Twitter is All About the Links

Via steverubel:

Fortune recaps statements from Twitter on engagement. And there’s no surprise here….

“80% of Twitter engagement consists of people clicking on a tweet, while the remaining 20% is a Retweet or a Tweet.”

This is why brands on Twitter need to view themselves as curators. Tweet 75% of the time with links that are relevant to your zone and 25% about yourself. There’s too much competition for people’s time these days. It’s not about you.

<p>Hey Mark, I&#8217;m doing a research paper on Tumblr for class. About how many new blogs are started each day? Do you have a press kit or fact sheet that I could download?</p>

Hey! Right now around 45,000 new Tumblr blogs are started each day. Some numbers:

  • Total Tumblr blogs, 5/11: Almost 19 million
  • Total Tumblr blogs a year ago: Around 5.5 million
  • Number of new posts, daily: More than 30 million
  • Monthly unique users: 80 million
  • Total monthly pageviews: 6.7 billion. 
  • Per Quantcast, Tumblr is currently the 26th-largest Website in the U.S. 
  • That said, the U.S. only accounts for 43 percent of our traffic. Top five countries outside the U.S.: Brazil, UK, Canada, Japan, Philippines.

Let me know if you need anything else!
