Here’s a quick video from technology job board Dice listing 13 social media facts and 7+ benefits of social recruiting.
Main takeaways for me here were:
- 85% of tech professionals use Facebook and 41% use Twitter
- In January 2012, users spent on average 405 minutes on Facebook
- 30% of Twitter’s audience make more than $100k
- The Google Plus button is used more than 5 billion times per day
- Professional bloggers manage on average 4 blogs (yes, I can vouch for that)
