Many people out there still believe that social networking is a fad, and that it, like so many fads before, will slowly go the way of the dinosaur. However, many of the most recent statistics on social media and social networking would lead us to believe differently.
Erick Qualman of Search Engine Watch and Socialnomics has compiled a video of many of these statistics, and calls all of this the “Social Media Revolution.” He likens this Social Media Revolution to the Industrial Revolution, which changed the way the world works for good.
While it may not end up being social networking that shifts the world into the next great age, these statistics are fascinating. Social networking and its ilk will likely have one of the biggest influences in all that comes after for a long time to come.
