How many times have we tried to explain to our clients the Brand Exposure, SEO and Affinity implications when it comes to social media? Countless. Well, here is a Social Media for Dummies cheat sheet. I don’t recommend you take this as the Bible, but it is a nice summary for those who don’t work in this space each and everyday…
It’s been called “the Holy Grail of all Internet fun.” Just when you think you’ve seen the worst and most vile social media has to offer, here comes Chat Roulette. The site activates your webcam automatically; when you click “start” you’re suddenly staring at another human on your screen and they’re staring back at you, at which point you can either choose to chat (via text or voice) or just click “next,” instantly calling up someone else…and about half the people on this don’t wear pants.

This is great work by Peter Warden, a former Apple engineer. He started scraping public profiles and photos from hundreds of millions of Facebook accounts about a year ago, and now has data collected from more than 200 million around the world. Seems Facebook users in the U.S. can be roughly segmented into seven regions, which he named facetiously:
- Stayathomia: This belt’s defining feature is how near most people are to their friends, implying they don’t move far.
- Dixie: Like Stayathomia, Dixie towns tend to have links mostly to other nearby cities rather than spanning the country.
- Greater Texas: Unlike Stayathomia, there’s a definite central city to this cluster, otherwise most towns just connect to their immediate neighbors.
- Mormonia: The only region that’s completely surrounded by another cluster, Mormonia mostly consists of Utah towns that are highly connected to each other, with an offshoot in Eastern Idaho.
- Nomadic West: The defining feature of this area is how likely even small towns are to be strongly connected to distant cities; it looks like the inhabitants have done a lot of moving around the county.
- Socalistan: LA is definitely the center of gravity for this cluster. Almost everywhere in California and Nevada has links to both LA and SF, but LA is usually first.
- Pacifica: Tightly connected to each other, it doesn’t look like Washingtonians are big travelers compared to the rest of the West, even though a lot of them claim to need a vacation
