Key Points to Note/ Commentary

  • Facebook reports no change this month
  • LinkedIn has seen a large increase this month – a combination of new users and seasonal use.
  • In terms of blogging platforms – WordPress and Tumblr hold their users and even gain new users, however Blogger/Blogspot is seeing a slow decline.
  • Tinder is a mobile app dominated by Gen Y and Gen Z users. Revised estimation puts their user base at 1.5 million Australian users (slightly less using the app on a monthly basis ~ 1 million.
  • As people move away from the redesigned Foursquare and Swarm – Yelp is picking up new users.
