It’s been a fb and twitter kind of day…

6 08 2009

Astounding Internet day today! If your day started anything like mine, I’m talking under my breath about AT&T Uverse not loading properly. Facebook is acting strange and then twitter won’t even come up. Of course now we all know about twitter going down, but go to twitter to #whentwitterwasdown and see how many posts that are there and how quickly they are updating. In the time I looked around in it, a couple of minutes, there were an additional 250 and 315 more posts that I had to refresh to see! That rate tells us something about how many people are active on twitter.

Second amazement of the day was the Tech Crunch article by Erick Schonfeld. 340 M global uniques/77 M in US (1/4 of Americans).

Also from Erick’s article –

As much as many would like to dismiss social media, it is striking chords with quite a few of us. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below…
