With 5.98 billion mobile devices in the world, geosocial networks and applications are more prevalent than ever. Sites and services from Facebook and Twitter to Instagram, Skype, Gmail, LinkedIn and Yelp are making their way onto our mobile devices and creative agency JESS3 has outlined the scope and size of this “Geosocial Universe” in a new infographic.
Geosocial Universe 3.0 is the third in a series of infographics (the first released in 2010 and the second in 2011) created by JESS3 to reveal the biggest players in the location-based landscape. This latest iteration lists the most up-to-date stats about active users on the biggest networks in the geosocial arena, mapped out according to percentage of users that are mobile users.
The infographic rounds up services that are purely mobile, like Instagram with 90 million active users, Snapchat with 2 million, Foursquare with 30 million and Path with 5 million, as well as services like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email services, LinkedIn and others that serve customers both on mobile as well as on the web. It also includes Skype, Yelp and Mixi, which have small but growing mobile user bases.
