Exponential Growth in Social Media, or is it “Media”

The statistics in this presentation on social are staggering. Membership and interaction on sites such as Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter are doubling every year. One of the most shocking stats: Users spent 500 billion minutes on Facebook in the past year, up from 150 billion the year before. Then you read about how 1 of 6 marriages started in online media and how ONE THIRD of women 18-34 check Facebook when they first wake up (even before using the bathroom). Outrageous. The purpose of the presentation is to explain that social media is no longer a category of its own, now it’s just media. And it’s wrapped up in everything we do.
