Facebook Is NOT The Largest Online Social Network, Email Still Rules!
Contrary to popular belief, Facebook is NOT the largest social network on the planet. That honor still goes to email.
Think about it, your email contacts are like yourFacebookfriends,LinkedIncontacts, andTwitterfollowers all rolled into one. And your inbox is more successful at managing text and multimedia better than the Facebook timeline, Twitter feed,RSS subscriptionsandGoogle+feed combined.
With email, we send more than 188 billion messages every day, where Facebook and Twitter combined only traffic 200 million messages. That means Facebook and Twitter are processing less than 10% of the messages of email servers around the world. Yes 10%…and it’s not like Facebook or Twitter are putting a dent in the growth of email seeing as 2010 saw an almost 20% growth increase since 2009.
