Lists, predictions and statistics, it seems that is the key message of most blogs in the last few days of 2010. Therefore some statistics about the content I produced this year:
I added a total of 4862 links to my Delicious account, which is an avarage of 13.3 links per day. Each of these links I also tweeted about, however besides 4862 tweets that contained links, I did more on Twitter: I tweeted another 6694 tweets making it a total of nearly 12,000 this year, of which 23% were replies and 5% were retweets (12,000 tweets is 1,36 tweets per hour 24/7) and approximately 2000 times a tweet was favorited by somebody (thanks favstar for that!). While still busy tweeting I produced around the 3,500 messages on the Capgemini Yammer Network this year.
Some content that also was sent to Twitter was my Posterous blog. This year I managed to publish a total of 420 items on that blog, on my other blogs I managed to publish also some content. To be more precize: 32 items on this blog, 66 items on my Dutch blog, 70 items on Capping IT Off (the award winning technology blog from Capgemini), 5 items on Marketingfacts and 3 items on Ambtenaar2.0.
Pictures and locations
Thanks to the great Mobypicture Christmas card I now know I uploaded a total 92 pictures to Mobypicture which received a total of 13,943 views. I still use Foursquare (especially now they added the feature to share a picture when you check in) and I think (however in depth statistics are lacking) I checked in about 600 times this year (with the highlight of becoming the mayor of the dentist office…)
Mail and presentations
In producing other content: I received a total of 8883 mails (size 1.97 GB) and sent out a total of 5609 mails (size 2.15 GB, I know I should work on my attachment habits…). However there is more in my life than sending email, since I also did a total of 60 presentations this year (personal highlight regarding presentations was PICNIC ’10). Of those 60 presentations I uploaded 16 of them to Slideshare and those had a total of 31,480 views.
During the last few months of this year I wrote together with one of my colleagues a point of view on Social Business Transformation, which will be published in 2011. And I appeared once in a Dutch newspaper and in a magazine of the government with a column. I was also invited to collaborate on a paper from CustomerThink and wrote a piece on social media and operations for this paper.
In 2010 I met over a 1000 people (as in: shook hands, and sometimes even having a drink together), this resulted in a doubling of my LinkedIn connections and a doubling of my Twitter followers (although the growth of Twitter might also be the result of the nearly 5000 links I shared and were carefully selected out of over 120,000 items I read in Google Reader). However far more important than just these numbers: it was great to meet these people and to get to know them.
A good year?
For me this was an excellent year, I have met a lot of great people and with most of them I am still in touch on a daily basis. I was able to help a lot of people with social media, either by helping them (or their managers) to understand social media (better) or by helping them regarding strategy, business cases or implementations.
For 2011 I hope I can even help more people and organisations with social media, since that is what I love to do, either by creating content (online), by presenting or by working with them directly in a project.
Just let me know if you need any help in 2011.
