Second-by-Second: A Look at the Power of Social Media Platforms


NEW YORK—One way to truly appreciate the power and reach of today’s leading social media platforms is this new infographic, developed by WebsiteBuilder.

Showing the Internet “in real time,” as soon as it’s clicked on, measuring the pull of such websites as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, even Airbnb and Uber, the graphic’s timer starts to go and users can see what happens “per second” on those platforms. Users can also jump to tallies for one hours, one full day or one month.

In one hour: 451,461,600 videos are viewed on YouTube. In one hour, 174,999,600 Instagram posts are liked. Watch it and learn.
