Palo Alto, CA – April 10, 2011 – A new study from the Radicati Group provides key data and statistics on business and consumer use of Email, Social Media, Instant Messaging (IM), Mobile Email, and Unified Communications (UC). It includes data on the number of business and consumer users and accounts broken out by region for North America, Europe, Asia/Pacific and Rest of World (RoW). It also provides user demographics, installed base of on-premises vs. hosted (i.e. cloud-based) accounts, breakouts by business size, vertical industry, email traffic volumes, email storage data, and cost of spam and malware attacks. The report includes data on the amount of time corporate and consumer users spend daily on email, instant messaging and social networking.

According to the report, the number of worldwide email accounts is expected to increase from 3.3 billion accounts in 2012 to over 4.3 billion by year-end 2016. However, business and consumer communication is also shifting increasingly to Social Media and Instant Messaging (IM).

Social Networking sites have shown explosive growth in the past year and the total number of active worldwide social networking accounts is expected to top 2.7 billion in 2012, and is projected to grow to over 4.3 billion by 2016.
