There are countless social media facts spinning around the tubes, but trying to make sense of them can be a struggle. We’ve contextualised them into irrelevant nuggets of information to make them even less coherent to understand.
1/ There are the same amount of videos watched online each month as there are stars in the galaxy.
2/ Facebook now has above 900 million users, over double the number of dogs in the world.
3/ More iPhones are sold every minute than people are born.
4/ Bloggers smash out a casual 2 million posts a day, enough for each American prisoner.
5/ 294 billion emails are sent every day. That’s an email for each dollar spent on Titanic.
6/ A staggering 70% of businesses ignore Twitter complaints, the same percentage of Americans that are overweight.
7/ On average, around 15 minutes of each internet user’s day are spent watching porn, around half the entire lifespan of a mayfly.
8/ There will be over one billion smart phones out there by 2015, roughly the population of Africa.
9/ There are over 175 million tweets created every day, more than the number of copies of the Twilight series sold so far.
10/ Two-thirds of people now have a social network profile of some sort, the same percentage of people that don’t know what QR codes are (presumably not the same people!).
11/ There have been over 10 billion app downloads from the Android Store, less than $3000USD worth if each cost a Zimbawean dollar.
12/ One million accounts are added to Twitter every day, the same number of pixels in a 1024×800 screen.
13/ Half of Pinterest users have kids and the average user earns a household income of over $100k, the same figure a couple paid to spend the day with Tim Tebow
14/ Twitter is expected to generate $259 million in ad revenue this year, also the estimated valuation of David Beckham’s LA Galaxy contract.
15/ Twitter has over 500 million registered users, the same amount of people that were on the earth during Elizabeth I’s reign.
