GLOBAL SOCIAL MEDIA STATS

I was just checking the latest Global Social Media Stats published by hootsuite and I thought I would share them with you.

Credit to hootsuite for the content.


After reading the stats it prompted me to update a recent slide I blogged showing the Evolution of Social Media.

Here is the updated slide.


The slide now shows 2.8 billion people using Social Media of which 2.6 billion people use Mobile Social Media as published by hootsuite.

This published increase in Social Media adoption is showing a +30% increase from the year before.

Social Media is fast becoming the "preferred go-to first choice" of News Feeds and this is presenting Mainstream News with a colossal challenge.

As we all know Fake News is an Epidemic and has been embedded in the fabric of Society, more so since the mid 1980's.

However, things are about to CHANGE..!!

With the advent of the Decentralised Distributed Digital Ledger Technology (Blockchain) which is set to be widely applied to Social Media, previous events no matter how horrific and disturbing will be revisited on the Blockchain with the inevitable outcome of unlocking the secrets of previously reported event.

This unlocking of lies, deception and fraudulent reporting of passed News Events is set to shake humanity to its core, leaving some people having to deal with facing up to a devastating reality of the REAL TRUTH..!!

STEEMIT is positioned perfectly for this new Global Social Media Revolution that is about to hit the Industry like a tsunami.

It is about time that the REAL TRUTH is unlocked and the party is about to begin..!!


Thanks again for reading.

A lot of people want "popular" and "quantity" of users, they don't care about quality truth, and fail to recognize its importance on the platform.

I could not agree more. I would much rather have 1,000 experts in their own field than 100,000 idiots. It's all about quality and if Steemit attracted the "best of the best" in all fields then the platform would be a force to be reckoned with and one that would be the envy of its rivals. Thanks for the support. Stephen

woa a LOT
