YouTube Tops Facebook, Groupon, LinkedIn and Twitter In User Satisfaction


According to a study by Netpop Research, users of are more likely to recommend that site than users of , , , and other social media websites are likely to recommend those sites.

Using what is called the Net Promoter Score (NPS) to measure user satisfaction, Netpop Research found that YouTube is likely to be recommended by 50 percent of its users, followed by 36 percent of Facebook users, 33 percent of users, 30 percent of LinkedIn users, and only 11 percent of Twitter users.

NPS takes the percentage of customers who are Promoters and subtracts the percentage who are Detractors. Promoters (who score 9-10) are loyal enthusiasts who refer others, fueling growth, while Detractors (who score 0-6) are unhappy customers who can damage a brand and impede growth via negative word-of-mouth. Passives (who score 7-8) are satisfied but unenthusiastic customers who are vulnerable to competitive offerings.

The findings are from the Netpop Research survey conducted among 1,253 US broadband users age 13+, January 1-13, 2011.

Now, this doesn’t mean that more people use YouTube than Facebook. According to Compete, had 127,510,914 unique visitors from the U.S. in January 2011, had 111,794,719, had 27,985,892, had 16,439,724, and had 14,704,182.
