Everyone is harping about Social Media Statistics these days – While channels like Twitter & Facebook are surely very effective when it comes to keeping in touch with friends, families & colleagues, many believe that they may not be as effective for Business & professional channels.

I strongly believe that social media sites will play an extremely important role in how you conduct business & and its growth.

Now, to drive across the point lets look at some of the key numbers from Social Media world. Hubspot recently released a report giving out some great social media statistics.
