Netflix Now the Largest Source of Downstream Traffic

According to a recent Sandvine report Netflix video streaming has become the largest source of downstream traffic, accounting for 29.7 percent of all peak downstream traffic, an increase of 8.7 percent from last fall.

Video streaming accounted for 49 percent of downstream traffic in March, compared with 19 percent for file sharing, and 17 percent for Web browsing. Just last fall web video accounted for 37 percent of downstream traffic.

Group Buying and Successful Social Media for Business

Every company is feeling the pressure to be active in social media. However, sometimes it can be hard to see exactly how all this twittering and facebooking translates to more business.

Robert Ball of the The Huffington Post says to start with group buying. “If properly structured and executed, group buying can produce such a campaign and represents a huge social media breakthrough for lead generation and customer acquisition. It’s not just an online coupon, but can be one of the key elements to a social media strategy that drives customer acquisition, revenues, has measurable costs, and most importantly, very measurable outcome.”

Groupon currently has over 30 million subscribers on their opt-in list. If done properly, group buying can easily become the most powerful marketing technique ever invented.
