social media, 2010, new year, facebook, twitter, salty waffle, saltywaffle

Apparently they do...

In the biggest year ever in social media, Facebook and Twitter stayed on top. What is more interesting is what everyone had to say on those two behemoth networks all year. Below are two Top 10 lists, one is a list of the top 10 tweets and the other the top Facebook status trends. Justin Bieber has his little hands all over both…
