Social Business 2012 – A Year In Review [INFOGRAPHIC]

2012 will be remembered as the year when Facebook reached one billion active users, Twitter started generating one billion new tweets every 2-3 days and Pinterest emerged as a viable social network for retail marketing, but the platforms themselves have also had a very busy year, certainly when it comes to the little matter of their business.

In the past twelve months Twitter has acquired Summify, Posterous, RestEngine and Dasient, Facebook shelled out $1 billion for Instagram and Google+ – get this – launched a search page.

2012 will also be noted as the time when the mobile social space truly came of age, with smartphones, tablets and mobile apps changing the way that hundreds of millions of people interface and engage with the social web.
