Speaking of social networking, because that’s one thing that I really enjoy talking about, I received a very interesting tip last night. Keeping with the social networking theme, I bring to you now a picture of the this generation. Where the the people that are living in today are living. They are living in the The GeoSocial Universe.
Simon from Bloggasm sent me an email detailing Jess3’s blog post about the GeoSocial Universe. He has put together this really great image of social media and how many people are involved in it.
It’s really amazing when you think about it. Millions and millions of other people, just like you and me, doing the exact same thing as you and me. Checking their Facebook, Retweeting this post to all of their friends, or reading some email. Millions of people that could all connect and have a conversation. Think of what would happen if that transpired. The exchange of knowledge would be incalculable.
But there is one thing that I do not appreciate about this chart. It has nothing to do with how Jess3 designed it, it has everything to do with people choosing email providers. I’m ok with the numbers for Hotmail and Yahoo! but Gmail should be way more in comparison. I absolutely love Gmail and I wouldn’t know what to do if I didn’t have it, so I can not believe that that number isn’t higher.
But I want to send a big thank you out to Jess3 for creating this masterpiece for us and for Simon for sending it my way.

i agree, the Geosocial Universe graphic by Jess3 is awesome, a really cool look at the numbers of all the tools that we love and use today. I also agree, I wish adoption of Gmail were wayyyy larger in comparison to the other inferior web mail services. but you have to put it in perspective, Yahoo! Mail launched in 1997, Hotmail launched in 1996, and Gmail went out of beta in 2007. 10 years difference
I suppose that does make a difference, when things were released, but man, when something is that good, I would switch no matter how long I had been using something. All of the things you can do with a Google account, it just blows my mind!
This reminds me of a Bo Burnham song: Welcome to Youtube.
“…Youtube is a place for people to share their ideas. If by people you mean 13-year-old girls, and by ideas you mean how they love the Jonas Brothers…”
