Pinterest’s most-followed users (averaging 800,000 followers apiece) prefer to pin from tablets. 58% surveyed by HelloSociety said they did the majority of pinning from a tablet, followed by mobile (30%), and then a desktop/notebook (12%). OK so what does that mean for ecommerce companies, media companies and anyone else who wants to spread content to the site’s 30 million monthly visitors?
In short, make sure your tablet site doesn’t suck."
I don’t really use Facebook, but when I do, it’s all about my private life and old friends. I never really talk about work, ideas or interests, it’s truly social, but in a strange, awkward, historic way… it’s like looking at a life I once lived or a path I didn’t take. For people I went to school with, it must be impossible to workout what I’m like now. In this way, I’m socially closed off… distant… standing in the corner, not talking to anyone, during a school reunion .
Twitter is more about ideas and interests, it’s my true place… (although I do go through moments of panic because I realise I’m a bit sweary and negative) – it represents me more as a professional. I think it gives a truer representation of how/who I am."
I’ve started appreciating traditional business-customer relationships more than ever. I enjoy paying for things because it’s an explicit business transaction. There’s nothing phony about it.
Apple doesn’t give me an iPad because they want to be friends with me. They give me an iPad because I pay them for an iPad. My accountant doesn’t do my taxes because he’s a philanthropist. I pay him to do my taxes.
With money, comes accountability to the customer. If my iPad stops working, Apple has to answer to me. If my tax return has errors, my accountant will be answering questions.
No one is answering my questions at Google, Facebook, et al. Why would they? They have customers to attend to, and I’m not one of them."
