Socialogue: Share and Share Alike? Not Exactly.

Global - With the "like" and "share" symbols in front of us at every click and with the ability to comment or start a flow of conversation as easy as flipping a light switch, it's not surprising that just over eight in ten of us share some part of our lives online. Interestingly, nearly 25% claim they don't hold back and share most things or everything online. No filter. No privacy. This outspoken segment is balanced somewhat by the 19% who say they share nothing online. Every age demographic, from those younger than 35 (87%) to those older than 50 (72%), shares something. Some may feel that people are sharing too much information (TMI), but the more consumers share, the more opportunity a brand has to learn a lot about consumers and use what they learn to create messaging that is more likely to get liked, shared and re-posted. Bet you "like" that!
