Real-time social media counter

OK, this has got to be the coolest widget I have ever seen! Blogger Gary Hayes has created a continuously updating widget, which displays the real-time use and adoption of various social media platforms and applications. See how many blog postings were published in the last five seconds; how many people have joined Facebook; how much money has been spent on virtual goods; how many videos watched on YouTube; how many tweets sent via Twitter; etc.



Want this widget on your site? I got the code (and the description above) from Personalize Media.

Very cool! I think social media is just amazing and can't wait to see where we go fromhere. My fairly conservative company hasn't quite bought into it yet, but I keep telling them it's the way of the future!

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog! Love the new features of the Blog Frog! Have a great day!

This is really cool but I fear if I were to grab this widget I would spend all day watching it. Even now I can't seem to stop.

That's mind blowing. It puts things in perspective - how vast the internet is. Easy to forget when you're typing away in the kitchen.
