Apparently I joined Twitter five years ago today, on Nov 14, 2007. It’s been a fascinating development and back then I couldn’t envision how important Twitter would grow and how many followers I could gain in these years. In fact, 8 months earlier, in March 2007, I mentioned Twitter for the first time on this blog and my first impressions were all but positive. Here is my first comment about Twitter:
“I’m clearly totally out of fashion when I say that I have no desire to try out the new mega hype Twitter.”
At least, I have no problem admitting I was wrong. Today, Twitter is one of my most important news sources and tools for building relationships online. That said, here is a short infographic of my first five years on Twitter, courtesy of Visual.ly and Amstel Beer (!). Click on the image for a larger version.
Footnote: The detailed data for the infographic probably is only for the last 12 monts, so there is a possibility that other tweets and dates have generated more engagement. I am @kullin on Twitter, by the way.
In the latest report from Socialbakers, the game developer Free Lunch Design is the Swedish brand with most fans on Facebook. As I understand, global pages such as H&M are not included in the local reports.
Vakna! med the Voice is the media page with most fans.
There may of course be Facebook pages that are not included in Socialbakers’ database. You can suggest pages here.
H&M is the Swedish brand with most followers on Twitter. But Spotify, which is the second largest brand, creates more engagement around each tweet.
Here is an infographic that illustrates the battle for the top spot among Swedish brands on Twitter. Created with visual.ly.
Not only have I been blogging for 8 years today. I reached another milestone just now. Since November 2007 I have tweeted 10,000 times and to celebrate this occasion I have produced this little infographic of my Twitter history. It was partially created with the service visual.ly, but about half of the content has been included manually by me.
Happy 10,000 tweets to me! You can find me on Twitter as @kullin.
The interest in the online sharing platform FriendFeed decreased considerably after Facebook acquired the company, but the service is by no means dead. Here is an interesting infographic with statistics about FriendFeed. It shows for example that Swedish is one of the top ten languages on the service.

I have just compiled the statistics from my latest survey BlogSweden 5 (in Swedish: Bloggsverige 5) and a report was published in Swedish in the previous post. A total of 2,251 bloggers and blog readers answered the survey. A translation will be posted later.
In the meantime, below is an infographic that could represent the Swedish blogosphere in 2010, if it were 100 people.
A presentation of BlogSweden 4, conducted in 2009 can be found on Slideshare.
Note: Respondents were chosen by convenience sampling which means that the results of the survey is not statistically valid for all Swedish bloggers, but only for the respondents of the survey.
