Early last year we learned that one hour of YouTube is uploaded every second. It was a bracing reminder of just how many people are spending their time online simultaneously.
Created by rewards site Qmee, the infographic "Online In 60 Seconds" is a pie chart that shows off the sheer amount of online activity that takes place every single minute. The amount of YouTube videos uploaded has already increased from January 2012's 60 hours per minute to 72. Additionally, over 1.8 million things are liked on Facebook, and 278 thousand bon mots tweeted. Not depicted in the chart: the amount of work that is going undone while all of these items are being viewed.
Almost everyone has an account on at least one of the major social networks on the Internet either Facebook, Twitter, Google +, or Pinterest. Some people like me have accounts on all four social networks and use the different social networks for different reasons. A main reason we use social networks is to engage with other people either with our friends and family, or anyone who has our same interests.
Here are some things to think about when you are writing a post for your social network.
