You may have noticed that DMR has been a bit quiet lately. I took a very overdue vacation in the mountains of New Hampshire and had access to the Internet for about 5 minutes a day. Home now and getting back into the swing of things. First up, is my continued efforts to chip away at the mountain of stats that has built up over the past few months. We have certainly had no shortage of social media stats lately. Below are a few of the additions and updates. Keep an eye out for more updates this week. I am setting aside quite a bit of time this week to get caught up.
It’s been a few weeks since I made any major stat updates. With most of my efforts spent on rebuilding the DMR Digital Directory from the ground up, the stats took a bit of a backseat. Now, with a majority of the directory in place (and working properly), its time to get a bit caught up on the stats.
This round of updates focuses on Facebook, Instagram, LINE, Snapchat, Weibo, WeChat and tumblr. Below are a few of the new stats from this round. Honestly, I haven’t even made a dent in my stat backlog, so be sure to check back often over the next few weeks as I get caught up.
Lately, there has been no shortage of Instagram stats circulating around the digital world. People can’t get enough of the photo-sharing social network and the numbers are very impressive. Believe it or not, my Instagram stats post has become my most popular post, passing Twitter last month and recently overtaking Facebook.
Here are a few more of the additions/updates I have been able to come up with in this round:
I took advantage of the long weekend to get a bit caught up on some overdue changes to DMR that may be of interest to some of you…
First, I updated our Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest stat posts. I updated as much as I could find and then added in a bunch of new stats. There are still plenty to be added, but these should keep everyone busy for a while. Here are a few of the interesting new stats that were added:
Unless you have been hiding under a rock for a year, you should know what a selfie is by now. The term has been around for quite a while, but over the past year it has escaped the vocabulary of social media junkies and has penetrated pop culture in a gigantic way.
Apps are designed specifically for selfie-taking; phone accessories are being designed to help make it easier to snap a selfie; a selfie themed TV show is in the works; heck, they even teach classes now on how to take a better selfie.
People from 2 to 92 are going crazy taking pictures of themselves and then posting them everywhere on social media for their poor friends to give an obligatory like to.
Here is my monthly, running tally of how many people are using some of the top social media, services and mobile apps updated for July 2014 (the best I could find, at least).
This month, I updated a number of listings including Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, LinkedIn, WeChat, WhatsApp, Evernote, Dropbox, Prezi, Line and many others. I also added over 80 new listings this time around.
