Facebook has 500 million users around the world. Twitter counts 175 million. Twenty-four hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. In 2010, more than three quarters (78 %) of Quebec Internet users frequented or contributed to the content of at least one social media, according to CEFRIO.
