None of these will surprise you too much, but they are worth noting in the year that just was:
* Facebook logged over 500 million active users (giving the social networking site a virtual population larger than the world’s third largest nation).
* Collective buying pioneer Groupon turned down a staggering US$6 billion acquisition offer from Google (triggering an online land-grab for collective buying sites).
* The oldest members of Gen Y turned 30 (bringing their ‘digital native’ customs into the mainstream), while Baby-Boomers finally earned the nickname ‘silver surfers’.
* Five billion iPhone apps were downloaded. YouTube video views exceeded two billion… per day. An average 600 tweets were posted… per second!
