[Infographic] : 10 Types of Social Media users
Top Dog Social Media, a agency specialized on Social Media, has released an infographic about Social media users. In this infographic, there are 10 types of social media users: The Listener, the Activist, the Spammer, the Passionista, The Social Butterfly, The Troll, The Teacher, The Early Adopter, The Black Booker, The Family Man.
An active social media user but prefers to fly under the radar. They might like your posts but that doesn’t mean they will actually “like” it so the rest of Facebook knows. Comments are few and far between while posting to their own wall is more or less a foreign and misunderstood concept.
A compassionate heart and unsettled spirit gives this type of user a knack for promotion. They realize the power of social media and strive to have their voice heard to make a difference.
This is the type of person that tells themselves their cheesy posts count as “quality content” and that sending weekly promotional messages directly to your inbox is cool since you are Facebook friends.
A wonderful breed of user that truly enhances the social media world. Bonded by passion, this type of social media user focuses their time on exploring and sharing their passion with others online.
The Social Butterfly
This breed of social media user never seems to stop showing you how small the world is by getting tagged in pictures with seemingly every person you’ve ever met. If you want to know how popular they are, just check their Facebook wall!
That person that always manages to cross that line from unpleasant opposition to downright hate speech, no matter how sensitive or irrelevant the issue. These people aren’t worth any more time than it takes to hit the “block” button.
A special breed of Passionista that loves to share their knowledge. They are passionate about their topic and love to help others learn to love it as much as they do. They completely understand “quality content” and live and breathe it everyday.
The Early Adopter
They were on Facebook before it “sold out” and love to remind you about it. This special user has also likely moved on to the next new shiny social service that you might hear about in 18 months from now.
The Black Booker
A true relationship builder, this person looks at social media in the most practical way possible: a means to communicate with other people. Long before the days of cellphone memory, these people swore by having a little black book full of phone numbers!
The Family Man
Or woman, of course! These users tend to avoid technology but fell in love with social media the moment they realized they could keep in touch with their family members from every corner of the world as if they were right across the street.
When Brands understand how people communicate and discuss on social media, they will have a much easier time in creating content that will resonate with different types of social media users.
