1, 2, 3, 4,000,000,000

If you’re not convinced by social media or fail to see what the fuss is about, check out these numbers, taken from a presentation by Craig Thomler.
•    2/3 of the global internet population visit social networks
•    Visiting social sites is the 4th most popular online activity – ahead of personal email
•    Time spent on social networks is growing at 3x the overall internet rate
•    There are 3,600,000,000 pictures on Flickr (about 1 photo for every 2 people on the plant)
•    Twitter grew by 1382% from Jan 2009 to Feb 2009
•    We spend 5,000,000,000 minutes on Facebook each day
•    If Facebook was a country, it would be the 8th most populated in the world

Social media websites are replacing traditional leisure outlets – TV, press and magazines. You can’t ignore the numbers, social media is big.
