How many photographs are on Facebook? A shitload according to the 1000memories blog that claims 4% of all photographs EVER TAKEN are hosted on Facebook! Dan brings these incredible stats and how digital photography and video means his children are living a paparazzi’d life of self-referenced action.
More stats arrive as Barry returns to Google+ which, after initial success, has reportedly shed 60% of its users. We consider Google’s social platform’s failure to capture our or many other people’s attention. Even Kat’s losing the love for Google+ – a negative feeling shared by Google employee Stephen Yegge (from a private comment made on Google+ subsequently shared publicly!).
