The Social Media Revolution in Numbers

Is social media a fad? Or the biggest shift since the Industrial Revolution? Do you like what social media says about your brand? More importantly — Are You Ready?

Socialnomics runs the numbers in this entertaining animation about the social media “revolution”. For example, how many years did it take radio, television, the Internet, the iPOD, and Facebook to reach 50 million users, respectively? The answer may (or may not) surprise you.

The statistics in the video below are based on the book Socialnomics: How Social Media Transforms the Way We Live and Do Business by Erik Qualman.

I’m not convinced that email is passé for the Millennials.

Did any of the data in this video surprise you? Do you disagree with any of the statistics and information presented? Do you believe that social media is a fad, or is it here to stay?
