Social Media Companies: A Cheat Sheet [INFOGRAPHIC]


See on Scoop.itten Hagen on Social Media

So you’re new to this whole social media thing. Maybe you’re savvy enough to know your Facebook from your Twitter, your Pinterest from your Spotify. But what about Tagged? Xing? Futubra? Where do they fit into the social media ecosystem?

 

Just learning their names is enough to make your head spin, let alone how large they are or what kind of numbers they’re pulling down.

 

Never fear. Mashable has got you covered.

 

This comprehensive infographic whipped up by social media strategist firm Hasai, serves both as a cheat sheet for the newbies and a scorecard for old hands; there’s sure to be a stat that surprises even the most jaded social guru.

 

Did you know Club Penguin has more employees than Twitter? That Spotify has larger revenues than Tagged, which in turn has more users than Twitter? That Pinterest may be a hot property, but Foursquare still has more users? (All revenue figures are in U.S. dollars, by the way.)

 

Facebook remains at the top of the social media tree, of course. But as Thursday’s trending Twitter topic, “RIP Facebook,” suggested, that can’t last forever. So who is best positioned to replace them? Take a look at the chart, and let us know in the comments what you think.
