Social Media Statistics
Social Media is indeed a world that has always fascinated me.
In the earlyes 2000 I created my first blog in a very limited blogger hosting service provided by Portuguese leading internet services Sapo, created by a group of college kids growing into the best of the best Portuguese internet company. Here is the main page and its so much more than this nowadays.
At the time I was taking my first risk of a series of other reckless decisions I had came to take in the following years, and I enrolled in a Multimedia Design vocational course. When I first told my professors I had a blog they didn’t even know what it was, and it kind of destroyed the idea I had of them, of being innovators out ot the box technological and internet gurus. So, I taught them all about blogging (or what I thought it was blogging).
At first I used my blogger to post my multimedia work, mainly Photoshop experiences, which I came to find out later on that other people were using it to profit out of my work and I couldn’t do anything about it (my first contact with copyrights lack of laws in the Internet).
After that blogger experience I created a couple of other blogs, my last one was a huge success on the internet I had up to 10.000 page views per day. However, and despite all this success I shut it down some years ago to devout myself to other social media as Facebook.
Since part of my work is made in Social Media I have this huge previlege of spending my work hours surfing in twitter, facebook, LinkedIn as reading and learning how to improve the engagement with clients and potential clients in social media tools.
