of has just published an interesting study of the usage habits of 325 random Facebook users. See the full results at http://www.stonetemple.com/how-are-people-using-facebook/
There are a number of interesting and sometimes surprising insights in the results, but one that I would have predicted is shown below. Nearly 3/4 of the surveyed Facebook users have never heard of Graph Search, and of those who have, only a little over a third have ever used it.
Why would I have predicted this? Because people don't go to Facebook for search. They go to Facebook for entertainment, distraction, and to catch up on what friends are doing. The high passivity of Facebook users is reflected in another part of the survey, where we see that only 25% of these users update their own status once a day or more.
Remember all the hooplah about Graph Search when it was first announced about a year ago? Hearing much about it today?
To see my predictions about why Facebook Graph Search would be fail, made back in January, see my post http://www.virante.org/blog/2013/01/15/facebook-graph-search-search-quality-and-the-meaning-of-like/
As the own and writer at Techieminx.com I write about things that I am passionate about, that I think you would want to read. On subjects such as tech, gaming, gadgets, music, mobile, social media, networks, applications and the web! I love to write reviews, news and help posts and try to give tips and tricks regarding social media and social networking. Techieminx tries to keep all of the people informed that don’t want too much tech jargon and just want the simple, basic facts. Sometimes with a walk through and pictures to guide: yet hopefully short and sweet and straight to the point and on occasions even a little bit cheeky.
I also now own FairyDustMedia.co.uk - which will include much more information about social media and social networks. Pop over and have a look - we also have our own Facebook page too.
In addition to this I've written a Novel – still in progress, yes still - one day :)
Just one thing, I will be honest in my appraisal of it though.
Oh and there's more........ I don't update it much but you can always view my art gallery art.techieminx.com
