Social Networks: Global data

As my last blog entry about facebook user statistics in Finland has caused some interest, I would like to refer to data published recently concerning the global development of social networking platforms. Very impressive growth rates!

Yeah I heard something about 150 million users a couple of weeks ago.. that's just amazing. something like 2.5% of the world population is connected to this site.
in Switzerland or in Finland, one person each 5/6 has a Facebook account O_o'

Thanks for this post Tobi.

And this is just the beginning… in 90 days they want to crack the 200.000.000. Huge number!

That explains the term social media very well… we have always had social networks like friends, family and such, but since they are all digital and thus instantly accessible they have turned in a medium.
