Analyzing share of time spent on social networking sites in December 2012, comScore reveals that while Facebook dominated at 83% share, Tumblr occupied the second spot (5.7%), more than Pinterest (1.9%), Twitter (1.7%), and LinkedIn (1.4%) combined, and almost as much as the aggregate of all other social networks (6.1%).

18-29-year-olds more than twice as likely as the average internet user to use Tumblr (13% vs. 6%).

“A new report from McKinsey Global Institute, however, makes the business case for social media a little easier to sell. According to an analysis of 4,200 companies by the business consulting giant, social technologies stand to unlock from $900 billion to $1.3 trillion in value. At the high end, that approaches Australia’s annual GDP. How’s that for a bottom line?”

“A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. I believe in Article 19 of the Universal…”

A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. I believe in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, which states that:

‘Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.’

If access to the Internet was blocked when I moved to Ghana in 2007, there [wouldn’t have been] news about innovations, entrepreneurship and others coming from Africa and Ghana. Keeping the Internet free and open means more jobs opportunities are shared through social networks and forums, the spirit of innovation and creativity is encouraged.

…[My] interest in technology came about as a result of the Arab Spring which was fueled by social media. If I was in Egypt at the time of the revolution, I would definitely be a part of the generation that overthrew a government via social media. I wasn’t in Egypt, but I monitored events via social media platforms (Facebook, YouTube and Twitter) from trusted Egyptian activists.

Social media is playing a key role in every aspect of our lives, moving beyond just networking. Social media is also changing the way traditional news sources distribute their information. It enables every Internet user to freely access, produce, and share information with networks across borders. It makes power disseminate into society with ease.”

TEDxDzorwulu organizer Mac-Jordan Degadjor, Ghana’s first Internet Freedom Fellow

“The Internet Freedom Fellows program brings human rights activists from across the globe to Geneva, Washington, and Silicon Valley to meet with fellow activists, U.S. and international government leaders, and members of civil society and the private sector engaged in technology and human rights.

A key goal of the program is to share experiences and lessons learned on the importance of a free Internet to the promotion of freedom of expression and freedom of assembly as fundamental human rights.”
