What have we been up to on Facebook and Twitter? Online Producer Michael Hugill cuts out the stats and pastes in the more interesting social media stories (in a picture book format no less).

Statistics are an important part of our jobs in the Online, Editing & Audience Research team, but it's also necessary (and often more fun) to report on the qualitative side of social media.
