To properly put the explosive growth of Social Media in perspective, imagine a world where MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN and dozens of other ubiquitous social platforms did not exist. Now, consider the fact that MySpace started only a little more than a decade ago in August of 2003. Facebook was founded a year more recently in February of 2004. Just 8 years since that start date, according to data released in 2012, Facebook was adding over half a petabyte of data every 24 hours, amounting to about 180 petabytes per year with more than a billion active users reported In September of 2012. Social Networking is here to stay and the rampant growth phase is far from complete.
