I just stumbled upon an old blog post from the fine ladies and gentlemen at Hubspot, trying to convince me that Social Media Is A Lot Like Sex.
It's not. And here's 10 reasons why...
Social media is all about doing it in public.
57% of marketers have acquired customers via blogging. Fewer than 52% of them have acquired customers via sex. Possibly significantly fewer.
It's okay to charge for social media.
And it's fine to tweet your siblings.
Almost eight new people come onto the internet every second. (This one doesn't really work, but it made us snigger.)
Social media spreads the word. Sex just spreads cooties.
The average UK user spends over 26 minutes on Facebook every day. If there's an equivalent stat for sex then no wonder our economy's in a mess.
The average Twitter user has 27 followers, but most of the ones who follow @KimKardashian have zero sexual partners.
42% of employers say no to any use of social media in the workplace. Yeah, even at the office Christmas party. Prudes.
My wife enjoys social media.
