The Maturing of Social Media

I found some of the new stats from Pew very interesting.

  • Drop in blogging for people <30 and a rise above 30.  [Maturing?]
  • 47% of online adults now use social media sites – Facebook is the most common.

Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but as you look at the stats, it seems to me that some of the hype around things like Twitter and other uses have stabilized with usage outside of the teen groups.  I suspect a lot of that is the corporate world embracing some of these modes.

And, if you haven’t seen Paul Boag’s great graphics on Internet use (see example below), you should.
