Blog #2: Some findings about Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest

Interesting findings about Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest

Nowadays, we have access to many online services and even sometimes we are not able to know about all of them well. For example, I explored within this course many new tools such as Pinterest, Storify, Reddit, Amazon Mechanical Turk and so on.
In this blog I would like to present some statistical data & interesting info about some of them.
According to Facebook’s reports (3rd quarter 2013):
·   Daily active users were 728 million on average for September 2013, an increase of 25% year-over-year.
·   Monthly active users were 1.19 billion as of September 30, 2013, an increase of 18% year-over-year.
However, eMarketer released an analysis of Facebook's audience, and it turns out more than 10% of Facebook's reported monthly users are not human. Over 100 million active Facebook users are pets, objects or brands. eMarketer found that only 889.3 million of those users were humans.
