4 ways to improve social media content

As B2B marketers plan a stronger social media marketing campaign for 2013, it may be helpful to have a unique approach for the most popular sites. With billions of connected users worldwide, original content and optimized sites and profiles will attract the desired audience.

A 2012 Q4 survey by Global Web Index displayed the latest news on social media sites’ active users. While Facebook is still No. 1 with over 50 percent of global users, Google Plus came in second with approximately 25 percent. YouTube and Twitter were third and fourth respectively, both with just over 20 percent of global users.
