Came across this Social Media/Mobile/Games counter though a colleague. It is “based on data culled from a range of social media sources & sites at the end of Sept 2009” but the data is constantly updated. More background information can be found here.
A great visualisation tool for for instigating a discussion on the changing face of technology, social media, gaming and the influence that has on the students we teach today and how education can’t ignore the impact.
By default it will show the Social Media data but just click on the tabs in the top right to display the Mobile and Games figures. Add a day, week, month or year to see to numbers jump forward. Fascinating stuff!
