Growth and Adoption of Social Platforms

Look at this animation of how platform audiences have changed from 1996 - 2019. What is behind the changing numbers?

While not perfect, here is a proxy for the popularity of social platforms: how often they are searched on Google. Many of them peaked and tapered off, while Instagram, Reddit and TikTok are on their way up at the moment. It seems the ones that had steady “linear” growth have had staying power, while the ones who had a meteoric rise also had a fall.

Here is who powers the independent Web today:

Wordpress powers 43% of the Web and growing. Qbix is meant to be a “Wordpress for Web 2.0” while Intercoin is meant to power Web 3 and Web 4.
