“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media, the question is how well we do it,” says Erik Qualman, the man behind Socialnomics has released another video that I came across while perusing the social media section of Mashable. It has some pretty crazy statistics about social media.
One of the sadder facts I took from the video is that Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears have more Twitter followers than the entire populations of Sweden, Israel, Greece, Chile, North Korea and Australia. That to me is slightly upsetting. That those three people hold that much influence. But there are quite a few interesting facts, like that 3 of every 5 gay couples meet online, online gamers will buy more than 6 billion in virtual goods by 2013 and that the Ford Explorer Launch on Facebook generated more traffic than a Super Bowl ad. Check out the video below, try not to be inspired and awestruck by the Lion King-esque singing and drumming. SIMBA!!
