Pingdom Documents Top Countries On Facebook

At some point in time, questioning where Facebook’s users are located may cease to make sense; it could be almost the same as asking where people are located.  For now, however, not every Internet user in every country is a member, and so Pingdom took a look at exactly how the spread breaks down.

Report Shows Google *Is* Mobile Search Market

To a person with poor eyesight, Yahoo, Bing, and just about every other organization trying to compete in the mobile search market might as well not exist.  New stats indicate that Google has an overwhelming lead, allowing it to dwarf competitors by comparison.

Strong International Growth Forecast For Twitter

If it hasn’t already done so, Twitter may soon need to hire a few translators.  This afternoon, the stats experts at Pingdom took a look at how the site is doing on an international basis, and it seems that Twitter’s rate of growth has become rather high in about a dozen different countries.

Twitter Hits Two Billion Tweets Per Month

Twitter’s hit another major milestone on its way to becoming an omnipresent method of communication: in May, according to new stats from Pingdom, the site oversaw the transmission of two billion tweets.

That works out to about 64 million tweets per day, 2.7 million tweets per hour, 44,481 tweets per minute, and 741 tweets per second, which is all quite impressive.  The graph below proves that the rate of growth in tweets is rapid, too.

6.7 Billion Tweets Forecast For January 2011

Forecasters of all sorts have been working overtime the past week or so, discussing floods in the U.S., Greece’s economy, and elections in the U.K.  Now here’s a little something for the tech community: Pingdom has predicted that Twitter will process 6.7 billion tweets in January.

February Tweets Forecast: 1.4 Billion

It’d be a big understatement to say that 140-character messages are becoming more common online.  Tweet-related data has been released (and analyzed), proving that rapid growth is taking place, and one prediction even puts the number of tweets that’ll be transmitted this month at 1.4 billion.

Believe it or not, Pingdom’s forecast is really quite sane.  In December, Twitter passed the billion-tweets-per-month mark.  Then, in January, 1.2 billion tweets were documented.  So 1.4 billion wouldn’t represent much more than the continuation of this trend.

Pingdom Names Facebook “Most Engaging Social Network”

Some people use their Facebook account like another email address, logging in, checking their messages, and logging out.  Others just add a couple of friends, skim a few status updates, and call it a day.  But data from Pingdom proves that Facebook does a far better job of engaging people than other social networks.
