Surveys, “news” and stats – be warned

October 15, 2009 at 6:22 PM Leave a comment

Caroline McCarthy has an online presence on cnet.com called “the social” and today’s post is a great reminder for us all:  don’t believe everything you read.

In this case, McCarthy compares two surveys analyzing deployment of social media by small business.  The surveys had very different conclusions.  So imagine yourself finding one survey, pondering the information as a small business owner and shortly after reading the conflicting survey.  We all know how statistics can be manipulated.  Don’t be swayed by the most recent stat social media gurus are touting.  Remember to do your homework.

It will pay to watch what is happening in your specific market and business segment rather than these trends.
