Top Social Media Stats of 2013 [INFOGRAPHIC]

As 2013 comes to a close we are all reflecting on the past year. Its ups, downs, memorable events and so on and so forth. So just like anything else, the world of social media also had its share of news and changes that none of us could, even if we wanted to, ignore.

L.L. Bean upped its Pinterest game with its Woodland Creatures board and became the most followed board on Pinterest in 2013 with 4,689,706 followers. The selfie has made its mark this year with more than 35 million photos on Instagram tagged #selfie. Twitter is still blowing up thanks to the 231.7 million active users. They spend about 170 minutes each month on the network, about half posting tweets and half reading those tweets. And how could we forget, the most memorable moment of all, Snapchat declining acquisition offers of $4 billion from Facebook and Google?

Take a look at this infographic, courtesy of Sparefoot for more on a social media year in review. Some things may make you cringe (outrageous Facebook usage stats) and some might make you breathe a sigh of relief (growing popularity of infographics). Let us know what you think in the comments below and don't forget to like and share!

    I have a hard time believing the 40% of paying users on LinkedIn. During the growth hacker conference last year (available on Udemy), a guy from LinkedIn said that they reached 1% of paying users. So I doubt they increased it to 40% in a year or two. They give away one month for free so that I might have increased a bit though but I actually don't know anybody that pays for premium out of all of my friends or connections.

    The most useful stat there for marketers and people selling marketing services has to be the facebook stats.  The question of "should I be on facebook" unfortunately is still being asked in 2013 when really it should be "why shouldn't I be on facebook?".
