social-networksAn infographic made by Jess3, a data visualization agency shows the current size of major social networks as well as the other well known online services we use on a daily basis relative to their peers.

It also overlays the current size of each service’s mobile user base. These include Skype, Facebook, Qzone, Twitter, LinkedIn, popular email services and more.



Notable Trends in the Social Universe [via]:

Mobile Devices: With a 15% increase from the last year, 5.3 billion mobile devices are currently used worldwide - that’s 77% of the world’s population.

Smartphones: 21.8% of all mobile devices are smartphones. Despite what one might think, Apple does not top the list in sales—Nokia does.

Skype: Mobile usage continues to increase thanks to Skype’s wise investment in apps and a mobile platform.
Facebook: Now tops 629 million registered users with almost 250 million people accessing the site via mobile.

Qzone: China’s version of Facebook, Qzone, is experiencing supernova-like growth with 480 million registered users.

Twitter: Broke the 200 million registered user mark with nearly 40% of people tweeting via mobile.

Email: Hotmail still dominates email, but Gmail is gaining fast.

Yelp: Yelp is topping 50 million unique visitors per month. Its move to team up with OpenTable earlier this year will only increase its relevancy.

Foursquare and Gowalla: These geosocial specialists are still growing, but growth seems to be slowing down a bit.
