According to comScore, the United Kingdom is the top in Europe, with 24.9 million unique visitors, which is 78 percent of the total U.K. online population belonging to social networks.
This is new data that comScore retrieved via its Segment Metrix H/M/L analytical tool which was released just last month. The total social networking community in Europe was 127.3 million unique visitors in August. This is an amazing 56 percent of the Europe’s Internet user base.
There are variations on the phrase I don’t give a [flying] crap. But apparently that’s not always true. At Facebook, at least, they’ll give one, or throw one, so long as its imaginary and only costs them some personal information.
Search Engine Land will host the first annual SMX Social Media conference next week in New York. The event will take place Tuesday October 16 and Wednesday October 17. WebProNews will be there covering the event and will offer same day video interviews of the speakers.
Every community operator knows that it takes different kinds of participants to be successful. Some people come looking for answers, others come to help. Some like to expound at length, while others say little. Some are lurkers, others are prolific contributors.
Over the last couple of days, I have been reading with great interest a number of the different blog posts that the last two articles I wrote on ROI and Social Computing have sparkled and, as I am going through them digesting some of the great points they bring together (Something I will blog about as well at a later time), I thought I would create an interim pos
A few years ago I wrote to Microsoft’s leadership and asked them why they weren’t involved in the new Web 2.0 space. I got an answer back that was about 2,000 words long and included the words “business value” 13 times.

CBS is apparently really working to find something that will stick. Two weeks ago they were talking about social networking and making their content more portable.
Now they’re working on “EyeLab,” a studio dedicated to turning glossy 30- to 60-minute shows into bite-sized web clips. Even more revolutionary, CBS is also planning to involve users in not only watching video clips but making and uploading their own mashups of CBS clips.
If a social network user is dedicated enough to use two social networks concurrently, it might not be all that surprising that those same networkers spend, on average, more time at both sites. Networkers are networkers after all.
Business Week reports today that Digg will be rolling out a brand new, even more social site any minute now.
Designed to bring more of a social networking aspect to the site, the new design will feature the ability to create a “real” profile page, better connect with your Digg friends, monitor their activities and send them stories. Just what die-hard Diggers needed: another excuse to while away the hours on their favorite website.
These sites are all attractive and ready for you to check them out.
Most people would be reluctant to provide a stranger with their personal information, and it seems that social networks – as warm and welcome as they’re supposed to make us feel – can produce the same reaction. So, according to an emedia survey, people lie.
With social networks like MySpace and YouTube taking an active role in politics, social media offers a good opportunity for presidential candidates to connect with potential volunteers and donors, according to a new report from JupiterResearch, "Politics on the Net: Reaching Audiences that Matter."
Occationally I talk to progressive companies that have taken the leap into social media and have implemented full social communities with lots of features that enable users to interact on the site, but when I look at their site I discover a propriatry custom scripted website.
In most cases this is a GIANT Mistake.
