Things are busy in the office as we wrap up for our Holiday Break, so blogging has been light. Here’s a some interesting happens not thoroughly covered elsewhere in the blogosphere:
After doing an extensive amount of research on blogs, B&M began to look closer at female/mom bloggers. This was triggered by seeing that one of the Technorati Top 100 bloggers was a mommy-blogger. The term they’ve come up with is ‘mom-fluentials’.
Mom-fliuentials are a subset of E-fluentials. Their research has shown that moms are approached for advice and often give purchasing opinions. They find that when a mom-fluential does give advice it is followed. Mom-fluentials will give an average of 13 positive recommendations per week.
Social networkers are moving away from traditional media and are increasingly consulting peers for information and recommendations, according to a recent Compete Inc. study. The study shows that, when it comes to purchase decisions, online “socialites” are influenced more by peers and colleagues than any other source.
