Australia loves Social Networking!

Absolutely undeniably incredible!  I had no idea so many Australians were online, and social networking to boot! First of all, Australia comes in  9th place for the highest internet penetration rate per country. 80.1% of the population!

(the funniest trend is that all the countries in first to eight place are really cold countries!)

Second of all, the great things to learn are;

  1. 71.5% of Australia’s UVs are on Social Networks at some point
  2. 8,855,990 UVs  are Social Networking in Australia
  3. Facebook: 6,102,000 eyeballs
  4. Twitter: 800,000
  5. 95.1% of UVs have visited a wordpress site.

How many visited Google - 10,00,000 a  month on average. So seriously, this sounds like a Willie Sutton moment - go to where the money - i mean -customers are!!

Twitter grew 6,122%^ year on year! That is phenomenal. Google was growing at 400% (on the stock exchange) at one point, and rumour has it realestate.com.au grew at 4000% at one stage. Will it continue to grow? Absolutely it will, and it will balance out? And the tools to find relevance among all this information will only get better.
