There’s a brilliant video doing the rounds, (note: to support a book launch http://socialnomics.net/ [not a client]), which looks at how social media is changing the way we live, in facts and figures:
- social media overtaking porn as the biggest activity on the net
- by 2010, Generation Y will overtake the babyboomer generation in terms of population; and 96% of Gen Y are on a social network
- one in eight couples married last year in the States met through a social network
- and finally, that the rise of social networks has les Boston College to stop giving new joiners email addresses, as email is considered passe.
a brilliant, fascinating video – lots of great facts, and well worth checking out
