Social Media Counters

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 –
