Facebook Is World’s 3rd Largest Country: See for yourself

Today we have a impressive picture of social media that helps us see it’s global reach among people.  Thanks to consultant Bill Clontz who shared this infographic from Search Engine Journal.

This graphic says a lot.  The first thing that struck me was how steeply media use rates have grown across all age groups.  Our online activities play a bigger and bigger part in how we connect.  And in how others see us — what our potential employers and clients can discover is expanding more and more.

What do these curves tell you? I think that once people discover the power (thrill, satisfaction, usefulness) of reaching others regardless of the device or location, it spreads.  Once we start connecting online, even if the future favorite platform changes, I doubt we will ever look back.
