Socialnomics: the slap-in-the-face stats

Erik Qualman’s latest video in the Socialnomics series features jaw-dropping stats on the social media revolution.

To give you a taster:

  • Social media has overtaken porn as the number one activity online.
  • One in five couples meet online.
  • Three in five gay couples meet online.
  • If Facebook were a country, it would be the world’s third largest.
  • There are 1.5 million real farmers – and 80 million Farmville Farmers.
  • If Wikipedia were made into a book, it would take you 123 years to read it.
  • Babies in Egypt have been named “Facebook”.
Oh, and we love the Fat Boy Slim background music. Watch and be awed.
