    I have to disagree. I do not believe Social Media generates almost double the leads of Google PPC and Direct Mail. I could right a whole blog post to prove it doe not but before I invest my time in a healthy discussion. I would like to know the source of this factoid. I wish it was true.

  2. Like Sam, I’d love to know your sources, but I’d also like to know if the infographic is available somewhere as a stand-alone JPG or PDF?

  3. Hi Sam, I totally agree with you on this one. I was equally amazed and shocked when I saw that. You need source? here you go It’s Hubspot. Let me know if you do a blog post proving its not a fact, would be more than happy to read that.

    Hi Harsh,
    Can you give me the source please of the third line of the twitterfacts. I couldn’t produce them of the sources you have given us. All I was able to find is 79% growth rate since 2012, not active users.
