I found this fascinating quote today:
I feel that this is an ingenious method used by Sony to get people talking and sharing about their product by lampooning the ways people use social media as a whole. A fresh idea which is even more riveting due to the way they followed through the whole campaign.omgzam.com, Online Media Gazette, Mar 2010

A new blog post cum stats released by Twitter shows that their users now send out more than 50 million non-spam messages daily. If broken down further, that number is around 600 tweets per second.
In addition to that, a separate tweet by Twitter’s new VP of Communications revealed that approximately 83 tweets per second or 20% contain product or brand references. Here are some other interesting numbers and an official chart.
“Tweet deliveries are a much higher number because once created, tweets must be delivered to multiple followers. Then there’s search and so many other ways to measure and understand growth across this information network.
“Tweets per day is just one number to think about. We’ll make time to share more information so please stay tuned.”
Some of the highlights from Twitter’s blog post:
– In 2007, 5,000 tweets were sent out daily
– By 2008, that number grew to 300,000
– By 2009, it grew to 2.5 million tweets sent out daily
– Tweet growth shot up by 1,400% in 2009, reaching 35 million tweets per day by the end of the year
What do you think of Twitter’s massive growth compared to Facebook’s growth? Drop us a comment!
It has been 6 years since Facebook was launched; February 4, 2004. And during that time, they have enjoyed tremendous growth since the beginning. Currently, in their sixth year, Facebook announced that they have now more than 400 million people in their user base as part of their birthday celebration.
This number has since more than doubled from the previous year where their user base was only recording 150 million active users. The numbers are a testament that 2009 is the best year for Facebook yet. On top of that, Facebook has also overtaken Yahoo as second most popular website.
Here’s an infographic released by Pingdom to visualize how Facebook became the social networking juggernaut.

A recent report released by a Paris-based web intelligence firm Semiocast revealed that half of messages shared on Twitter are not in English, in a study of 2.8 million tweets. The most prominent Asian languages used to communicate on Twitter are Japanese and Malay. The analysis ranks English top while Japanese, Portuguese, Malay and Spanish followed suit amongst the 41 languages found.
The study was conducted on tweets sent out over a period of 3 days, from February 8 to February 10, 2010 to determine Twitter’s most used language ranking. Through the analysis tools that Semiocast has, they managed to identify the languages used in short messages among 41 languages in the major writing systems.
A graph from the report represents the data gathered by Semiocast:
Even though English is still the most used language on Twitter, this is a decline from the two-third share they had in the first half of 2009. Probably, in the future, English’s share would drop even further as the dominant language on Twitter as the growth from non-English speaking countries picks up.
Japanese is a clear second with 14% of tweets which is a testament to Twitter’s popularity in Japan and with that, confirms Japan as the first milestone of Twitter’s international development.
The number of Malay tweets reaching 6% is however not surprising as the research combines both the Bahasa languages in Indonesia and Malaysia together. This meant that about 3 million messages are exchanged in Malay-related languages daily on Twitter.

Self-promotion is always harder, somehow, than the work we agencies strive to do for our clients.
For all of the expertise, experience, and creativity we bring to bear to solve our clients’ deepest business and communications challenges, we often find ourselves sitting in our own internal brainstorms, staring blankly at a whiteboard. Befuddled.
Believe me, I was there.
Part of the trouble arises in the fact that agency websites are, truthfully, a pretty uninspiring lot. At best, they tend to reflect an agency’s recent work (after all, it’s all about the work), and if we’re lucky, they also provide some nugget of insight into the underlying mentality and approach of the agency as a whole.

I’ve been disengaged from socialized networks somewhat and deep diving into some new developments in .NET code recently like WebFormsMVP, IoC, and an OODB(db4o). So much to keep up on. Also I’m applying the ITIL strategy info from my recent blogs to a real case study of service management. It’s important to me to do first, and talk later. But being a teacher, I’m paid to talk and it’s a luxury to be able to work out the theory into reality. More soon…
