Are All Your Social Eggs in the Facebook Basket?

Social Eggs – Not All in Facebook!

It hit me like a rock; I had been thinking it but when I analyzed the stats it hit me. Why do some people put all their social eggs in the Facebook basket? Do they believe Facebook is the be all, the end all?

I noticed in the views of our websites and blogs that most of them came from Google organic, StumbleUpon and Twitter. Slowly Bing and Yahoo are catching up too on the organic side. But Facebook was near the bottom of the list on most days. So why do folks insist on staying just on Facebook? It’s great for family and friends but if you are trying to do business, hop on over to some new baskets. Don’t just keep all your online stuff in the Facebook basket. What if site goes down one day? Where will you go?

You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you’ll find over on Twitter and Google+.This is the order of visits by the most for the past 30 days:

  • StumbleUpon
  • YouSayToo
  • Twitter
  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • Blogger
  • Bing
  • NewsMeBack
  • Facebook

The same applies for all of the above, do not just stay in any one social basket. Spread those eggs around and tryto be active on at least 3 social networks. More if you can but not only one network. It’s okay to have a favorite but just be prepared when and if the site may go down for a little time.


Are all your eggs in the Facebook basket or are you spreading your social eggs out?

Updated 6/14/2013 – These days most visits now come from Google, Bing, Pinterest, Triberr, Facebook and several other new ones.
