  1. Hi Paul,

    I do believe in this statistics because I’ve also heard social networking will be greatly emphasized with marketing strategies which appear to be bigger this year. Twitter and Facebook will really come a long way!

    Thanks for the figures.

  2. This has to be a great day for social media guys. Over passing SEO in importance has been a long time in the making. All I can say is good show and It really does make sense I enjoy the Social media experience hundreds of times better than SEO.

  3. What I’d like to know is the growth percentage by year of each one… social media has to be growing exponentially…
