It is safe to say that social networking has gone mainstream and is here to stay. There are only 3 countries on the planet that have a higher population than Facebook has users which proves the overall popularity of social media. That being said, where is social networking heading?
Increased Usage and Popularity
According to Jake Hird’s post on 20+ mind blowing social media statistics, social media (including social networks and blogs) are the 4th most popular online activities online, which even beats personal email. 67% of global users visit member communities and 10% of all time spent on the internet is on social media sites.
Look for main-streamers to get more active in social media and branch out past Facebook to other social networking sites.
