Social media stats: end-of-year state of play

As we barrel towards the end of 2014, let’s round-up how all the major players in the social web currently stand.

You say Ello and I say goodbye (to Facebook?)

Ello is being billed as the ad-free Facebook, but cynicism abounds online.

Many have highlighted how social networks have reneged on their philosophies in the past (in the eyes of their users) and Ello's terms and conditions don't exactly rule out ads.

I'm not sure yet what I think about Ello (I'm waiting for my invite request to be approved) and I realise the headline of this blog is like one of those spicily titled but ultimately bland editorials in marketing publications. 

However, I thought I'd do a little run down of what Ello is, its USPs and where other social networks have held the same ground and ultimately decamped from it.
