Gian Fulgoni Discusses Trends in Social Media
I'm here at Internet Summit 09......Ok, so maybe I was there in November but let's pretend for a moment we're there now. I attended a panel session that spotlighted Gian Fulgoni, comScore co-founder, where he discussed the "State of the Internet: Key Trends in the Digital World." During this session, he highlighted the top online consumer trends from 2009.
Afterwards, I pulled Gian aside and asked him to discuss some of the social media trends he spoke of during his session so that those of you that were unable to attend can still reep the benefits. One question I asked Gian is what he thought was the biggest trend in social media from 2009. He replied with, "the growth of social networks and the emergence of Facebook as the dominant social site." Fun Fact: Facebook reported 400 Million unique monthly visitors in 2009. Meaning, from a Global scale, if Facebook were a country it would be the 3rd largest in the world after India and China.
