Moms’ Favorite Social Networks & Blogs [CHART]


Mothers are tuned into a variety of social media, but Facebook is chief among them, details Nielsen in a May 2012 blog post. In fact, almost 3 in 4 mothers (27.9 million) who went online from a home computer in March visited Facebook, while roughly one-quarter visited Blogger, making them 27% more likely than the US average to visit the blogging platform. Yet despite their preference for Facebook, many Millennial mothers (born between 1977 and 1994) have a love/hate relationship with the social network, according to May 2012 survey results from Meredith’s Parents Network. For example, on the one hand, 57% of this group feel that it is a waste of their time, while on the other hand, 89% describe their time with the site as “me time.” And while the Nielsen findings indicate that mothers are 38% more likely to become a fan or follow a brand online, 55% of Millennial mothers say they have de-friended companies on Facebook, citing too many messages and ads as their main reason.
