If you haven’t seen it, Data Is Beautiful released a video showing the popularity of different social networks from 2003 to 2022. It’s one of those fast-moving graphs where you watch the number of the network’s users rise or fall.
It’s fascinating to see MySpace dominating in 2003, and then eventually disappear . . . as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok work their way up.
If you were watching that and wondering…what the heck is that QZone row that always remains near the top?! Well, it’s a very popular social media in China.
I wonder which social network is hanging out just below the surface ready to burst to the top in 2023.
