Unsurprisingly, Facebook was the most used social networking website last month. Facebook’s very own newsroom website declared that they have around 936 million users that are active on a daily basis. The appeal of Facebook is never ending. Facebook have a huge audience of users. College students, parents and even business cliental are all frequently logging in. The launch of the Facebook mobile app has greatly contributed towards the success of the network. In March 2015 Facebook reported that 1.25 billion people used their mobile app on a regular basis.
According to The eBusiness guide online, YouTube was also hugely popular with Internet users last month. Data from YouTube profile research revealed that those aged between 35-49 years old are the most popular users followed by 50-64 year olds and then those under 18. Interestingly, the race of YouTube users is somewhat less diverse. The YouTube profile research showed that whilst 87% of users are white, only 9% were of black African American origin.
Last month there was a 35% increase in the amount of people using a black dating network. More people are starting to use dating sites as a means to find friendship, love and even marriage. The free membership sign ups are a great advantage for users. It is believe that due to the amount of hours people have to work in this modern society that there is less time to go out and socialise or even find the right partner. Given this, it’s not surprising that the black dating network was a popular choice for many Internet users last month.
