Are you Prepared to Compete in a Web 2.0 World?
Here are some statistics straight from the horse's mouth - if by horse I mean The Pew Internet & American Life Project. Pew produces reports that explore the impact of the internet on families, communities, work and home, daily life, education, health care, and civic and political life.
Fifty-seven percent of online adults have used the internet
to watch or download video. More than half of online video viewers (57%) share
links to the video they find with others, and three in four (75%) say they
receive links to watch video that others have sent to them.
More than a third of American adult internet users (36%) consult the citizen-generated online encyclopedia Wikipedia. And 50% of Americans with a college degree consult Wikipedia.
More than a quarter (28%) of internet users have tagged or
categorized content online such as photos, news stories or blog posts on sites
such as Del.icio.us, Flickr, YouTube.com, and Technorati.com.
Just over half of American adult internet users (51%) have
taken virtual tours of another location online.
That translates to about 72 million people who have taken advantage of the internet to explore other areas.
More than a third (39%) of Internet users read someone else’s online journal, web log or blog.
If you're NOT using the internet to its full potential, you are missing out.
If you've ever said "What's a Wiki (or blog, or podcast, or vlog, or social networking site, or user generated content)?" then you might just be a Web 2.0 newbie.
72 million people know more than you do about utilizing Web 2.0 apps.
