Is Facebook making us forget? Study shows that taking pictures ruin memories

Is Facebook making us forget? Study shows that taking pictures ruin memories | Era Digital - um olhar ciberantropológico | Scoop.it
Cultural commentators and itinerant moaners have often complained that our obsession with taking pictures stops us from experiencing the moment, and now scientists are saying that our snap-happy habits may also be ruining our memory.

This study says that in general, taking photos decreases our memory of events.  It also finds that zooming in on objects seems to decrease this effect.  Some variables that need to be examined further include the frequency of viewing our photos after the event, as well as how many times your social network comments/likes a photo if posted online. Note: I added the last suggested research variable

The primary reason that I am sharing this article about Google selling Facebook ads is because of the cool trip down memory lane by showing the history of Facebook redesigns.

Au-delà des 10 000 fans, obtenir l’engagement du plus grand nombre est difficile. Le taux d’engagement chute alors à moins de 1%.

I’ve received a lot comments about the image, many asking for more details on how I created it. When I tell people I used R, the reaction I get is roughly what I would expect if I told them I made it with Microsoft Paintand a bottle of Jägermeister. Some people even questioned whether it was actually done in R. The truth is, aside from the addition of the logo and date text, the image was produced entirely with about 150 lines of R code with no external dependencies. In the process I learned a few things about creating nice-looking graphs in R.

 

Transparency and Faking It

My first attempt at plotting the data involved plotting very transparent lines. Unfortunately there was just too much data to get a meaningful plot — even at very low opacity, there were enough lines to make the entire image just a bright blob. When I increased the transparency more, the opacity was rounded down to zero by my graphics device and the result was that nothing was drawn.

The solution was to manipulate the drawing order of the lines. I used a simple loop over my data to draw the lines, so it was easy to control which lines are drawn first using order(). I created an ordering based on the length of the lines, so that longer lines were drawn “behind” the shorter, more local lines. Then I used colorRampPalette() to generate a color palette from black to blue to white, and colored the lines according to order they were drawn.

Visualising Facebook: Your social data and personal infographics

Visualising Facebook: Your social data and personal infographics | Era Digital - um olhar ciberantropológico | Scoop.it
The more we share online the more we leave a trail of personal data in our tracks. We can now start to explore this, for Facebook at least.

This may be data about what we say to whom on Twitter, when we are most active or the photos we take. Or it may be data that we have captured from a specific activity – data on every run I have done in the last two years is stored by Runkeeper, for example. To have such a constantly growing, structured personal data set is very new and it offers real opportunities for brands and platforms. But also for individuals themselves.

The quantity and depth of data that we are structuring about our lives even on one network comes as a surprise to many people. Taking Facebook as an example – the data we create about ourselves and our networks is vast, and often hidden from the consumer – you just can’t imagine what it might be. The first step to help you understand the amount of data you have stored and how it might be useful is to visualise it – and search engine Wolfram Alpha have now produced a report that takes this information and presents it back to you...
