Video – Overwhelming Proof that Social Media Has Taken Over

 

Here is a powerful video on YouTube which shows the blinding growth of social media and it states, without a doubt, social media is here to stay while providing glimpses of the future where social media will dictate everything we see online:

Some great takeaway stats:

  • If Facebook were a country it would be the 3rd largest in the world
  • Facebook tops Google for weekly traffic in the USA
  • Years to reach 50 million users via Radio was 38… the Internet = 4 years, the iPod = 3 years…. yet Facebook grew to 200 million users in less than a year!

A big thanks to Sheila Beal of Go Visit Hawaii for highlighting this video on Facebook – yeah how ironic I found it there :-)

    Hey Ross!

    Great post on this video. It does make you realize just where we have been, and of course, where we are heading. How do you see SEO and Social integrating in the months/years to come like Facebook and Bing have?

    Hey Matt :-) thanks for the comment. “How do you see SEO and Social integrating in the months/years to come like Facebook and Bing have?” That is a question I think I will reserve for SEO 101 – kind of a lengthy answer. Thanks!
