It is not surprising how many more Facebook updates occur every minute over Twitter, but it is surprising how big networks like tumblr and Scribd have grown to be. It can be intimidating to anyone new to social networking or blogging as the sheer volume is phenomenally large, but there is still a lot of room for growth, especially in the real estate blogging and social networking arena. For those frequently contributing, it is no surprise that the growth has not his a plateau as we foresee some networks will in coming years as a natural part of any business cycle.

Tell us in the comments which of the statistics surprise you the most and the least!

    Thank you very much for that amazing graph. As a technology provider for the real estate industry, it is sometimes very hard to convince Realtors of the reality happening around them in cyberspace. Infographics like these really tell the story and lets them see things with more perspective.

    Found this ourselves a few days ago as well. It would be interesting to see a nice infographic video on the state of the housing market and the traditional Realtor mindset vs. the online gig.

    Yikes! My head is ready to explode. I think I'll just stand out in front of my office and say hi to people when they walk by. Call me old fashioned!
