If Twitter, Facebook And Google Were The News, What Stuff REALLY Mattered In 2011? [INFOGRAPHIC]

In the past couple of days, and leading up until the end of the year, we’ve looked at a couple of different infographics that have taken a look at how Twitter and social media have reshaped the way we receive and share news.

However, while Twitter in particular has become a key part of the information curve, that doesn’t mean that every bit of news that trends on the network is of the highest possible value. We might like to think that the biggest events of the year, such as the raid on Osama Bin Laden, the Japanese earthquake/tsunami and the US debt crisis, would have a standing on Twitter that ranked them ahead of triviality and pop culture.

Yeah, we might like to think that. But if the things that trended highest on Twitter, received the most Likes on Facebook and triggered the largest volume searches on Google were the news, the world might look a little different.

This infographic from Frugal Dad reminds us that, when it comes to Twitter, you are what you tweet. And hashtags aside, it makes for rather depressing reading.
