Business Tech has a sneak preview of an upcoming report about South African social media for stat fans. There’s not much in the way of detail or methodology included, other than to say it’s been compiled by Fuseware and World Wide Worx, but there’s ten fun headlines to pique your interest in the forthcoming publication, including:

  • South Africa’s Twitter user base doubled this year, and Facebook is near saturation for connected SA consumers.
  • Instagram use has shot up, closely tied to Twitter as consumers share photos across the platforms.
  • Social bookmarking site use has plummeted, including Delicious, Digg, Friendfeed and StumbleUpon.
