Some interesting fact and stats about the effects of social media.
Could just be assumptions and made up if not for the references, worth investigating further for more accuracy.
Social media was a big step in extroversion and news, however it was a plummet in personal privacy. The integration of social media into everything is convenient, yes, but it leads one to believe using it to be mandatory to have because of all the disadvantages compared to using it.
Aside from privacy, the addiction to social media is extremely evident in the younger generation and often leads to online arguments, befriending complete strangers or even identity frauds.
Today’s graphic poses the questions we’ve all asked ourselves in the past. Are we addicted to this series of tubes? With sites like Facebook, twitter, google, wikipedia and Reddit our day’s time can slip away in an instant. It certainly doesn’t help when your job requires social media activity or a dependence on cloud services like Google. Our daily lives revolve around the internet and I’d say that’s an addiction.
I have my bookmarks I go threw everyday. The same sites like my email, coupon or deal sites, maybe a quick search in the Craigslist ‘free’ section, a check of Daily Infographic, then I read through through google news and end up cycling through facebook and twitter the rest of the day. Do I feel weird when I haven’t had my internet ‘fix’ for the day? You bet ya. I can feel it inside myself that I need to check on the internet. Make sure its still there.
I wish it wasn’t something I had to do, but I guess I’m a functioning addict. I’m still social, make it to work and school and try to help out with my community. Don’t call me an addict, more of an internet connoisseur
What attributes does a founder need to make his or her startup thrive
There are plenty of myths floating around Silicon Valley, augmented by the legends of hot-headed young Turks such as Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg, that you need to be in your 20s with a rigid mindset and a hefty ego. But they're the outliers, according to an extensive survey conducted by one startup incubator.
For the last three years, the Founder Institute has had its applicants perform a battery of personality and aptitude tests. Then it tracked those applicants — more than 15,000 test-takers as their startups launched. The goal: see if any personality traits could be matched to revenue growth and market traction.
Crowdsourcing is undeniably everywhere. There are over 18 million registered users of Wikipedia. Hundreds of thousands of questions have been asked on Quora. Heck, even Beyonce used crowdsourcing to countdown her Superbowl halftime show. (And just between you and me, perhaps the Superdome should have crowdsourced a few electricians to help with their lighting situation... just saying... ) So what makes crowdsourcing so popular? It works. Remember that old saying, “two heads are better than one?” When ideas are solicited from a larger community, it usually results in better ideas - and more of them! So SPARCIN decided to bring the wisdom of the crowd to you - in your interviews! (No, we aren’t just crowdsourcing to be cool like Beyonce!) Our questions are submitted, reviewed, and rated by a huge community of experts to bring you the most and best interview questions.

Two infographics provide data and tips to explain why brands must leverage visual social media in 2013 to stay relevant and grow.
Today, the marketing world is still hot on the social media marketing trail, but the trail has diverged. There are different paths with cheerleaders along the way no matter which path a marketer follows.
Ideally, marketers should find the path down the middle that marries all of the elements of social media marketing, but most are not there yet. Many of today’s marketers are still choosing a single path to focus on or jumping back and forth.
For example, those paths include the data and metrics focus, the storytelling focus, the visual focus, and more. This article hones in on the visual focus with the help of two great infographics that visually share the data and tell the story of visual storytelling...
Leerzame infografiek over het gedrag van consumenten online en hoe (klein - middelgroot - groot) bedrijven daar mee omgaan. Het managen van social media is kennelijk nog steeds een kwestie.
Meest opvallende stijger is Instagram, dat door het mobiel delen van foto's deel uitmaakt van de grote visualisering van het web. Hoewel het moeilijk te geloven is met een upload volume van, naar verluidt, 72 uur video per minuut, las ik ook voorspellingen dat video dit jaar nog 'groter' gaat worden.
Onderaan staan trouwens de links naar een aantal goede bronnen voor dit soort info

They say a picture is worth a thousand words....
Looking at the infographic, it clearly reminds me about the start of "Enterprise Data Warehouse": failures by "Innacurate scope", "Technical Roadblocks" & "Siloed data and no collaboration". It looks so familiar.
Very interesting infographic. Why do they fail? For all of the reasons above and then some... Over 80% of the data being collected today is unstructured and not readily stored in relational database technology burdened by complex extract, transform and load. There's also pre-existing data, sometimes referred to as "dark data" that includes documents which need to be included and made discoverable for a host of reasons - compliance and regulatory issues are one. Log activity and e-mail traffic used to detect cyber threats and mitigate risk through analysis of file transfers is yet another set of data that requires immediate attention.
Social and mobile are clearly channels that need to be addressed as organizations continue to mine data from the open web in support of CRM, product alerts, real time advertising options and more.
To accomplish all of this, organizations need a platform with enterprise hardened technology that can ingest all of these forms of data in real time, without having to write complex schemas. Getting back to the point - What do most projects fail? If companies attempt to do this with technology that is not reliable, not durable and does not leverage the skills of their existing development organization, the project will fail.
We have seen this time and time again. MarkLogic to the rescue. With over 350 customers and 500 big data applications, our Enterprise NoSQL approach mitigates the risk. Why? Our technology stack includes connectors to Hadoop, integration with leading analytics tools using SQL, Java and Rest APIs, JSON support, real time data ingestion, the ability to handle any form of data, alerting, in database analytics functions, high availability, replication, security and a lot more.
When you match this technology with a world-class services organization with proven implementation skills, we can guarantee your next Big Data project will work. We have done it hundreds of times with the largest companies in the world and very, very big data.
This is a great infographic - it shows that whilst everyone is doing it (it being "Big Data" - whatever that is...), talent is rare, technology is hard to find and the projects never end. A far cry from the speed with which companies such as the BBC deployed MarkLogic to serve all data for the sport websites through the Olympics. Now that was big data, delivered by a talented team in a short space of time.
