How Social Media Is Changing The World [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that recent studies have shown that 50 percent of people hear about breaking news on social media?

What if I told you that two-thirds of law enforcement agencies believe that social media helps them solve crimes more quickly, that 80 percent of U.S. college and university faculties now use social media and that 1 in 6 job-seekers credit social media with helping them find a job?

Social media has revolutionised many industries, and it’s leading to big business: as much as $1.3 trillion is expected to be added to the U.S. economy through the added productivity and improved customer service that social media provides. This infographic from My Life takes a closer look at how social media is changing the world.
