More Than A Third Of Internet Users Update Their Status Weekly

Updating a social networking website has never been easier with the plethora of tools available. And for many of today’s Internet users, updating these networks has become a common thing. According to a study performed by the North American Technographics Empowerment Online Survey, 33% of the surveyed group indicated that they update a social networking website or post tweets to Twitter on a weekly basis.

The group – labeled as “Conversationalists” – was described by one of the two people behind the study, Josh Bernoff from Groundswell. Just 30% of the conversationalists are under the age of 30 and the majority of them are female users.

Creators, another category, includes users who publish a blog, web site or upload various forms of media. They are a slightly smaller group than the conversationalists, coming in at 24% of all online adults.

It’s easy to conclude that people are getting involved with social networks more than ever. With services such as Ping.fm available to update a variety of social networks with a single update, it makes it easy for the casual social networker to keep all of their platforms up to date.
