Introduction
Welcome to Universal McCanns global research into the impact of socialmedia. This project is an ongoing commitment by Universal McCann to measure consumer usage, attitudes and interests in adopting social media platforms and is the largest exploration of its kind. It aims to provide the facts behind the hype. The first study was published in September 2006 (Wave 1) and the second study in June 2007 (Wave 2). This report (Wave 3) brings together the latest results fromWave 3 as well as tracking the evolving trends since Wave 1. Wave 3 surveyed 17,000 internet users in 29 countries and was completed in March 2008. Since Wave 1 in September 2006 the research has created genuine insights on the patterns of usage, such as China having more bloggers than the US, emerging markets leading take up and Japan shunning photo sharing. This latest report demonstrates thecontinued growth of social media, the impacts of this are huge. • The vast majority of users are producing content and there is an ongoing shift towards participation. • Media consumption is internationalising along language lines thanks to global social platforms. • Consumers are moving to on-demand media such as video clips and podcasts. • The role for advertisers and brands has never had so muchpotential – branded applications, content and services all offer huge potential in social media. • Emerging internet markets are leading the way in usage, closing the gap with developed countries.
