Social Media Statistics Australia – January 2015

SMPerth // 02nd February 2015

Statistics compiled by SocialMediaNews.com.au for January 2015.

Typically over the summer holiday months in Australia we see users turn away from typical business social networking and we see more leisure based updates.

It’s quite simple to say that we that we log out of LinkedIn, and get on Facebook to post up our summer-time adventures.

Key Points/ Commentary

  • Facebook grows 200,000 users as the summer holidays give new users plenty of time to talk about the site with people they know then sign-up.
  • LinkedIn continues to see a slight drop in users over the summer period as people have time off work.
  • Yelp and Tripadvisor see an increase in users as people go on holidays and enjoy the holidays visiting new places.
  • YouTube sees another slight increase.
  • Most other social networks remain steady.
