Facebook that once had thousands of teenagers last year, now literally connects one in every two people on the entire internet of nearly 3 billion people.

The same can be said about Twitter that’s now getting over 288 million active visitors monthly, and Google+, which is clearly getting more traffic than twitter these days.
