Found via RICG, Comscore says that users of social media outspend non-users. It breaks down like this:

  • Facebook members: $67 online spend (average) per quarter
  • Non Facebook visitors: $27
  • Twitter users: $70-75, depending on how much they use it (more use = more spend)
  • Average spend across entire internet users: $50

Figures are in US$, of course, but highlight the need to consider social networking sites and channels when looking at where to make advertising and marketing efforts pay off.

    It would be interesting to know why they outspend non users.
