Every 60-Seconds, Many Things Happen in Social Media

Social Media 60-Seconds

In case you weren’t 100% completely aware that social media is a grouping of storms that rage with massive levels of activity every moment of every day, here’s an infographic to reiterate it.

Pinterest is the new hotness with a rapidly-increasing userbase. Now that it’s getting over a thousand visitors every minute, we should expect to see it continue to blossom (assuming it can get around its copyright woes).

Tagged is bringing together people through “social discovery” and with 3500 new friends connections per minute, the discovering of new people is thriving.

Facebook is becoming more than a networking tool – it’s the preferred communication tool of so many that messaging through Facebook is a more common activity than calling or texting to some.

Storm might not be powerful-enough of a metaphor to use. A better one might be to say we’re getting sucked into the maelstrom.

Thanks to Social Jumpstart for the graphic.

    I would liken social media more to a rapidly churning river. The immense volume of data overload is like a powerful current that can drown you if you don’t know how to swim and navigate it properly. Point taken though.

    There’s not doubt that social media is blowing up, especially with the advent of the smartphone. I found it interesting that YouTube dominated this list because even though it’s a social media channel, I don’t believe it’s actually as direct a channel as these other ones. You’re doing more spectating and commenting about the videos instead of directly socializing with with strangers/friends, etc. This infographic is a pretty cool milestone marker and I’d be interesting in taking a look again, say five or even just one year from now and she how everyone’s doing and who’s new or still on the list. Thanks for sharing this!
