Shirl Kennedy and ResourceShelf have compiled a GREAT list of resources for statistics on all things Internet, including participation in social networks and trends. While I encourage you to hit the jump to their site, I have copied their list and comments below for Studio reader convenience. There is sure to be some information of value to your on-line networking and ecommerce interests buried in these resources. Happy Hunting!

- A Collection of Social Network Stats for 2009 (Jeremiah Owyang, analyst, Forrester Research)
Stats on social networks are important, but I’m going to need your help in creating a community archive, can you submit stats as you find them? I’m often asked, “What are the usage numbers for X social network” and I’ve received considerable traffic on my very old post (way back in Jan 08) of MySpace and Facebook stats, even months later. Decision makers, press, media, and users are hungry for numbers, so I’ll start to aggregate them as I see them.
