Celebrate National Cat Day with Cats in Social Media
October 29, 2012 is National Cat Day, so Boot Camp Digital created an infographic to celebrate how Cats have take over Social Media
Across social networks, cats have had a dramatic impact and have been a key driving force in the rise of social media. Even before the internet and as early as 1870, funny pictures of cats with descriptions have been a source of entertainment. On YouTube, some of the top videos involve cats getting angry, being silly or even talking. “Angry Cat” for example has over 80 million views on YouTube, which is over 13 times the number of views of the first American presidential debate. “Angry Cat” also has more views than a few Justin Bieber videos (thank goodness).
Cats are also prominent on sites like Facebook and Twitter. While cats are not officially allowed to have profiles on Facebook (sorry, only people can), many cats break the rules and can still be found on Facebook. Humans also love cats on Facebook with over 1.7 million people on Facebook liking “cats”. Cats are well loved on Twitter, where cat celebrity Sockington has over 1.5 million followers, and Cee Lo Green’s cat Purrfect has over 65,000 followers.

“In honor of National Cat Day, I wanted to take a moment to celebrate the profound and lasting impact that cats have had on Social Media. From the site ‘Cats that Look Like Hitler’ (also known as Kitlers) to ‘Cattoos’ (pictures of people with cat tattoos) on Pinterest to ‘ICanHasCheezburger’
The infographic from Boot Camp Digital outlines the history and accomplishments of cats in social media over the years. Cats have had a bigger impact than many people realize, with many millions of people spending hours each year talking to cats on twitter, watching cat videos and sharing their love for cats.
