What happens in 24 hours of Social Media use?

24 hours

There are over 7.13 billion in the world today and every 24 hours 40% of these people go online to search, create, curate, learn and engage in social media. During this time an astounding 2.7 billion likes will take place on Facebook, where 1 in every 7 minutes online is spent. On LinkedIn 15.6 million searches will take place, on Slideshare 100 million page views, and on Google+ 5 billion uses of the +1 button.

Take a look at the infographic below to get a flavour of how frequently social media is now being used. Think about the impact beyond the Facebook likes and social use. Consider how these channels are now being used in professional contexts and why developing your professional online presence is increasingly more important.
