Social media and social networks are crucial to the BMX community and sports in general right now. It seemed like not long ago I was neck deep in the forums or waiting for the next glimpse of flatland in RideBMX to get all the latest details on what was happening in flatland. Today, not a day goes by that you don’t see something new from Terry Adams on twitter or instagram, a new combo from Cory Strat on YouTube, or a new part from KHE posted to facebook. Heck, social media accounts for a lot of our own traffic on FlatWebTV. With all of this flatland stimulation that we are getting, how do we know if we are growing? How do we know we are reaching new audiences? Is this helping bring up the next generation of flatlanders?
To give some data to stimulate the conversation here is an inforgraph for the twitter hash tag #flatland
