Checked out some numbers this morning and these are absolutely mind boggling;
Twitter; has now passed 1,5 BILLION tweats - check out this live ticker
YouTube; 15 hours of video published up into it every minute of every day + 100 million viewers per month only in the USA + 40% marketshare of all video watched online
Facebook; 200 MILLION registered users - reached 8 months after hitting 100 million
iPhone app store; more than 1 BILLION apps downloaded within 9 months of launching the app appstore... 3 months ago they were at 500 million
What does all this mean? Well, end user generated content is where it's all at folks... Interesting times!
I love these two quotes;
Amara's Law : "We tend to overestimate the effect of technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run"
William Gibson : "The future is already here...just unevenly distrubuted"
