Justin Beiber music
My top 4 internet fun facts
Jesus and Justin Beiber
There are more searches for Justin Beiber than there are for Jesus on the internet. This fact took my pretty much by surprise as i have no idea what Justin is all about. It just goes to show what people are interested in. The flip side of the coin is that people already know who Jesus is and the best place to search for his activities, as it were- would be the Bible?
Or is it the fact that children out number adults in the use of the internet that such a statistic should be generated? Or maybe the adult population joins the children when it comes to interests. My guess is that parents google Justin Beiber to find out just who this kid is thats driving their young daughters crazy.

Lady Gaga and birds
Lady Gaga is twitters most followed person. According to the website onlineschools.org, she has 8.400.000 followers. That is a major following! Well the lady certainly knows how to handle her publicity. I give her credit for the image she has built. She truly has a style of her own!
Not only does she have one of the most unique collection of outfits.Lady Gaga also has some very interesting music video that show a great depth in imagination and daring.
1 out of 13 people are is on Facebook
Well yours truly would really be interested to see how this statistic changes as Google+ is currently being hailed as the fastest growing social network. To date, Facebook is reported to have 600 million users while its predecessor, Myspace sits at 130million users. Google+ falls only 40 million shy of Myspace at the time of going to press. This is going to be an interesting season in terms of the swing in social network dominance, it will also be interesting to see how this affects the advertising platform on both ends.
