Hi "friend", considering my data was a numerical quantity in the first place I'm not sure I need to "quantify" it. I was also joking around, but if what you're trying to ask for is a reliable source then this Burson-Marsteller slideshow should suffice. Obviously it says "almost one in seven..." but, like the link you provided, the data is dated and based on estimates that have no doubt been exceeded.
Thanks for your reply.
Melonie your article may have intended to be speculative but there was never 'a time when MySpace was almost as ubiquitous to social media as Facebook is now.' In 2012, one in seven people in the world have a Facebook account. In 2008 (Myspace's zenith) I'd say the best Myspace could claim would be one in seven emos.
