Fun Fact Friday 11/1/13

Happy November blogosphere!  Double fun facts are in order today, one to celebrate a new month, and one for no particular reason at all.

First, did you know that November happens to be…

  • Tobacco Awarness Month
  • National Novel Writing Month
  • National Beard Month (I think this must be in coordination with the college trend “No-shave November”)
  • Diabetes Awarness Month
  • National Native American and Native Alaskan Month (Source)

Famous November birthdays include Marie Antoinette, Stephen Austin (the founder of Texas), Matthew McConaughey, Marie Curie, Condoleezza Rice, Prince Charles, Joe DiMaggio, Gandhi, and Meg Ryan. (Source)

The more tech-related fun fact is that each day, 55 million photos are posted on Instagram!  That’s 2.3 million pictures every hour. (Source)
