We all know social networks dominate internet traffic, making headlines and generally causing media ruckus. These Facebooks, Twitters and Foursquares might seem huge, but are they really?
Jesse Thomas of interactive agency JESS3 designed a (literally) galactic-scaled infographic with globes representing the various social media platforms. (Did you know Skype users outnumber Facebook users by 90 million?)
More than that, ‘The GeoSocial Universe’ measures the level of engagement these social networks have with the mobile market, the ‘sun’ of the social media system with 4.6 billion devices.
So while Skype has more users than Facebook, not many use it on-the-go, compared to Foursquare, which is entirely dependent on mobile users.
