The Growth of Social Media

For those of you who haven't seen this yet, it's a great infographic on the growth of Social Media. The study by Search Engine Journal has found that half of all American adults are now on social networks. Out of that half, nearly two-thirds use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Other neat facts:

  • 1/4 Americans watch a video online every day
  • 53% of employers research candidates on social networks. 
  • 43% of companies use blogs for marketing, 71% are on Facebook, and 59% are on Twitter.
