The latest social media stats include this: Americans spend 25% of their time on social media.YouTube has viewers now watch 1 billion hours of video each day. 85% of digital video viewers will be YouTube viewers as daily usage of YouTube, is estimated the video-sharing platform will reach 185.9 million monthly US users in 2017 Facebook having 2.047 billion monthly users watching 8 billion videos each day. In addition, 81% of all shares come from Facebook. 41% of Millennials use Facebook every day. And, there are now 5 million active advertisers on its platform, up from 4 million in September 2016 and 2 million in February 2015. Instagram has 700 million users of which 250 million are daily users. 88% of Twitter users are on mobile. An average of 500 million tweets are sent every day with 320 million active users. Twitter had 9 million new members sign up in Q1 2017. The Google+1 button is hit 5 billion times per day. 80% of Internet users on Pinterest are female. Eighty-one percent of US consumers use Facebook regularly, compared with Google (79%), Twitter (43%) and Instagram (40%), System1 Research reported.

Skype has 300 milllion active users and there are 1.000 billion users on Whatsapp. With 900 million active users on Facebook Messenger, 60 billion messages are sent via Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp every day, each with over 1 billion daily users.

Consumers Feel Social Media Gives Them Voice With Brands. Data from social media analytics and monitoring service Sprout Social revealed that many US internet users believe social media has given them more of a voice to expose unfair treatment from brands and be more critical of them in general. Per Rimma Kats writing in eMaerketer, the study, which surveyed 1,003 US internet users ages 18 to 64 in July 2017, found that eight in 10 respondents said social media helped to uncover instances of brands treating people unfairly. And seven in 10 said that it helped encourage transparency. For the most part, dishonesty and bad customer service led many internet users to complain about brands on social media. But those weren’t the only reasons. Troubles with a bad product, brands being too political and a lack of responsiveness also triggered some respondents to air frustrations about companies on social media.

While a majority of respondents voiced concerns on social media to raise awareness among consumers, many did so to either get an apology or solution from the brand. But as it turns out, an unhelpful response from brands is sometimes considered worse than no response at all. In fact, 50% of those polled said they would never buy from a brand again if it responded poorly to their complaint. Nearly as many said a bad response via social media increased the possibility that they would share their experience with friends.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

CBS Buys Ten in Australia.

CBS Corp. broadened its international footprint Sunday by announcing it had purchased Network Ten, one of three broadcast networks in Australia. The terms of the deal was not immediately available, but Network Ten had recently been placed into receivership, an alternative to bankruptcy. Network Ten’s creditors had included Lachlan Murdoch, executive co-chairman of 21st Century Fox and News Corp., and Australian media magnate Bruce Gordon. The two executives had been said to have considered making a bid of their own.

The acquisition will likely spur the export of CBS programming franchises to the Australian market. In many recent talks with investors, CBS Chairman and Chief Executive Leslie Moonves and Chief Financial Officer Joseph Ianiello have talked up the importance of international distribution to CBS’ operations. “Speaking of international, this pillar is growing consistently because we continue to expand our content pipeline,” Ianiello said in an early-August call with analysts following the release of the company’s second quarter results. As advertising revenue, the traditional fuel for media companies, narrows as consumers migrate to new ways of getting their video information and content, overseas holdings have taken on greater importance at several U.S. TV kingpins. Viacom Inc. recently made its former head of international operations, Bob Bakish, its new chief executive. Discovery Communications has placed more emphasis on its ownership of Eurosport, a European sports broadcaster, as well as the rights it recently obtained to broadcast the Olympics in European markets.

Under terms of the pact, CBS gains the digital terrestrial television channel Eleven, in which it already owned a 33% stake, as well as Tenplay, a digital outlet. CBS said it would use its new purchase to launch “CBS All Access,” its subscription video-on-demand service, in the Australian market. CBS recently announced plans to make “All Access” available in Canada next year, “Network Ten is a prime broadcasting asset with over half a century of experience and brand equity in Australia,” said Moonves, in a statement. “We have been able to acquire it at a valuation that gives us confidence we will grow this asset by applying our programming expertise in a market with which we are already familiar.” CBS said the transaction is subject to certain regulatory approvals and will be completed in accordance with the Australian voluntary administration process.

Network Ten’s origins go back to the 1960s, when the Australian government saw a need to open more TV outlets in order to dilute the overwhelming dominance of TV programming from overseas and build up availability of local content. Ten came into its own in 1972 with the soap opera “Number 96,” a racy serial that introduced the nation to sex scenes and nudity on TV as well as comedic characters. Ten was the first to broadcast “Baywatch” and “The Simpsons” in Australia, and in recent years, has broadcast popular CBS programs such as “Madam Secretary” and “Scorpion.” The network has also aired “Australian Survivor,” the Down Under version of the durable CBS reality competition
