I’ve been on a social media infographic and statistics kick lately. With the data from the Pew Internet & American Life Project, along with some of the great statistics from comScore I’ve been staring at numbers for days. In this week’s HCSM Week in Review I get to share some of the great information I’ve found along the way.

- The other day I stumbled upon a really great YouTube video from author and speaker Erik Qualman. The video is part of a series called Social Media Revolution and details some really interesting social media statistics. The video has some spazzy music, so you may want to mute your speakers, unless a dance party in the middle of your waiting room is okay. Social Media 2013
