Social Media Statistics Australia – November 2014

on December 1, 2014 | Australia | Comments (0)

af320As 2014 comes to an end we see a slight shift in how users consume their social media.

Over the Christmas holiday period, from December to February there is a shift in social media usage, away from business orientated social networks to much more holiday and leisure focused use.

Business social networks typically receive less traffic, where as traditional social networks notice a spike in traffic due to extended holiday and recreation periods.

With that in mind, we post our statistics today showing the most popular networks in Australia over November 2014.
