Social Media ? Facebook and Twitter – That’s what you thought all it was, isn’t it ? Hell No !
In 2010, the internet saw some radical changes on social media, internet usage and the way content is being populated and exchanged online. Looking at the figures, you’d think – Damn! When did this really happen ?
The Middle East population is estimated at 212 million. This means that the penetration ratio of the Internet with respect to its population is 29.8% – the biggest ever recorded !
With a penetration ratio of 52.5%, its got an enviable internet population compared to other countries in the Middle East.
Which is seriously interesting and goes to answer those skeptics who claims that the internet is saturated. No. It is growing, and at a pace we’ve seen never before.
That’s quite a number. 88.8 Million websites out there. We would assume that one person will never finish browsing all the websites ever in his lifetime.
Do you have a blog, by the way ? If not, its high time you added on.
YouTube is an exclusive video site, and if you thought that’s a stat to go wow, check the next one.
So, it’s clearly not YouTube that’s the leader in videos.
When it comes to photos, Flickr is the leader. No other social media channel comes to even half as close as Flickr.
There are clearly a lot of applications other than FarmVille out there.
152 million blogs and 255 million websites. How many of them have you read so far ?
35 hours of video every minute. 2100 hours of video every hour. 50400 hours of video every day.
That includes all the instant messaging tools usage, like Google Talk, Yahoo messenger, Skype etc.
Which means 175 million people are involved in random talk and tweeting in 140 characters. Now, who’s denying ?
Imagine, if every year, 250 million people added up ?
Facebook has become truly a global phenomenon now. Isn’t it ?
Mobile applications, anyone ?
This is pretty much close to the rest of the world, but what’s more interesting is that the source is Facebook and YouTube.
That’s very less compared to Flickr, but its interesting to see Facebook eating up to other specialized social media channels like YouTube and Flickr with its content.
Clearly, after Facebook, Twitter is the most fast growing website on the internet today.
