Social Media Statistics

I was doing research on social media statistics one day at work when I came across this video on YouTube. It's from SocialMediaEnergy, and it presents a number of interesting and amazing stats on the current status of social media. Here are some of them:

  1. Adults spend 15+ hours a week on the internet. (I'm guilty because it's part of my job.)
  2. 2-3 new Twitter accounts are activated every second.
  3. Twitter averages 50 million tweets per day. (Around 3 of those come from me.)
  4. Wikipedia has more than 14 million articles written by 75,000 contributors in 260 languages. (I've read like 13 million already. Lol)
  5. The average online viewer watches 12.2 hours of online video each month. (Not me! *wink*)
  6. Facebook has over 350 million active users on a global basis -- a 40% increase in 6 months.
  7. 50% of active users log onto the site [Facebook] every day. (Just recently, this includes my mom.)
  8. The average user spends more than 55 minutes a day on Facebook. (Don't look at me.)
  9. 83% of all companies use Facebook.
  10. Social media has taken over pornography as the #1 activity on the web. (*whistling*)
Undoubtedly, social media is taking over the world, and it excites me to think that it hasn't come to its peak yet. It's continually expanding, and I can't wait to become a part of the next big thing.

They ended the video with a this bold statement: "Still think social media is a fad? Think again." Ditto.
