The social media evolution

I’m sure you won’t have failed to notice the growing use of social media in recent years, not just by consumers but also by businesses.

But let’s put its evolution into context: one of the biggest social media networks, Twitter is currently seeing users send 200 million tweets per day – staggering when you compare this figure to that of 2009, when users sent a mere two million tweets a day. This demonstrates the phenomenal speed at which social media platforms are expanding.
