Last night was AZIMA‘s inaugural meeting, and nine of us here at Vertical Measures attended. Hosted at the Tempe Mission Palms, we enjoyed a nice social hour accompanied by a pasta bar and informative presentation by Chris Murch, from wsRadio.com.
Facebook is the largest social networking site on the web. Yesterday Facebook announced on their blog that there are now 250 million Facebook users
worldwide. Just three and a half months ago (98 days to be exact) Facebook reported 200 million Facebook users. That’s a rate of roughly 510,204 signups a day, about 350 a minute, and 5.5 per second, give or take a few.
that in the last six months alone the 55 year olds and up have flocked to Facebook in massive numbers, increasing that overall demographic by 513%! Surprisingly, the report also
states that students, both high school and college, have decreased by 20%. They chalked this up to more and more adults flocking to the site causing an alienation of the younger groups. Not so cool to have your parents on the same social networking site? Guess not. It could, in part, have something to do with the fact that many seniors graduated in May and June as well, but those items don’t seem to have been factored into the report.
have been added to Facebook, another great tool for business owners, celebrities, and the like. These embeddable widgets can be placed on your website, updating your site visitors with the valuable information contained in your Facebook news feed. Celebs like Lance Armstrong have already implemented
this feature onto their site.
Lots of exciting news about Facebook! Don’t miss out on the AZIMA event, August 11th at 6:00 p.m. Early registration will be available soon, so check back often to secure your seat at the next social event and while your waiting join AZIMA and be apart of a great new interactive marketing association in Arizona.
