  • Net worth of the richest social media entrepreneurs 2021

    Apr 8, 2021 | Social Media & User-Generated Content

    The impressive growth of social media companies in the early 2010s made many founders extremely wealthy. Who is the richest internet billionaire? Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is the world’s richest social media entrepreneur with a personal net worth of 97 billion U.S. dollars, and one of the richest Americans. The wealthiest Asian social media entrepreneur is Kim Beom-Su, the founder of KakaoTalk, with a personal net worth of 2.8 billion U.S. dollars. Social media companies going public and being acquired The years between 2010 and 2019 saw a flurry of social media companies filing for an initial public offering (IPO) or being acquired by bigger, public companies, generating significant amounts of wealth for their founders and early employees in the process. Facebook, which went public in May 2012, had the biggest IPO in tech and internet history until online shopping giant Alibaba went public in 2014. Many of the richest social media entrepreneurs are connected to Facebook and most of their net worth is derived from their early investment and subsequent ownership stake in the social network. Many early Facebook investors and co-founders have used their earnings from the company to increase their wealth derived from tech. Some, such as Dustin Moskovitz, have gone on to found other companies, whereas others, like Eduardo Saverin, have become venture capitalists. The social media era Other social media company IPOs which created major online buzz include Twitter’s in 2013, Snap’s initial public offering four years later and more recently, Pinterest’s, which made headlines in early 2019. TikTok's founder Zhang Yiming saw an unprecedented success in 2020 and ranked second on the social media billionaires' list. The coronavirus social restrictions and lockdowns led to people resorting to TikTok as a means of entertainment and socializing. Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger netted a huge payday in 2012 when Facebook bought their then up-and-coming social network Instagram for one billion U.S. dollars – a sum which at that time was unheard of for such a transaction. However, this is nothing compared to the payout enjoyed by Jan Koum and Brian Acton two years later, whose chat service WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook for a staggering 19 billion U.S. dollars – although the Facebook-Instagram deal arguably made bigger waves across the industry. In hindsight, Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram has come to represent a turning point in tech venture capitalism, helping to define the concept of tech “unicorns” and positioning an acquisition-enabled exit as a viable and lucrative target for start-ups.

  • People shot to death by U.S. police, by race 2017-2021

    Mar 28, 2021 | Police

    Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 132 civilians having been shot, 16 of whom were Black, in the first two months of 2021. In 2020, there were 1,004 fatal police shootings, and in 2019 there were 999 fatal shootings. Additionally, the rate of fatal police shootings among Black Americans was much higher than that for any other ethnicity, standing at 35 fatal shootings per million of the population as of February 2021. Police brutality in the U.S. In recent years, particularly since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, police brutality has become a hot button issue in the United States. The number of homicides committed by police in the United States is often compared to those in countries such as England, where the number is significantly lower. Black Lives Matter The Black Lives Matter Movement, formed in 2013, has been a vocal part of the movement against police brutality in the U.S. by organizing “die-ins”, marches, and demonstrations in response to the killings of black men and women by police. While Black Lives Matter has become a controversial movement within the U.S., it has brought more attention to the number and frequency of police shootings of civilians.

  • U.S. smartphone subscriber share by operating platform 2012-2021, by month

    Apr 9, 2021 | Mobile Devices

    Apple iOS continues to hold down the largest share of the smartphone operating systems’ market in the United States, claiming more than half of the market in January 2021. Apple’s share of smartphone users has risen around 20 percent since early 2012. Their sustained growth in the United States is not reflected in all markets, market share of iOS smartphone shipments drop to around 10 percent. Apple growing at home Under CEO Tim Cook, Apple has continued to follow a stunning growth trajectory. Apple became the first U.S. company with a market capitalization in excess of two trillion dollars, just two years on from becoming the first trillion-dollar company. The iPhone, responsible for much of the company’s growth, has cemented its status as the smartphone of choice for many Americans during recent quarters. Apple smartphones achieved a 49 percent share of the market in Q4 2019, up ten percent from the start of the year. Apple’s popularity across markets Apple have achieved similar success with the iPhone in markets across the globe. iPhones accounted for four of the five most-sold handsets in the United Kingdom during April 2020, three of the leading fivein Germany. The high price of Apple devices puts Apple at a disadvantage outside of wealthier markets. In East Africa, for example, rival manufacturer Samsung still maintains a 13 percent share of the market, while Apple is nowhere to be seen. Across smartphone price ranges, 96 percent of smartphones shipped across Africa sell for less than $400, meaning companies with lower-priced models have more opportunities in Africa.

  • Market share of search engines in China 2021, by pageview

    Apr 9, 2021 | Online Search

    Much like the alternatives to mainstream social media platforms, China has pioneered the production of search engines that provide an alternative to Google and Bing. Some of the most prominent Chinese search engines are Baidu and Sogou. Baidu – China’s internet giant Since its founding in 2000, Baidu’s revenue surged swiftly and totaled about 107 billion yuan in 2020. A majority of the revenue was generated through online marketing services. However, the operating profit reduced drastically after having peaked over 15 billion yuan three years prior to 2020. Although Baidu controlled about 70 to 80 percent of China’s online search market, a new contender Sogou emerged and is expected to close the gap in the near future. The underdog in the search engine market is a subsidiary of Chinese internet company Sohu, Inc. Baidu versus Sogou Sogou was ranked the third most preferred mobile search engine with about 32 percent of market shares. However, it surpassed Baidu by a wide margin in terms of the daily browsing time spent by each visitor that equaled more than 35 minutes. Furthermore, Sogou pioneered the development of apps to input Chinese characters through a multiplatform replacement keyboard and voice typing. Their latest app - Mobile Keyboard - has given stiff competition to Baidu, compelling the tech giant to aggressively expand in the artificial intelligence sector.

  • COVID-19 confirmed, recovered and deceased cumulative cases in India 2020-21

    Apr 7, 2021 | Diseases

    India reported over 12.3 million cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) as of April 1, 2021, with more than 11 million recoveries and about 163 thousand fatalities. The country has been reporting new cases of the virus every day since March 2, 2020. While the number of new cases has been growing, some patients who tested positive under quarantine have made full recoveries. Why the curve matters The World Health Organization along with other global health authorities have repeatedly underlined the importance of “flattening the curve” to handle the novel coronavirus pandemic. What does it mean? Simply put, the idea is to reduce the number of new cases over a long period to allow people to have better access to healthcare and recovery without infecting others. If the current trend continues, the Indian health system would be overwhelmed leading to more deaths than recoveries. The most important idea is to cut transmission rates by practicing social distancing and following proper hygiene routines. Situation overview The western state of Maharashtra had the highest number of cases since early March. In order to cope with the crisis better, the government was making contingency plans to increase COVID-19 testing capacities of the country. At the same time, the country went into a total lockdown on March 25, making it the largest in the world, restricting 1.3 billion people. After further extensions, the country was divided into red, orange and green zones. Red zones were designated hotspots and will not see any relaxations in comparison to the areas considered less prone for the spread of the virus. Like other countries across the world, restrictions were slowly being lifted to attempt building economic momentum.
