Is Social Media a Fad?

May 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Online Social Networking has had a significant impact on the lives of people by and large. It has transformed the way we connect and has propelled  baby faced geeks like Mark Zuckerberg to the  billionaires club.  As we get used to this paradigm shifting movement, it is time to ask the following profound question :

“Is Social Media a fad or the biggest shift since the industrial revolution?”

Although the short clip is not without an agenda–it wants to prove that we’re on the brink of a social media “revolution” from which there’s no turning back–the statistics presented in the animated short are hard to ignore.

Here are just a few of the notable social media stats:

– 96% of millennials have joined a social network.

– Social media has overtaken porn as the number one activity on the web.

– 1 out of 8 couples married in US met via social media.

– The fastest growing segment on Facebook is females 55 to 65 years old

Fake & Stolen Facebook Accounts are on Sale !!!


Researchers from iDefense Labs, a division of VeriSign, has tracked an effort to sell login data for 1.5 million Facebook accounts on several online criminal marketplaces, including Carder.su. According to Rick Howard, director, cyber intelligence, iDefense, a hacker, who used the screen name ‘kirllos’, was recently offering to sell bundles of 1,000 Facebook accounts with 10 or fewer friends for $25 and with more than 10 friends for $45.

Criminals steal login data for Facebook accounts, typically with ‘phishing’ techniques that trick users into disclosing their passwords or with malware that logs computer keystrokes. They then use the accounts to send spam, distribute malicious programmes and run identity and confidence fraud. Facebook accounts are attractive because of the higher level of trust on the site than exists in the broader internet, reports Economic Times.

Google Search displays virtual keyboards in 35 languages, including Hindi


Google has integrated a virtual or on-screen keyboard into Google Search in 35 languages, including Hindi, Persian and Malayalam, that will allow users to type directly in their local language script. According to Google, if one uses Google Search in any of the supporting languages, he would see a small keyboard icon next to the search field, on both the Google homepage and search results page.

“Clicking on that keyboard icon brings up a virtual keyboard in your language. You can input text by either clicking on the on-screen keyboard or pressing the corresponding key,” Manish Bhargava, product manager, Google Internationalisation, has said. “We hope virtual keyboards help you find information more easily — especially those of you who speak/type/read in non-Latin scripts.”
