Nearly every other day you get to read something about Facebook & Twitter. Here goes one more article!
For a change non-US users are contributing big time to these two internet giants. Recently Facebook opened their office in Hyderabad [photos], will Twitter follow? Not anytime soon.
With increase in internet penetration across the world, I guess these sites are able to attract a lot more users than from US. The following table is a tabular version of the graph I came across today.
|Total Users||500 m||106 m|
|People are aware||88%||87%|
|Update their status everyday||12%||52%|
|Access via mobile device||30%||37%|
|Follow a brand||40%||25%|
|Brand followers will purchase that specific brand||51%||67%|
|Users Located outside the US||70%||60%|
|Valuation||$41.2 b||$3.7 b|
With such valuations it is hardly a tweet, it is a loud ROAR!
