Tracking the Growth of Social Media [#Infographic]

See on Scoop.itten Hagen on Social Media

In the past five years social media has grown exponentially. Though both Facebook and Google+ have more than a billion registered users, Twitter beats out both networks in terms of growth, with a 44% increase in its user base from 2012 to 2013.

Laurens ten Hagen‘s insight:


Google+’s high numbers come in part from Google integrating one login across multiple services, including Google+ and Gmail. This approach may impact growth numbers even more in the future. Take the new YouTube comments powered by Google+ for example. While YouTube is not featured as a social network in this infographic, its usage numbers are noteworthy; the site states that it sees 1 billion unique visitors each month. It remains to be seen if and how Google+ comments on YouTube will influence the usage stats of Google+.
