Latest Social Networking Stats As of September 2012


Today, one social networking site isn’t enough for a person. Now, a single person can juggle between two or five social networking sites in a day. Why is that? Because these sites have different selling points that can be seen as a ‘need’ for others. Now if you think that updating a status on Facebook is enough, some people actually need to tweet and even take a picture on Instagram to share the experience.
