Current Growth Rates of Various Social Networks

Just came across this infograpics about the recent growth in social network usage, updated by the Search Engine Journal.

Interestingly, Twitter is currently the fastest growing network. While I am a big fan of this network service, particularly when it comes to

  • real-time coverage of events and
  • getting a quick overview of a certain topic,

it kind of surprises me, too. Of all the networks, Twitter is definitely the one which is most complicated to infrequent users. However, they changed the interface and the look-and-feel quite a bit in recent months, with the aim to make it more user-friendly. It seems this has worked out.
