unionmetrics:

This Week in Social Analytics on Tumblr | From ComScore’s 2013 U.S. Digital Future in Focus:

“Three social networks in particular – Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram – each gained more than 10 million visitors over the course of the year in part by catering to a desire for more visually appealing content. comScore has called this phenomenon “the rise of the visual web.” Of the three, Tumblr had the largest audience at 30.8 million visitors (up 64 percent from the prior year), while Pinterest (up 284 percent to 28.9 million visitors) and Instagram (up 284 percent to 27.4 million visitors) both shared the same outsized growth rate.” 

The first graph above shows the shares for time spent on each site, with Tumblr coming in second behind Facebook, while the second shows the total unique visitor trend with Tumblr trending above both Pinterest and Instagram. 

You can download the full report at the link at the top of this post.

Joern Roeder & Jonathan Pirnay - Facebook Faces (2011)

This is an installation of over 100,000 Facebook profile pictures collected to form a wallpaper, a project dealing with “the issue of data accessibility on the Internet, a topic that is gaining more and more importance and actuality, especially in our times of privacy protection and social networks.

On the one hand internet giants like Google are coming under criticism for unsolicitedly collecting any information accessible; on the other hand it is surprising how many intimacies we reveal voluntarily, especially in social networks like Facebook. 

An unimaginable flood of images with self-projection as its only purpose.”

Not on Facebook? Researchers Can Still Probe the “Shadow Network”

So. You’re not on Facebook - perhaps you’re concerned over their privacy policy, or just don’t want to be found and marketed to - but before you pat yourself in the back for being one of the holdouts, you should know that just because you’re not on Facebook, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t know about you.
Theoretically, of course.

Best Friends: Designer Maps His Facebook Network, In 3-D Infographic

What does “friend” mean? It’s always been a slippery term, subtly changing through the ages.  Even today, the word slips and slides between meanings. A young lawyer  meets some friends for a drink, but she only sleeps with her boyfriend.  There are some things she can only tell her best friend. As a donor, she  is a friend of the museum. In court, she attacks the arguments of her  learned friend. When she gets into politics, she’ll address a crowd of  friends. She probably has hundreds of friends on Facebook.

Visualizing Everything Facebook Knows about You

A couple of months ago, 24-year-old Austrian law student Max Schrems  requested Facebook for all his personal data. The European arm of  Facebook, based in Dublin, Ireland, was obliged to turn over this  information, as they had to follow an European law that requires any  entity to provide full access to data about an individual, should this  individual personally request for it. Accordingly, Max received a CD  containing about 1,222 pages (PDF files), including chats he had deleted  more than a year ago, “pokes” dating back to 2008, invitations, and  hundreds of other details.
