The World of Social Media 2014: Statistics, Facts & Figures

The World of Social Media 2014: Statistics, Facts & Figures | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

It’s been a big year for the world, and it’s been a big year for social media.

 

The World Cup, Sochi Olympics, iPhone 6 announcement, death of Robin Williams and missing Malaysia Flight 370 were huge on Twitter, Facebook and, well, everywhere that had any kind of share button.

 

Social media today is increasingly used as a way to rally communities around common causes to inspire (and sometimes try to force) change.

 

This year, everything from the Ukrainian Crisis to the Ferguson jury decision has triggered enormous social and global conversation, something that just wasn’t possible even a decade ago.

malek's curator insight, December 19, 8:49 AM

Support meaningful interactions:  the number one reason why social media is thriving on a narrow scale.

Couples talk to others about their wedding questions, dilemmas and options to get feedback. Having extra opinions outside of immediate family and friends is a good avenue for couples that don’t necessarily want to share all of the details of their day in advance. Couples like to post their speeches, pictures and ideas, or weigh in with their opinions on other members’ weddings.

The Evolution of Learning Technologies

Human beings have always been seekers of knowledge. The minute we discover something new, we want to share it with others and move onto the next achievement. Since the beginning of recorded history (and probably before) we have always strived to discover the mysteries of the planet, of Earth and of ourselves. How has learning evolved over the course of human history and what might the future hold for us?
