KPCB Internet Trends 2013 Report: What You Need to Know

You might have heard about Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers Internet Trends 2013 Report.  It was presented to the public on May 29, 2013 and ever since slides are being analyzed, discussed, and debated.  Below, I share four slides that I thought you could find validating or at least informative to your work in social media. If you want a more detailed look, read the 10 key takeaways from this report on nextrends.org.

1. People still use Facebook. A little less than in 2011, but they still use it. What stands out is the growth of Instagram and Tumblr. However, they are still the domain of early adopters.

 I could not resist the dog slide 🙂 but I think it illustrates well that the era of anonymity is pretty a thing of the past. And in 2013, more than ever it is hard to hide. The report is a wealth of information regarding use of mobile, what’s happening in China, and more. A must-read of any professional working in the digital world. Check it out below.
