What’s the #1 thing people are doing online? [Infographic]

What’s the #1 thing people are doing online? [Infographic] | Communication design | Scoop.it

What are you doing on the Internet? Shopping? Tweeting? Checking Facebook?


**71% of you are watching videos on Vimeo or YouTube

The infographic covers the PEW survey for the past

three years on what adults are doing on the Internet.


I love that 81% of us are using the Internet to check the weather. This is my favorite site to check the weather btw.


So what’s the #1 thing people are doing online?

Interesting. I'm surprised at the shopping numbers. I thought other sources of data had the % of people shopping online similarly high, but a much smaller % of people actually "buying" online...
janlgordon's comment, November 20, 2011 10:48 AM
Hi Darcy, I agree with you, it is a bit surprising - you would think the percentage was higher - there may be some hidden #'s they're not capturing, It'll definitely be interesting to see how how this looks after the holidays.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 23, 2:01 PM

Perhaps School as we know is on the way out, but education and School are not interchangeable words although they are used that way frequently. Actually, School as we know it should have been on the way out a long time ago. With the current reformers who propose change that does not change the structure, it is not happening soon.

Great mistakes in English medieval architecture

Great mistakes in English medieval architecture | Communication design | Scoop.it

One of the great things about medieval art and architecture is that people just went in and did things. They didn’t build models and scale them up, building great cathedrals and abbeys was a learning process as much as anything else. This means many of these apparently perfect aspirations to the Heavenly Jerusalem have some often quite comical mistakes, corrections and bodge-jobs that once you see, you can’t unnotice.

Guest posting is a great way to get more exposure for your brand. However, as I'm sure many of my fellow bloggers will agree with me, there are more bad pitches than ones that actually make it to the pile. 


Jess Ostroff has some great advice for people interested in submitting posts to other blogs.

7 Web Design Disasters Drive People Crazy

7 Web Design Disasters Drive People Crazy | Communication design | Scoop.it

A poorly designed website has real impacts, whether page views or sales. We won't hesitate to bounce away to another with a better user experience.

1. Requiring users to signup before browsing your site
2. Forgetting about multiple screens
3. Having ridiculous forms to fill out
4. Using hard to read or cutesy fonts
5. Implementing a Search bar that sucks
6. Bombarding the reader with a wall of text
7. Displaying your products with low-res images

MS - 8 Non stop animated gifs (you will discover what I'm talking about)

Marty Note
Agree with all 7 of these annoying disasters and would add an 8th - too many animated gifs all running at the same time with NO STOP.

The LinkedIn Publishing platforms has been a bone of contention for many, especially regarding duplicate content. All the people I know have reposted their articles.


However, as @Optimum Business Support suggests in this article, you should not just copy and paste your content verbatim. And wait a few days before reposting from your blog.
