I am the Founder and CMO at Idea Girl Media, an international Social Media Marketing Agency. I help business brands, non-profits and public figures achieve social media success and positive online reputation. Most often with: Real Estate, Interior Design, Restaurants, Travel Services, Entertainment, and Government Agencies. My insight has been featured at SteamFeed.com, Search Engine People, and I have been featured & quoted by Business Insider and AOL Small Business. Non-fat lattes, travel & quick wit make me smile, and I am always enthused to meet new people!
Great content, slick infographic.
One tool I would add is BundlePost - For content curation and distribution. It's made a huge difference in my own online markeitng, and for clients.
Free and paid options for individuals, social media managers, and content marketers.
Still processing. Interesting points. Watching other industries and how they are considering the developing world markets - Quite a strategic move indeed.
I agree with Warren Whitlock that user counts are not all that.
But, I appreciated your pointing out how people access in the USA and even Europe is not the same as in all locations, and we can't use the same model of thought for all.
Thanks for your insight.

Thank you for your clear and concise resource.
I've heard you speak, and read other work by you via other channels. Here, your words are perfect timing to share with others for a project.
It is surprising to me that so many have a hard time accepting your points to be true. As even before social media was social media, sales success came from informing, providing value, and solving pain-points. Still does.
Thanks also for your wisdom on owning the second paragraph!
Really good post! Solid tips, excellent advice, and a great new tool to try.
Nice touch with the SlideShare - I want to know how you got the pop-up in there...
We're all guilty of starting somewhere. And for some people online, the ins and outs of social media are not obvious (those of more seasoned generations).
Though, "When in Rom...".
It kills me to see people using these behaviors you describe above - The begging. And the consistent feeding of information without engaging. Yikes! It's one thing to not know, but another to keep on after taking a lesson or two. Eventually we tune this out, right?
My Facebook page has been described lately as a party. People commented they were drawn in because it was fun. I respond to each post, and I visit pages of admins that visit me.
It's a 2-way street.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and providing this resource for those curious and learning!
Fun look at the Super Bowl - Love how you used the embedded tweets!
I thought Walgreens and Oreo were the most clever.
A memorable event for sure (I don't usually watch, but I did).
Thanks for sharing your insights,
