In the past several years it was no question that Internet Explorer was the top used browser used by visitors. Most of the time it was averaging about 80%+ of all visitors of this blog by browser. Now just like the browser market as more options became available the numbers have changed. Internet Explorer is down to less than half of visitors at 47% in the past year.

Certainly reading a blog by web browser is mostly used by those using a web search engine or link from another page, but now about half visit by mobile device or actively subscribe to the RSS feeds for the many feed consuming apps and programs. I read most blogs and content by Google Reader or my iPad using Flipboard & Pulse Apps. Be careful seeing the Flipboard app will make you really crave an iPad.
There are an average of 23,000 individual daily subscribers to the Between the Lines RSS feed. In just the past 30 days RSS feeds for blog posts were 55,427 views and 22,648 click through.
I have recently celebrated recently the milestone of 2000 followers on my Twitter account @mrcadman. To celebrate I am personally awarding goodies to the two people that tied for number 2000 follower, and will over the next month be giving random goodies to my longtime followers.
I always encourage and welcome your comments, suggestions, as well as guest posts that are of value related to Autodesk products such as AutoCAD or Autodesk technologies such as Autodesk Labs Project Photofly. You can email me at [email protected].
It has been amazing to watch social media as it has continued to develop and mature over the past few years.
