Twitter may be the top social networking buzz word these days, but if your business is looking to make an investment to reach potential customers through the medium some new, just released figures may make you think twice
Currently, more than 60 percent of Twitter users fail to return the following month, or in other words, Twitter’s audience retention rate, or the percentage of a given month’s users who come back the following month, is currently about 40 percent. The research was conducted by Nielsen Wire.
As a way to compare, both Facebook and MySpace show a user loyalty rate of around 60%.
