What Social Media Sites Would Look Like If They Were In High School [Infographic]
Posted on November 16th 2012
It's no secret that in today's society, we post all about our lives through social networking. So in turn, whatever it is you're posting about; be it status updates, photos, or videos, these posts are describing who you are in a nutshell. With websites like the famous Facebook, video sites such as YouTube, and photo apps such as Instagram, it's no wonder why people will start putting you into certain cliques, kind of like high school.
Facebook being the "quarterback" of the social networking field, 48% of young American's say they find out about news through Facebook. Facebook bought out the popular Instagram app and now allows you to post your photos directly to Facebook from the application. If you have a Pinterest account, it is also connected to the popular social networking site and allows your friends to see what you're pinning. But be careful what you post, because in 2012, 52% of students reported being cyberbullied via Facebook.
While you have the app dedicated to photos and the website dedicated to videos, it's only fair you have a social networking site dedicated to nothing but status updates. This is where Twitter comes in as the chatty cathy. However, with the number of people using Twitter, 71% of tweets are ignored and only 23% of tweets get a reply. The average twitter user has tweeted 307 times, which is a total of 163 billion tweets since the dawning of Twitter.
