Facebook and Twitter are the big boys in the social networking space [Infographics].

twitter-versus-facebookFacebook and Twitter are the big boys in the social networking space.

So big, in fact, that we’ve probably written about them a bit too much in 2010. But hey, why stop in December?

This breakdown was put together by Digital Surgeons and shows demographic statistics (and a few fun facts) for both sites. You may know that

Facebook is much larger with 500 million users compared to Twitter’s 106 million, but did you know that 52 percent of Tweeters update their status every day while only 12 percent of Facebook users do the same?

How about the fact that half of Twitter’s users are in college compared to only 28 percent of Facebook users. It shows just how much Facebook has changed since its days as a university-only social network


Did you know that Twitter was originally named Twttr, a name inspired by Flickr? And that, although many thought this year's Superbowl held the record for the most number of tweets per seconds, the record holder is actually the Japanese anime Castle in the Sky? Our visual analysis takes a look at all the latest statistics on Twitter- with a few projections for the future as well.
 
Facebook's rise never ceases to amaze us- from a net income of $229 million in 2009 to a cool $1 billion last year, as illustrated in our latest infographic. Among other things, we look at the number of active Facebook users around the globe (Asia has the most users, but the U.S. has the largest penetration per population), what they actually do on Facebook (like uploading 250 million photos a day), the games they like to play, and some interesting facts from Facebook's recent IPO filing.
