How to run a small social network site for your friends
Since August 2018 I have run a social network site called Friend Camp for about 50 of my friends. I think Friend Camp is a really nice place, and my friends seem to agree that it has enriched our lives. I'd like to see more places like Friend Camp on the internet, and this document is my attempt to provide some practical guidance as to how you might run a social network site like this.

Friend Camp is an intentionally small social network so the home page doesn't look like much if you don't have a login. You can read some of our policies if you like.

Painful silence.

Here are some strategies to try when your mind is a blank.

The Ultimate List: 300+ Social Media Statistics
It's evident that the evolution of social media has a clear impact on marketing. However, a major issue is that too much misinformation and propaganda exists about social media adoption, usage and its business applications. While we have written at length about social media and inbound marketing on this blog for the past several years, we are also huge fans of data here at HubSpot. This post is a homage to all of the awesome data that exists on the web about social media, though is by no means even close to all of it.
