Social media is alive and kicking!

As Simple Minds put it, social media is alive and kicking.


On Techcrunch, Erick Schonfeld‘s comment on ComScore worldwide traffic stats from Sept. 2007 to Nov. 2008 is giving a good idea of social media’s rise.

If Facebook’s number of total unique visitors is always on the rise (not really surprising…), blogging plateforms like wordpress and Blogger are doing well. But more relevant in my opinion is the persistent presence of websites like Flickr, MySpace or Scribd (see Scribd stats for 2007-2008) in this top 20. Indeed, more people throughout the world are willing to share documents, pictures, videos, presentations (slideshare…) freely online, the web becoming a giant collaborative wiki.

This looks quite exciting isn’t it ? … and this wasn’t really pointed out in the 2009 web trends so far…
