... SEO is to website as Stumble & Sticky is to social media ...

Stumble: the chance for someone to see what you put out there.
Sticky: the chance that the same user will stay around or input info.


Twitter is the hottest thing on the web/in the world since Google became the 'Almighty'. Here is a chart of growth of various social media sites for February 2009:

-Nielsen Online

"The latest numbers from Nielsen Online indicate that Twitter grew 1,382% year-over-year in February, registering a total of just more than 7 million unique visitors in the US for the month. Not only is that huge growth in one year, but in one month as well, as in January, clocked in with 4.5 million unique visitors in the US, meaning the service grew by more than 50 percent month-over-month."

Twitter is only at the beginning of its steady growth phase...


  1. If there is only one user adding one more, a simgle user, is a 100% growth rate. Does not mean there are lots of people using it.

    I found this relevent link:

    Only 26% of online Canadians knew of Twitter and only 1% of all Canadians use Twitter. Judging by this poll Twitter is clearly more buzz than twit. Still, like firearms, actual users really do like it.

  2. Canadians are traditionally slow to adopt new technology. Look at Cell phone adoption rates. We are stunted at between 50-60% adoption while Europe, Asia and the USA push 70-95%.
