    1. Um, I don’t know about anyone else but I can barely read some of thes smaller text so half the valuable info is lost. A link to a larger version would be nice. Thanks for posting though. :)

    2. Leah,

      That would be because these aren’t infographics. They’re info-posters. Unfortunately there seems to be complete confusion around the matter here (and in many other places such as Mashable!)

    4. I think people will follow a brand if the brand offers good quality for a reasonable price. Also customer service is an important thing.

      How old is this data? Is this being pulled from the 2009 Razorfish Fluent report and the econsultancy and social media today coverage that ran in early 2010 and fall 2010 respectively? Some source attributions and dates showing when the data was pulled would be massively helpful as this looks like one to two year old data.

    6. Chris, why is it old data? It was posted like two months ago.

    7. Wow, great stats, i never thought about the real reason of getting fans on social networks, Special deals are the main reason why the people follows a brand!!! impresive!

    8. Umm i just had one problem, some of the text is too small to read but although i magnified that later on :P

    9. Thank you Get Satisfaction! this info-graphic is an absolute mark!

    10. The thing is that we are getting so “online” that comments or recommendations of so called friends on socialmedia sites like facebook.twitter etc actually matters and has a great value for people that are anti-socialized because of these sites. People stay at home more and more not seeking for contact with relatives becoming robots , slaves

    11. ”think people will follow a brand if the brand offers good quality for a reasonable price. Also customer service is an important thing. ”

      I think people following a brand in the future wen it’s trending topic on twitter facebook and other social media you think also?

    12. Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this internet website needs way more consideration. I’ll most most likely be once much more to understand way much more, thanks for that information.

    13. I think people giving a like to a page, because the would like to follow the latest news of like the posts of the brand.
