  • Bank of America now responds to 1,100 tweets per day with their staff of “Twitter Agents.”
  • Facebook adds 700,000 new members and processes 45 million updates every day.
  • Bloggers each and every day of the week post enough content to fill 7000 issues of the New York Times.
  • Wikipedia, launched in 2001, now offers 15 million free articles in 200 languages contributed by a million volunteer authors.
