Social networking statistics show that the use of social media is ever-increasing and doesn’t seem to be slowing any time soon.

Social networking statistics are scary reminders of just how much time many of us spend using various social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. These figures are continually increasing year-on-year and businesses, organisations, and most importantly advertisers are following along with their own increasingly adaptive promotional campaigns to take advantage of the influx of new users on a regular basis.

Over 70% of internet users use at least one form of social media, social network, or social communication platform. For social networking statistics that’s a terrifying amount of people for such a wide demographic. Advertisers in particular are fighting over the highest potential valued domains, sites, and advertising slots on the biggest websites – things will only get more competitive as usage increases.

Twitter is one of the fastest-growing, most active, highest potential social networks suitable for business. Data from Twitter and the Huffington Post indicates that there’s over 9,000 tweets per second around the world and almost half of those come from mobile users alone – more indication of the ever-increasing world of mobile technology that has taken most of the western world by storm.

More people aged 18-34 in the United States use YouTube than any single TV network. Using video to promote your business, services, and products used to be hugely expensive thanks to the massive prices that TV networks charged for tiny time slots. But now with the ability to produce ads specifically for YouTube or even create videos to share – prices can be miniscule for much wider exposure.
