Social Media Explanatory Diagrams and Statistics

Out of the plethora of simplified Web 2.0/Social Media Application diagrams that I’ve been “Digging” through lately and adding to my collected workshop material ; I really like the one I posted below. It provides a good breakdown (for beginners) of some of the more common applications out there along with their primary purpose.

I also like this diagram from Forrester Research, on the various segments (by usage behaviour and age) of social media.

Finally, the graph below illustrates specific usage among the general aggregate U.S. online population vs. U.S. youth (ages 12-21).   Canadian patterns are quite similar, although we have higher relative usage of social networks such as Facebook (when you look at % of overall population).

I figured I’d post these up for you, since by the time I get around to using them , there will likely be a whole slew of new ones that I will prefer. Let me know if any of you need something specific, I’ve got quite a hefty collection.

Do you have any favourites yourself? Let me know!

*Note to all Americans: the “ou” in the word “favourite” is intentional; that’s how we spell up here.

Cheers!
