One of the most interesting ideas in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams is the babelfish, a small fish that goes into your ear and acts as an embedded Rosetta stone, converting languages from one to the other without the detection of the user.
Is that something we can look forward to as a global audience begins to use social networks? A new infographic looks at just how many languages are being spoken on these various social networks.
The infographic from the folks at Language Connect lists the number of languages spoken on each social network as well as the number of users on each network. It’s surprise to see Google+ with such a high number of users and languages, and those numbers may not be entirely accurate – Google has been evasive about providing specific numbers of users on the service.
