Huge growth across the many social platforms have seen Facebook smash the 1 Billion mark and Twitter expand faster ahead of Google+ infront of young pretenders like Pinterest and Instagram, yet members are not the only numbers view, it's the engagements that are taking place every second that are the real story.

And then there was the Olympics, truly the first proper 'social' Olympics and what about the one off brave and daring feats such as Alex Baumgartner's 26 mile fall to earth.
Space and Time Media have encapsulated it all in a few minutes and gives you the numbers to blow your minds. That was 2012. 2013 will only be even bigger!
