From The New Symbiosis of
Professional Networks Study
by Donald Bulmer & Vanessa DiMauro
   Traditional decision-making processes are being disrupted by social media
   Professionals tend to belong to multiple social networks for business purposes
   The “Big 3” LinkedIn, Facebook & Twitter, have emerged as primary professional networks
   Mobile is an important access point
   High levels of trust exist in information obtained from online networks
   There is a recognized need for peer input in decision-making.
   Final decision makers are more likely to conduct research via a search engine
       (82% vs. 70% of decision supporters)
 Professionals with more networks are more likely to gather opinions through their online
  network, read blogs and query Twitter as early steps in the decision process
 Younger respondents are more likely to read a company blog and to query via Twitter vs.
  older demographics
 Connecting and collaborating are key drivers for professionals’ use of social media.
 There is more collaboration happening externally than internally.

    Social Media Peer Groups (SMPG) have changed the way we do business as professionals
    (customers, partners, prospects, and employees). We use social media as a platform for
    discussion of ideas, experiences, and knowledge-exchange.
