“Some other notable trends in the geosocial universe, courtesy of JESS3:

■ Mobile: 5.3 billion mobile devices are used worldwide — that’s 77 percent of the world’s population
■ Smartphones: 21.8 percent of all mobile devices are smartphones. Despite what one might think, Apple does not top the list in sales—Nokia does
■ Skype: Mobile usage continues to increase thanks to Skype’s wise investment in apps and its mobile platform
■ Facebook: Now tops 629 million registered users with almost 250 million people accessing the site via mobile
■ Qzone: China’s version of Facebook, Qzone, is experiencing supernova-like growth with 480 million registered users
■ Twitter: Broke the 200 million registered user mark with nearly 40 percent of people tweeting via mobile
■ Email: Hotmail still dominates email, but Gmail is gaining fast
■ Yelp: Yelp is topping 50 million unique visitors per month. Its move to team up with OpenTable earlier this year will only increase its relevancy
■ Foursquare and Gowalla: These geosocial specialists are still growing, but growth seems to be slowing down a bit”
