Worldwide Use of Social Media

We researched the global utilization of social media - specifically looking at Facebook, Linked-In and Twitter, since the WTC is active on those sites and has international connections on all three. Here are some findings as of August 2010:
  • LinkedIn has 70 million members in over 200 countries
  • 50% of LinkedIn users are outside the US
  • Over 500 million Facebook users
  • 70% of Facebook users are outside the US
  • Over 60% of registered Twitter accounts are outside the US
