“The blogosphere has hit the mainstream, according to a new survey, which reveals that 80% of Americans know what a blog is, 50% regularly visit blogs, and 8% publish their own blog. The survey also reveals that more women than men are bloggers, with 20% of American women who have visited blogs having their own versus 14% of men.”
This via Slashdot. Some more stats I found regarding metrics of Wikipedia.
- In July of 2007 over 41 million people visited Wikipedia
- That represents 1 in 4 people online in the US (although Wikipedia is international)
- Wikipedia is now the 12th most visited website overall
