Twitter and Facebook however are pretty close and neck to neck, showing that people mention them in a higher percentage of posts that are written these day. We do not have the total number of posts written during this period to compare the %age of posts mentioning either Twitter or Facebook.

However both Twitter & Facebook have been in the news quite a lot for several reasons, which might be why they have so many mentions.

Important Things About The Stats

We did not do this stats to judge the popularity of these social networks among users, these stats are only there to see how many people are writing about them, everything including good publicity and bad publicity is included in the stats, so please do not use them to judge if a particular social networking is good or bad.

We used Google Blog Search to base the mentions, as it is more reliable and up to date and also allowed us to segregate the data according to different mention periods.

Do let us know your opinions about what you think about the stats we put up.

Note: We did not include several other social networking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit etc since they do not fall in the same category as the 3 above, we will do more statistics like these in the future, based on different criteria’s and data.
