I found the following statistics regarding Social Media on the econsultancy.com blog. While these would be somewhat bizarre stats to bring up in a business meeting to prove the efficacy of social media, they are startling all the same. Read and enjoy.

* If Facebook were a country, it would be the fourth most populated place in the world. This means it easily beats the likes of Brazil, Russia and Japan in terms of size.*
* It took radio 38 years to reach 50 million listeners. Terrestrial TV took 13 years to reach 50 million users. The internet took four years to reach 50 million people... In less than nine months, Facebook added 100 million users.
* The top three people on Twitter (Ashton Kutcher, Ellen DeGeneres and Britney Spears) have more combined followers than the entire population of Austria.*
* According to Socialnomics, if you were paid $1 for every time an article was posted on Wikipedia, you would earn $156.23 per hour.

Wow.

156 articles per hour on wikipedia, no wonder it dominates. So if face book added 100 million in 9 months, what's next?

these were the seemingly useless facts from the econsultancy blog. The other facts were very promising in terms of the future of social media and hopefully social media marketing.
