PostSubject: How much are telcos losing on FB & Twitter?   Tue Dec 28, 2010 1:51 pm

Last Christmas, the trend started with people shifting
from sending out text messages on their phone to just using Facebook and
Twitter to greet friends and loved ones.

We estimated as much as Php50 million could have been lost to
Facebook just on Christmas eve.

This year, people have been using Facebook and Twitter way more than a
year ago and itís not just during Christmas or New Yearís day.

Counter-measures were made to offset that shift with telcos offering
unlimited access to Facebook and many other social networking sites (for
a daily flat rate between Php20 to Php25).

But the trend still remains ó people send less SMS and using social
networking sites like FB or Twitter as an alternative. How much the
telcos are losing from this shift is unknown but maybe we can do some
rough estimates.

Last time I checked, there are around 18 million accounts on Facebook
from the Philippines. If we can figure out how much less an average FB
user send text messages in favor of FB messages to greet people, that
could one way of extrapolating the figure.

So, how much less have you bee texting and using FB or Twitter
instead to send out greetings this holiday season?
