Though its membership is free, LinkedIn obliges connections to have a pre-existing connection. 29% of the total online users, 25% of all Americans are using LinkedIn today to remain professionally connected.

Well, after discussing the key facts, statistics and figures of Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, we can conclude those are highly used and in-demand networks, performing amazingly in their own ways. However, Facebook has won the game by its high number of worldwide users as we can see even a 10- year old child has somehow managed to make his/her individual Facebook account, to remain attached to their school friends or relatives and sharing their pictures and moments to get admiration from others.
We don’t know how long Facebook time will last like this, but the fact is that it has the main hold in the social planet as it has many other features that attract viewers to constantly remain in touch on this, either on their PC’s or mobile phones.
