Social media is about made-up stats

Chances are that, by now, you’ve seen this often-shared video about the social media “revolution”. Stunning statistics abound and it’s been one of those justification moments for social media addicts worldwide.

But are those stats even real? What if they’re just random numbers floating in bits and bytes? That’s what our friends at The Poke have had to ask. In order to get to the bottom of things, they worked with the foremost authority in parody statistics, Made-Up Stats to produce the video that you really should be sharing instead.

So without further ado, I present to you the real social media revolution. Enjoy!
