First Quarter Media Statistics

First Quarter Media Statistics | Bradwell Institute Media | Scoop.it
BI Media Specialists's insight:

After an analysis of our statistics, it is apparent that the 1:1 initiative and the distribution of iPads have drastically increased student traffic in the media center. Unfortunately, we think this also negatively impacted our student circulation. We will be brainstorming ways that we can get students in the media center to read next quarter.

The Literary United States: A Map of the Best Book for Every State

The Literary United States: A Map of the Best Book for Every State | Bradwell Institute Media | Scoop.it

"Two weeks ago, we published a literary map of Brooklyn, highlighting the books we felt best represented the neighborhoods in which they were set. Compiling the list of books for that map had us thinking about what it means for a story to not just be from a place, but also of it, and why it is that some places have an abundance of literary riches (we’re looking at you, American South), while others, well, don’t. There are those stories that so beautifully evoke a time and a place and a way of life that it becomes close to impossible to separate the literary perception of a place from its reality—one winds up informing the other.  All [books on this states list] are literary in voice and spirit; every last one will let you understand a time and place in a more profound way than you maybe thought possible.

How Much Data Is Generated On Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tinder & WhatsApp Every Minute? | AllTwitter | Bradwell Institute Media | Scoop.it

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.

 

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

 

This visual from DOMO looks at how much data is generated every minute across the net....
