Friday Favorites – Social Media Facts

For this week’s Friday Favorites, I’ve gathered up some of the Career Social Media tweets from this past week and I have five great articles for you, all having to do with something I love — social media outlets!

  • For those of you who love statistics, here are 20 Stunning Social Media Facts, plus an infographic. This is a great overview of social media and how it is growing in today’s society.
 
  • If you’re looking for more fun statistics and facts, this article 48 Significant Social Media Facts, Figures and Statistics, plus 7 infographics, is the place for you! This article goes over seven main social media outlets, which include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+.
 
  • We all know LinkedIn is probably the most professional social media outlet, yet not a lot of young adults are taking advantage of its resources. How to Reach Out to Recruiters Using LinkedIn is a great article explaining how to do this!
 
  • A lesser known social media outlet, Pinterest, is an interactive, virtual pinboard that lets you save things that you see on the web, but it can also help you get a job! Can Pinterest Help Your Job Search? gives you the ins-and-outs of this fun website and how you can utilize their resources.
 
  • And for the final one, here’s an infographic having to do with personal branding with social media. And if you want  more information about personal branding, be sure to check out last week’s blog post, The Power of Personal Branding.
