  • Users of sites such as Facebook have double the amount of friends online than they do in real life, according to research commissioned by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

    The study, found that that typical users of social networking sites have 121 friends online versus 55 physical chums.

    It found that one in 10 people has found their best friend online and that people tend to be more honest with friends online than when faced with friends.

    One in 10 also believes that they will meet really good life-long friends via the web.

  • When it was reported recently that the Daily Mail had become the world's second most popular newspaper website, it got me thinking about what the daily 'audience' of our UK newspapers now looks like. The below graphic shows the topline, combining actual ABC newspaper circulation figures, ABCe online circulation figures and social media fans and followers of named publication accounts (excluding individual journalist's personal followings). It of course doesn't allow for some very obvious crossovers between the three (or the degree to which some social media followers may be lapsed or rarely online), but still provides an interesting snapshot of how newspapers have evolved their audiences in recent times.
