  • Average consumer has 29 brand friends on social networking sites, up from just seven a year ago

and reported on:

  • 2,000 nationally representative respondents
  • 500 digital trendsetters, a group which represents 5% of the national population and ar e first adopters of technology and highly active in their online social behavior.
