Hillary Clinton Sticks with Facebook Twitter and YouTube

Hillary_2016_Presidential_RaceOkay, the big 2016 presidential announcement is now officially in the books. Hillary Clinton is running for President in 2016. When the announcement took place, her staff posted a two-minute video to introduce her campaign and posted it on social media for the world to absorb it. A+ for effort and attention grabbing. After watching the video, people who are interested in learning more about Mrs. Clinton went to her website at www.hillaryclinton.com. Her website asks for your email address and zip code to join her on her journey. If you wanted to follow her through social media you probably also noticed the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube icons to the middle right of her website’s homepage. It looks like she’s sticking with the top three social media avenues and did not include: Pinterest, Google+ or Instagram. Does that mean that the other social media networks are not big enough or good enough to include in a presidential campaign? What about LinkedIn where millions of  U.S. business people congregate on a daily basis? Maybe there will be something included on these other social networks in the future, but for now she’s sticking with the big ones.

 

Do you think Hillary and other Presidential candidates should be promoting their campaigns on other social media networks as well? What do you think?

When Google+ Splits into Photos and Streams

googleplus-buttonWhen Google decides to change one of their brands, everyone in social media needs to be on alert. For example, Sundar Pichai, who is the senior VP of products at Google, told Forbes that plans are in place to split up the Google+ brand into two difference services. The two are said to be Photos and Streams. The Photos portion is probably going to be more like Instagram and the Streams will most likely be social media feeds and posts that you can send for Facebook, Twitter, etc.

The company has not made an official announcement yet, but when they do, it will be big news.

What are your thought on the current state of Google+?

Khloe Kardashian and her friends post on Instagram

One day after her NBA star husband, Lamar Odom, was arrested for DUI, Khloe Kardashian does a smart thing… posts an Instagram photo of her with friends to divert the attention away from Lamar. Did it work? Some Hollywood experts think so. When entertainment news hits, people usually turn to Twitter to catch the latest buzz, right? So, Khloe hopped on the bandwagon and posted something other than Khloe/Lamar photos and info. That in turn got people tweeting about something else. This girl is smart!

What do you think about her Instagram photo posting?

There are millions of statistics about the entertainment industry and social media, but when the two cross over, amazing things can happen.

Take Justin Bieber for an example. He’s probably one of the most widely known young pop music stars on the planet, right? Justin and his business entourage have done a lot of good things to grow his career, but social media may have played the biggest role. Justin knows that its his young female fans that have helped him get where he is today. Without them tweeting, liking, posting, instagraming and commenting on a daily basis, he might not have as big a career. Let’s take a look at Justin Bieber’s social media numbers and how that compares to other top celebs.

 

Justin’s Twitter Followers: over 41,800,000

Justin’s Facebook Likes: over 55,700,000

Justin’s YouTube Subscribers: over 5, 200,000

According to SocialBakers.com stats, Justin’s top 3 distribution of Facebook fans comes from United States at 15.4%, Indonesia at 11% and India at 11%.

Justin has been on  Twitter since 2009. Over the past four years, has sent out over 22,000 tweets. That averages out to over 400 tweets per month or more tan 14 tweets per day.  Consistency has certainly paid off with an astounding Twitter fanbase of more than 41 million followers. That number put him ahead of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga by more than 2.5 million followers. He gains more 1.4 million new Twitter followers every month. These numbers put Justin at the top of the heap making him the King of  Twitter celebs!

Here’s the Top 5 Twitter Celebrities according to SocialBakers.com

1. Justin Bieber- 41,833,000+

2. Katy Perry- 39,296,000+

3. Lady Gaga- 39,128,000+

4. Taylor Swift- 30,787,000+

5. Rihanna- 30,551,000+

 

However, Justin is lacking the numbers on Facebook to make him number one. Without much of a surprise, Rihanna has secured her spot as the Queen of Facebook Likes.

The Top 6 Facebook Celebrities according to SocialBakers.com

1. Rihanna- 73, 926,000+

2. Eminem- 73, 137,000+

3. Shakira- 66,797,000+

4. Michael Jackson- 61,203,000+

5. Lady Gaga- 58,274,000+

6. Justin Bieber- 55,717,00+

Do you think the order of these celebrity likes will continue or will someone else be moving up the charts?

What do you think will happen?
