With over 500 million users worldwide, Facebook continues to dominate the social networking world. Today, Facebook is available in 70 different languages with 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) being shared each month.
An average of 1 million new UK users sign up to the site each month with 50% of UK users logging in every day.
New reports show that people are also visiting social media sites more often and the time people spend on them is rapidly increasing. The average session time spent on a social network in January 2011 was 22 minutes.
Unsurprisingly, one in every eight people leaving a social network visits another one immediately after, something that is encouraged by the connections that exist between the networks.
