Back in February, I posted about the value of Facebook and Twitter. This was at a time where a big investment from Goldman Sachs had put them at around the $50 billion mark. Back then, with just (!) 600 million users, the value of each user was about $83. The current figure places the […]
Here’s a beautiful infographic that shows infographic use.
It’s not particularly accurate, but it isn’t meant to be. Like most infographics that you’ll see, it is there to tell a story and to bend the facts a little bit to present some information in a particular way.

According to Search Engine Land, around a billion people around the world use Google each month, but so far, the number of those who’ve taken the steps to join Google+ are relatively small. Depending on who you talk to, membership is somewhere between 40 and 80 million right now. It’s not exactly small beans, but […]
With the kind of fanfare and reaction that you’d expect, businesses can finally add branded entity pages to Google+.

Apologies if you’ve already seen this one, but it’s new to me. I logged into Facebook this morning and saw something new. At the top of my news feed, a group of posts had been linked together by subject:
It appears that the posts have been grouped into a thread due to the common use […]
…Facebook announced that they had hit 750 million users including roughly half the UK population.
…Twitter told the world that they had hit 200 million users with almost half a million new accounts each day.
…While it was invitation only, Google+ clocked up more than 20 million users in about 3 […]
I’ve had a number of conversations with various people at different digital agencies where there is still a struggle about defining a social media product for their clients.
