Dary P. Hayes, Director of LAMP (Laboratory for Advanced Media Production), has created an interesting social media counter to give people a simulated idea of the speed with which social media is growing. He also includes monetary indicators and Google search numbers to give perspective.
The numbers have been taken from a number of sites and are documented in the blog entry - comScore, Technoratti, Twitter and Facebook to name a few.
The clock starts when you first load the program - but if you let it run for five minutes you really start to get an idea of how the numbers stack up against each other. Well worth having a look at.
