More interesting stuff on the web

Here’s some more interesting content I’ve found on the web recently:

Social Networking Grows 93%; Communication Becomes Entertainment
Social networking among US broadband users has grown an impressive 93% since 2006, and has increased the amount of time people spend communicating online 18%, to 32% of total online time, according to a new report from Netpop Research, LLC that delves into social networking trends and habits.

Younger US Demos 12% Less Likely to Tweet
The majority of Twitter users worldwide are age 35 or older, and young adults ages 18-24 make up only 10.6% of the Twitter population in the US and are less likely than the average user to Tweet, according to an analysis of February data by comScore blogger Sarah Radwanick.

Marketers’ Top Social Media: Twitter, blogs, LinkedIn, Facebook
An overwhelming majority (88%) of marketers in a recent survey say they are now using some form of social media to market their business, though 72% of those using it say they have only been at it a few months or less, according to a social media study by Michael Stelzner, sponsored by the upcoming Social Media Success Summit 2009.

Fast-Growing Facebook #1 in Most of Europe
Facebook logged 275 million global visitors in February 2009 and has catapulted to the #6-ranked online property worldwide, a 75% increase over the same period last year, according to data from comScore’s World Metrix service.
