Facebook Will Undergo a “Rapid Decline”, Researchers Say

R.I.P. Facebook

It’s a known fact that young users no longer hang out on Facebook as much as they used to, but now there’s some scientific proof to it. A paper by John Cannarella and Joshua A.

What Is the Value of a Facebook “Like” Anyway?

Facebook Like

With over 1 billion active users as of this year, Facebook is no doubt the social network to master for marketers. However, for most company Facebook accounts, the focus isn’t generally on the number of “likes” or “fans” earned. While a Facebook “like” shows engagement, it’s the great content and the advertising opportunities that typically take the top spot on the priority list.

 

Google+ Statistics

Since Google+ doesn’t have its own analytics dashboard I’ve been trying to employ various hacks to get to the data I need. Today I’ll share another one that’s dead-simple to implement but only works for user profiles, not Google+ pages.
