The question is are we moving so fast and processing so much that this is the pace of the social media shelf life? Here are some stats demonstrating the growth, expansion, and popularity of social media networks and communities.
- One out of every four people online visit social-networking sites and about half of social networkers visit social-networks sites on a daily basis. (Consumer Internet Barometer)
- 75% of Internet users participate in some form of social media, up from 56% in 2007. (Forrester)
- A typical social networker connects weekly with an average of 18 people one-to-one, and 100 people one-to-many. (NetPop Research)
