In the video, “More than a passing trend part II,” by Karl Fisch, what mattered to me was the size of the social media. One example is that if Facebook became a country on its own, it would have the fourth largest population, behind the US. It took Facebook only nine months to gather 100 million users, and it took nine months for the Ipod application store to reach 1 billion users. Ashton Kutcher has more twitter followers that the population of Ireland, Norway, and Panama. YouTube is the second largest search engine with 100,000,000 videos. These facts go on and on about social media, which blows me away, I knew it was large but I didn’t realize it was that massive.
