I was sent a great infographic originally from the search engine journal about the users of social media.  Here are some eye-opening stats from it:

Facebook has 310 million unique visitors – EACH DAY.

53% of employers search social networks for applicants and over a third of those found something that contradicted the applicant’s resume.

71% of companies report using facebook.

Here is the infographic link – The Growth of Social Media


This is interesting to me because I still run into companies who want to ban any use of social media on their computers.
