The Impact Of Social Media And Online Video (On All The Stuff We Used To Like To Do) [INFOGRAPHIC]

As social media has rapidly integrated itself into seemingly all aspects of our personal and professional lives over the past decade or so, it’s easy to forget how much of an impact it has had, negatively, on all those things that we used to like to do – a lot – before Twitter and Facebook came along.

TV, for example. We used to watch a lot of that. And we still, really, but it’s on the decline, as is radio, alongside newspaper and magazine reading.

But it’s not just the offline world that’s suffering. While the use of social media, as well as online video and (amazingly) email is very much on the rise in the past few years, the up-trends for other once-fashionable pursuits, such as online gaming, reading blogs, podcasts and digital news and magazines, are, at best, flat. And in some cases: down.

This infographic takes a closer look at the impact of social media and digital video on the rest of our world.
