Social networks: quick facts!

Update with April 2013 stats:

Key trends over the last 12 months:
Facebook is starting to lose reach (very slight decline-0.18% YoY)
– Instagram shows record growth (+118% YoY), ahead of Reddit (+88.41% YoY) and G+ (+68.68%)
Linkedin & Twitter still fighting for number 2 position but will be interesting to see how things evolved with G+ bridging the gap with these two!
– Not surprisingly Foursquare and Myspace keep shrinking….

Social Networks in Australia (April 2013)

Previous  stats from Jan 2013.


Tracking the growth of social networks in Australia over the last 6 months:
Spotify is the clear winner, strong increase from G+ as well which has overtaken Linkedin.

Let’s keep an eye on the new myspace to see what that’s going to do!


April 2012

No surprises in the ranking: Facbeook still dominates (Facebook actually claims to reach 12 Mill users, but Nielsen still reports 10 Mill +).
The interesting trends are with the smaller networks: Tumblr, Pinterst still going strong. Instagram going off the charts (but that was before they got bouth out by Facebook. I suspect this might slpw down and will get rolled up into Facbeook traffic, with the new Facbeook camera), and teh new entrant: Spotify… watch this space, or shoudl I say… listen to this space…

A day on the northern beaches…

A visual journey exploring the beauty of our beaches 

A day on the northern beaches, starts like this:


One day, and this was enough inspiration for me to express the beautiful and laid back atmosphere of Sydney’s northern beaches into an art project.

“A day on the northern beaches” is a serie of paintings, all done on recycled wood, of all sizes and shapes displaying iconic landscapes of the amazing beaches form Manly to Palm beach. 

My first exhbition took place at Angel restaurant- 29 Crown Rd- Queenscliff (from Nov 10th to Dec 10th) with opening  Sunday November 13th
Thanks to everyone who came along and made it a real success!

Hopefully, this is the first of a long serie of artistic projects going from Queenscliff to Paris…
