Every year, my friend Erik Qualman updates his phenomenal Socialnomics video with the most current social media facts and figures. It’s always astounding to see Erik’s work – and the numbers are fairly mind blowing as well.
A few statistics that stuck out from the latest update:
-Each day 20% of Google searches have never been searched before (Think about that for a second. We like to think we know everything. Yet search shows a different story.)
-92% of children in the U.S. have a digital footprint/shadow (the focus of Erik’s latest book, Digital Leader)
-72 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube every minute
-90% of people trust online recommendations from friends or people they know
