World Solar Challenge: Social Media

It’s interesting to look at the social media platforms used by teams in the World Solar Challenge. Out of 47 teams, I was able to find the following social media pages (see also the clickable icons on my team lists):

FaceBook – 45 teams (96%)
Twitter – 37 teams (79%)
Instagram – 23 teams (49%)
YouTube – 22 teams (47%)
Flickr – 13 teams (28%)
LinkedIn – 7 teams (15%)
Picasa – 2 teams (4%)

Obviously some technologies are “in,” and others are either passé or still on their way up. According to the Pew Research Center, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter are all increasing in popularity, with FaceBook still the most popular. I guess it’s time for me to join Instagram!
