For my #Fitbloggin presentation on branding, I asked healthy living bloggers to take part in an anonymous survey, powered by my sponsor friends at SurveyMonkey (disc). Nearly 400 people responded and the information shared here is part of an ongoing series called “Bloggers in Depth.” The results are available for download here and I invite you to do analysis on your own blog!
In the last Bloggers in Depth posts, we looked at “Who We Are,” ”What We Do,” “What We Make,” “Knowing Our Numbers,” “Tech Talk” and “Picture Perfect.” Today, we look at the different social media outlets we use, and how often we use them!
Y’all KNOW I’m a social media addict…so it should be no surprise that I geeked out when I saw these stats.
92% of the people who responded to the survey are on Twitter. That’s not a huge shock, but it does make me wish I’d done the same survey 5 years ago — the numbers would have been very different!
83% use Twitter to promote their blog or blogs. But (and this surprised me!) the majority of you only have one Twitter account (75%).
I asked people to share reasons why they might not have a Twitter account, and many (32%) said they’re just not interested.
No shock here — 97% of people who responded are on Facebook.
But again — for the most part (69%) you only have one profile or page.
SHOCKINGLY — of the people who are on Facebook, only about half of you (53%) use it to promote your blog.
What other social networks do you belong to? Here are a few of the answers:
- Daily Mile
- Spark People
- Blog Frog
In the next installment, I’ll wrap up the remaining questions and results — including what kind of support we get from friends and families when it comes to blogging.
