1.Over 50% of the world’s population is under 30-years-old

2.96% of them have joined a social network

3.Facebook tops Google for weekly traffic in the U.S.

4.Social Media has overtaken porn as the #1 activity on the Web

5.1 out of 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met via social media

7.Facebook added over 200 million users in less than a year

8.iPhone applications hit 1 billion in 9 months.
