Below are a few of the more interesting WeChat and Weibo stats from this round of updates. Keep in mind that there are now dozens of stats listed in my Weibo and WeChat posts, so use the links below to check out each of the posts if you are looking for more.

If you haven’t noticed, LinkedIn has become quite a bit more active recently. I am trying to find some solid engagement stats that measure this recent growth to share with all of you, but haven’t found anything god yet. The uptick in activity is conspicuous enough that someone will do a study on it soon, especially with long-form posts becoming available to the masses.

Anyways, here are some of the stats I was able to dig up.

Social media is undeniably an integral part of our daily routine and brings huge benefits to both our business and personal lives. As these benefits become more apparent, an increasing number of brands and businesses are integrating social media into their overall marketing strategies. These platforms give brands a free and invaluable way to connect with clients (both current and potential), spread brand warmth, monitor competitors, manage customer service, gain customer insights and drive website traffic….so what’s not to love?
Yet, many brands are jumping feet first into the social media realm without truly understanding the basics; mainly, how to post content. This seems like a no-brainer to some people, yet many brands still don’t know the most basic and fundamental ‘rules’ of social media. Yes, social media is integral to your brand, but going out all guns blazing with no planning or strategy may in fact do more harm than good.
