Everybody’s favourite social network Facebook today officially declared it had reached 250 million users worldwide. Whats even more staggering is that it added 50 million new users in the last 3 months or 500,000 new users every day. Whats amazing is that Facebook isn’t the site with the fastest growth, that lies with Twitter.
Lets put this into context:
Number of years it took to gain 50 million users for other media.
- Radio – 38 years
- TV – 13 years
- The Internet – 4 years
- Ipod – 3 years
What does this mean to me?
- If you and your company are not on twitter already get on there and at a minimum secure your company names.
- If your designers have not made consideration of this media and don’t have it in the road-map they are too slow.
- If you think this is all about websites your wrong, Twitter and Facebook are very mobile phone friendly applications.
- If you don’t act now, it will be too late.
