Ever wonder how often someone does a blog post? How many new Facebook users there are every second? How much video is uploaded to YouTube? No? Well, from time to time I do.
Well, I need wonder no more. This chap, Gary Hayes, has produced a social media counter. Using numbers from public sources, he’s written a small web applet that uses those numbers to illustrate how much activity goes into things like blogs, online social networks, and virtual worlds.
I can’t embed the applet here, but it looks like this (showing the numbers for 30 minutes of activity). You can find the actual counting version here – http://www.personalizemedia.com/garys-social-media-count/.
