500 million on Facebook, 75 million on LinkedIn. Many of these users are actively utilizing social media for business purposes – as increasingly the usage of social media is about communications, collaboration and communities - your users are bringing these tools into the workplace - to connect with customers, prospect new business and collaborate with partners. A recent survey, published by FaceTime Communications, shows that the use of social networks and social media sites—like Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube—is not only widespread, but has seen a significant shift in usage profiles. Sixty-one percent of end users use these sites at least once a day, up from 51%. Fifteen percent use social networks "constantly throughout the day." Social networking is used by 95% of respondents.
