Social Media Statistics
I received an email over the weekend promoting social media monitoring and other things that I don’t really need. Included in the email was some amazing statistics on the size of social media. I’ve always been a fan of social media personally and professionally. It is staggering to think how many people are on Facebook now. (That 6 Degrees of Separation theory is proving itself right.)
|Facebook has over 1.3 billion monthly active users|
|6.5 million Twitter users|
|Nearly 315 million people on Linkedin|
|Over 50 million people use Foursquare/Swarm|
Another thing I learned from this – check your facts. I was quite surprised that Twitter only had 6.5 million users. With all of companies and TV shows utilizing Twitter, I was dumbfounded that they had such a small reach. A quick Google search pulls statistics in the range of 250 million active users.
