Facebook lost 45 million members in one day!

Yes thats true, facebook lost 45 million members in just one day. It all happened because facebook didn’t took any action against a group on facebook which is holding a contest on 20th of may to draw pictures of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in the name of freedom of speech.

Twitter study: 40.5% tweets are “Pointless Babble”!

Twitter is getting more and more popularity day by day but it looks like its converting from a voice to a noise as recent study shows that 40.5% tweets are “Pointless Babble”!

Study states:

A while back we embarked on a study that evolved after a having a debate in the office as to how people are using and consuming Twitter. Some felt it was their source of news and articles, others felt it was just a bunch of self-promotion with very few folks actually paying attention. But mostly, many people still perceive Twitter as just mindless babble of people telling you what they are doing minute-by-minute; as if you care they are eating a sandwich at the moment.

This study was conducted by Pear Analytics. You can read more details about it here.
