Twitter in Spain

Actualized post (with data) about Twitter in Spain here.

twitter

60% of all Twitter users cancel their account after 2 months. Not the same as having a Flickr account – people could think you are dead… XS….

Twitter seemed to focus their main benefit in sharing links. But… even in this area Facebook gets the cake.

addtoany-breakdown Its simplicity is its advantage, and companies are interested in researching consumers opinions and trends.

twitter sucks

Doesn’t suck, still big, but not as Facebook, and its future not as bright, maybe in US but not yet in Spain – too many webcam girls and no pics; we are more “nudist” than other countries such as Germany (with 10% of users using Second Life under invented alias).

Besides, Twitter is really cool if you have an internet connected mobile phone, where most of connections take place but, in comparison with the States, price barriers for internet connection in Spain is abusive for a high % of population. Once the internet mobile market is opened, the hype could fade in benefit of FB.

Facebook’s benefit, applications, seems to be the winning attribute in social media which has its focus in users, and with Facebook Connect, it will also enter the blog-community realm – see Obama/CNN case. When? FBook promises that should be done by 2010.

Other Social Media which are focused in specific attributes, such as photo or video, don’t seem to be edangered because they work as perfect complements for posting.

Additional info:

US makes up 62% of all Twitter users, followed by UK with nearly 8% and Canada and Australia with 5.7% and 2.8% respectively. The largest non-English speaking country on Twitter? Brazil with 2%.

tito, me gusta el contenido de tu blog (hay un poco de todo, curiosidades y actualidad, y eso siempre es de agradecer, aunque igual te faltarían cuatro líneas con tu opinión al respecto), pero puestos a criticar (constructivamente, claro), creo que la forma deja mucho que desear… vamos, que dejarlo en blanco se ve bastante soso!
pero aún y así, me has robado el corazón, bribón, poniendo un link permanente a ‘sport’ jeje solo te falta otro a ‘el jueves’!
ea, hasta pronto, espero🙂 nos la vemos

lo de las opiniones toda la razón, me quedo atrás, al navegar por blogs de super-planners veo justificaciones tan lúcidas que las mias paliedcen, aunque supongo que todo este experimento va un poco de superar eso no?
A mojarse se ha dicho que es verano!!
