pic test2011 was a great year for social media where we saw true integration of “social” to our lives. To demonstrate the growth of social channels in the last one year, here is an interesting infographic designed by Internet marketing firm Dream Systems Media based on the data provided by AdAge.

It is pretty impressive to see that Facebook has grown to more than 800 million active users, adding more than 200 million (that is one fourth of the total number of users) in last year. Twitter now has 100 million active users and LinkedIn has over 64 million users in North America alone.

It is very interesting to note that this year, we saw brands getting attracted more towards social media and using it to their benefit. We saw some great campaigns and interesting use of social media, along with expansion of mobile platforms.
