In May, Luke from Neworld blog brought together statistics on social networking usage in Ireland. It was from this information and a number of other sources that Connexia Ireland/UK decided to design what is probably the one of the first infographics for social networking in Ireland.This social networking infographic demonstrates some very interesting facts on social networking in Ireland and the trends that have developed across Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin and Foursquare.
