You are the social media you’re using (infographic)

3 Apr 2013

Nearly everyone is on one social medium or another these days, and just as dogs say a lot about their owners, so, too, does the social media an individual uses, according to a new (tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek) infographic.

The infographic published by The Maple Kind on begins by serving up the number of users of Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. Facebook has the most users, with 1bn, and Pinterest ranks last on this list, with 10.4m users.

The infographic then goes on to present ‘the dominant identities’ in Facebook (the stalker), Twitter (the intellectual), Foursquare (the bullshitter), Pinterest (the wannabe), Google+ (the last stand), MySpace (the nostalgic), LinkedIn (the unemployed), Instagram (the masochist photographer) and a couple of online dating sites, for good measure.
