Social Media has overtaken porn as the #1 one Internet activity & other interesting facts

Today’s FreeStyleFriday post asks the question:  How important is social media? Apparently very important – consider these facts:

  • Social Media has overtaken porn as the number one Internet activity
  • One out of eight couples who married in 2008 met via social media
  • Facebook has more than 400 million active users. 50% of our active users log on to Facebook in any given day
  • Twitter.com had 90.2 million unique visitors worldwide in May, up from 83.8 million in April and 37.3 million in May of last year.
  • Over 65 million Twitter posts are made each day

These numbers are taken from Does Social Media matter to law firms? Amazing Firms, Amazing Practices,  visited July 17, 2010 (http://bit.ly/9HDPaZ) and Pressroom, Facebook, visited July 26, 2010.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
