Top 3 Reason Affluents Use Social Network Sites

The top 3 reasons why affluent individuals use social networking sites are not earth shattering. A marketing company performed a poll on affluent indivduals for This poll highlighted several things that most marketers already realized.

55% of polled used social networking sites to hear what friends and family were doing.

53% polled wanted to reconnect with old friends and classmates.

47% polled wanted to share new with friends and family.

These results from the poll didn't really surprise me. Never forget the single most important thing when dealing with social network media sites. The power is with the people and without the people the networking sites are really nothing. Marketers and advertisers have to keep that in mind when targeting the type of social media for their products.

We are all very busy in are daily lives and our families are scattered all over geographically. Social media has allowed us to connect and reconnect, set up networks, social clubs and talk to people that 2o, 30 or 40 years ago just wouldn't have happened as easily.
