Growth Of Social Networks Worldwide [Study]

eMarketer has just released the latest figures on social networks (Q1/2013): Facebook ist still #1, but is being challenged by its contenders.

The figures have been taken from GlobalWebIndex’s “Stream Social: Quarterly Social Platforms Update.” and show clearly, that a lot has happened behind Facebook: quite a few second-place contenders are fighting for the spot behind the leader, with Google+ out front at 26% of internet users. Google+ registered a growth in their active users base (using the service at least once in the past month) 33% between Q2 2012 and Q1 2013. While Facebook has seen its total number of active users increase by 35% between Q2 2012 and Q1 2013, Twitter is currently the fastest-growing social platform in the world, with a 44% growth in the same period.
