Social Media Explosion!? How does it look like? I’ll show you in one single post!

Web-savvy geeks talk about social media all the time and I’m pretty sure that you have come across articles mentioning social media explosions before and I doubt that this is the first time you heard about it. Most explosions can be visualized. Now, if we can visualize the much talked about social media explosions, have you ever wondered how it would look like?

Social Media Explosion!? How does it look like? I’ll show you in one single post!

There you are, folks. An example of a Social Media Explosion! I told you that I can show it on single post. :)

Amazing, huh!? said that the above counter is a real-time application but I beg to disagree. Those figures shown in the above Flash application do not reflect reality as we know it; those figures were based upon a set of predetermined constants. Gary Hayes, the brain behind the above amazing app said that those figures were based upon old data collected either monthly or yearly by Web 2.0 giants such as YouTube, Technorati, comScore, Yahoo etc.

Even though Gary’s Social Media counter is not a real-time application that can help us monitor the growth of Social Media, his application is possibly the closest we have to the real thing. My hats off to Gary, he has done a wonderful job! :)

By the way, are you interested in becoming a Certified Social Media Expert? You can become one pretty soon! ;)
