3 Interesting Facebook Infographics

By: Garin Kilpatrick

This post features three infographics from the marketing guru’s over at Hubspot.

The first infographic is about profile activity, and the next two show which kind of Facebook pages are successful, and which are not.

Here is the first infographic, Facebook Profile Activity by Age.  From glancing at this graphic a few things stick out to me.  First is the popularity of quotes, especially in the twenty to thirty age range.

The next blatantly obvious trend is that wall posts are much more prolific among younger Facebook users.  There also seems to be a correlation between the frequency of wall posts and the number of friends.

Find your age on this graph and see how your age stacks up in terms of the different variables.  Do you find any of this data suprising?

Facebook vs. Google Infographic

Facebook and Google are the two giants of the online world.

The infographic below shows Facebook vs. Google.  Although Facebook has more active daily users, and those users spend more time on the site, Google far outweighs Facebook in terms of revenue.

The reason for Google’s revenue superiority is becuase Google ads can relate directly to the keywords someone is searching for, whereas Facebook advertising is a display model and has to guess what users will be interested in clicking on, based on demographics and interests.

Suprisingly though the Facebook IPO for Facebook, which is expected to happen sometime in 2011, will trump Google’s 2004 IPO by far.  Perhaps one day Facebook ad revenue will surpass Google, but for this to happen Facebook will likely need to become the primary search engine of choice, rather than Google.

Expect big developments from both of these online giants in the weeks, months, and years to come.

Facebook vs. Twitter Infographic

Back when Twitter was first taking flight in terms of social media success Facebook tried to buy Twitter for about $500,000,000 in Facebook stock.

Mark Zuckerberg would have been making a smart investment, had Twitter accepted his offer, since Twitter is currently valued at $4,000,000,000, which is based on the fact that just a month ago they raised $200,000,000.

Facebook, on the other hand, recently raised $1.5 billion in funding and is valued at somewhere between $50,000,000,000 and $75,000,000,000.

Check out the infographic below for a further breakdown on the differences between these two social media giants:
