I just wrote about utilizing social sharing on your landing pages, so the timing of this infographic couldn't be better. The numbers are staggering on how social is impacting your brand's visibility online. Unlike other mediums, we consistently find that social sharing is a fantastic opportunity to spread the word via relevant social networks. A social share combines the advantages of word of mouth in addition to endorsement.
Addthis has provided this infographic, releasing the statistics on over 10 million sites reaching 1.2 billion people over 5 years! A key takeaway for me is the peak sharing time of 9:30AM. As you work through your sharing strategy, you may want to take into consideration the time zones of the audience you're wishing to reach!
