If Facebook was a country, it would have a population of 400 million and be the third largest country in the world. 70% of its users are outside the United States. Nearly 50% of all users login daily. YouTube announced that it has reached 2 billion videos on the popular portal. Twitter has more than 75 million user accounts. Linked In boasts 50 million users. Flickr hosts more than 4 billion images.
We see the statistics. We hear the industry buzz. Yet, many of us fail to harness the power of social media to be contextual and relevant to target consumers. What are you waiting for? Build your own country.
