This is the percentage of people who have simultaneously used another device when watching entertainment (I love a good tweet during The Apprentice). The results from the global study from Edelman showed the relationship between entertainment and social and showed that 51% did this ‘always’ or ‘most of the time’ and that seven in ten of these ‘experience enhancers’ are male and college educated.

The report also showed that in the UK 58% of social media users shared about entertainment, 65% about their own lives and 61% about their friends. (#predictable)



According to a white paper from eDigitalResearch and IMRG this is the percentage of online shoppers that feel that quicker responses to queries would help their online shopping experience and purchase journey. 40% of the survey respondents felt that a live chat service or free phone contact number would go a long way towards helping their shopping journey online.


1 million

Facebook hit a milestone this month announcing they now have 1 million active advertisers (those that have advertised in the last 28 days) on the site. They made the announcement in a blog post thanking its advertisers, the post also revealed a site that featured small businesses success stories and tips to encourage others to hop on board the Facebook advertising wagon…In a shameless plug Attacat can help you with this, so don’t be afraid to get in touch!



According to research from SocialBakers this is the average engagement rate of a tweeted Vine video. A tweeted YouTube video has an engagement rate of 0.05% despite Vine only launching about six months ago and up until this week only being available on iPhone and iPad. However its popularity on Twitter may be gaining on YouTube due to the ease of uploading to Twitter. Earlier this month Vine became available to Android users (20% of mobile Tweeters) an even larger pool of Vine videos is expected to now appear.

I have a personal favorite Vine video – it never fails!
