Many of us may not realise that so many Malaysian are using social Medias like Face book, Twitter, Blogs etc.

The Star May 29 10 gave us the following information:

.1 There are almost 6 million face book users in Malaysia (out of a population of 28 million) or 20% of the population. It is not known how of this users are small business.

.2 1 million Twitters. Believe this or not.

.3 7 million blogs. Hard to believe this.

.4 65 % of Malaysian used the internet. This is 18 million users .

.5 In Malaysia only 1 to 10 % of the advertising expenditure is spent on line. 1% has been quoted but some analyst said it could be about 10% (if properties advertisement are included).

.6 60% of the best known brand in Malaysia is already using social media (face book, twitter, and YouTube).

.7 Blogs: Air Asia has a blog ‘“Just Plane Thoughts “

.8 Twitters –check Astro’s

.9 Most visited sites in Malaysia are:
Maybank2u.com, Mudah.my, Malaysiakini.com, AirAsia.com—A bank, an auction site, a newspaper and an budget Air line .

Do you small business has a presence in Face Book, Twitter or a Blog?

If you are a small business in East Malaysia or Brunei, do you have a presence in FaceBook, Twitter or a blog? How effective are they in helping to promote your business? How did you use them?

likewise if you the small business in East Malaysia and Brunei has a blog, Face Book and Twitter address, let me know and I would use this media to promote them for you . FOC, of course.

I would be happy to hear your thoughts.
