Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest – 2012′s Most Amazing Social Media Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that since Twitter first opened its doors back in 2006, more than 163 billion tweets have been sent on the micro-blogging social network?

What if we told you that 25 percent of Facebook users don’t bother with any kind of privacy settings? Or that Google+’s +1 button is used 5 million times per day? Would you be interested to learn that posts on Pinterest that include pricing information receive, on average, 36 percent more pins than those that don’t?

These, and many other amazing statistics, can be found in the infographic below, courtesy of those nice people at iStrategyLabs (with a hat tip to Brian Honigman’s original post).
