Traffic referred to from social media up 20% in the last 6 months

September 28th, 2012 by Lloyd Gofton

Earlier this week the FT released the results of a survey that it carried out on the social media behaviour of its readers, or more specifically an online survey of 1,128 readers.

The results of the survey are illustrated in the infographic below and accessible here.

If proof of the influence of social media is needed, the survey confirms that social media is growing faster than every other traffic source to and traffic referred from this channel has grown by 20% in the last 6 months alone.

Furthermore, the FT has a global combined social media audience of 3.9m. 49% of which is based in the UK or US, with the remaining 51% coming from the rest of the world.

Finally, and perhaps most impressive, 58% of the FT social media audience agree social media enhances its reputation and 40% read the FT more as a result of it.

"I have a lot of respect for Liberate Media as they know exactly how a
relationship should be between a PR and journalist. Their journalist
background obviously helps, and they all have a really good understanding
of news and what a journalist needs to do their job effectively. I tell all
of my reporters to take their calls, and their good reputation extends far
beyond NMA."
