Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest – Which Social Network Won 2012? | Social Media and the economy | Scoop.it

2012 was a huge year for social media.

Facebook’s IPO and Instagram buyout dominated the headlines. Twitter is noweverywhere, and celebrated the tail-end of the year by reaching 200 million active users. LinkedIn has strengthened its position as the premier business social network while shaking off Facebook’s share price nightmare to continue to trade near its stock peak. And Pinterest had one of the best twelve months of any social network, ever.

 

But which of these social behemoths experienced a year that they’re never going to forget?

This infographic takes a closer look at the winners and losers of social media in 2012.

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.
