Canadian social media statistics

written by Daryl Woods

This video produced for Rogers Communications in Canada contains some mind-boggling statistics and presents them with great style. I’m not a big fan of the company but great work is great work. Kudos.

“Next is Now depicts the human connections empowered by rapid changes in communications technology in Canada and around the world. Next is Now was produced by Rogers with support from 76design (www.76design.com) and Thornley Fallis (www.thornleyfallis.com)”
