Social Media Graphics

The social media space is growing so fast it is hard to keep track of the latest statistics, even for us who are working from the trenches on a daily basis. Take a look at this latest graph of Twitter’s growth for example:

What’s interesting about this particular piece of data is that it focuses on usage, rather than the number of members – which can be a misleading statistic. After all, members are pretty useless unless they actually actively use a service or platform like Twitter.

We have also recently noticed an influx of infographics into our Twitter streams, e-mail inboxes and Google Buzz accounts. They range from pretty useful to completely useless, but extremely funny.

To help you keep track of all the latest data, graphics and statistics about social media I would like to point you in the direction of this Posterous blog, which is aptly named “Social Media Graphics” – it’s exactly what it says on the tin, a blog filled with the latest graphics about social media.

Graphics like these tend to be great at quickly giving an insight into data and providing you with a snapshot without having to delve deeply into the data yourself. They are excellent for showing the growth of this space and help to convince clients how important it is to be active within this arena.

The blog provides great inspiration and makes for excellent weekend reading!
