Social media: Tasmanians lead nation!

Recently I attended an excellent presentation by FontPR on ground breaking research on trends in the use of social media by Tasmanians. The presentation was accompanied by fine staff and fine food – very Tasmanian! Thanks to Becher and the crew. “New research reveals majority of Tasmanians are keeping it social” – FONT PR

Tasmanians are leading the nation in social media usage with research released today revealing well over half the State is keeping it social online, abolishing the outdated view that the phenomenon is just a passing fad.

The Font Public Relations Social Media Index 2011 , which surveyed 1000 adults, provides Tasmania’s first insight into social media usage trends across the State.

Also of interest is the usage by the 1,000 respondents of the various social media: Facebook 46%, Twitter 6%, YouTube 44%, Linkedin 3%, Blogs 12%, Flickr 5%, Foursquare 1%.

See Social Media Index 2011 for the research details.
