Four men and four women remain in the quest for tennis glory at the 2013 Wimbledon tournament.
Jim Bob's insight:
This is a bit old now and the picture you see above is not the winner we all know who actually won since the results came in earlier this afternoon. The thing I like about this infographic is it looks very similar to last years branding. The infographic made on the topic shows the four semi finalists split from top down and bottoms up.
Men above and women below.
Great weekend in London, interesting viewing and once again all the strawberries are sold out.
Until next years infographic take a look at this one, You might want to reblog it too since that is what infographics are mostly for.
Good infographics can cost the earth to design but guarantee a certain amount of reposts to start the ball rolling.
It sounds like a surreal urban myth: birds in cities may be deliberately incorporating cigarette ends into their nests to ward off insect parasites. But scientists in Mexico offer compelling evidence that it is true.

Obama for America's outbound director on the origin, and future, of history's first presidential campaign Tumblr...
The president was not impressed.
Or, more accurately, the president was Not Impressed. When, earlier this month, the newly re-elected commander-in-chief met the gymnasts of the U.S. Olympic team, he did what any president would do: He took a photo op, posing with the Fierce Five in the Oval Office. But he also did something that not every president would do: He took a meme op. The president stood next to McKayla Maroney, she of #notimpressed fame, and the pair reenacted her signature scowl.
The photo that resulted -- a months-old meme, ossified in Internet time, made fresh by the fact that it was being acted out by a president -- was promptly posted to the Obama campaign's Tumblr, barackobama.tumblr.com, where it joined a series of fellow memes -- and animated GIFs, and videos, and snappy commentary, and earnest commentary, and other such Items of Internet. The image of a meme-faced Commander-in-Chief, cheeky and epic at the same time, was -- or, at least, seemed -- tailor-made for social media. And for, in particular, Tumblr, a medium that manages to mix irony and sincerity in pretty much equal measure....

Follow this step-by-step guide to Google+ to make Google's social network an effective part of your digital marketing strategy.
Jim Bob's insight:
Interactive infographic for Google+ a checklist to see if you have everything in place. A guide basically on the options and lists of things they would like you to do on the platform more. With the introduction of named URL's the incentives are infinite. Overcome overload by checking this chart regularly.
Three Core Elements of your G+ Public Perception It doesn't matter what you think about yourself or your company, in the end all that matters is how you are perceived by others.
On Google+, it's not just what's on the inside that counts. When the average person scours Google+ for posts or people to follow, what do they look for?
VOLUME • How many followers (circlers) or +1 do you have? After your profile photo and name, this number is generally one of the first areas people will see when viewing your profile (sad but true). However, don't let this mislead you. Some take this to mean that high +1s and high follower counts (by any means necessary) lead to more followers. That's not true. Engagement should always be based upon quality connections.
IMAGE • You have just moments to make an impact on your profile. This all depends on your image. Now you must be wondering, "My profile photo is great, I'm done, right?" Of course not. Your overall Google+ "Image" is they way you are perceived by others.
QUALITY • If you read the first part, you already know to fill out your profile. Tell people what you like to post about, and then post about that! Don't mislead people. No bait and switch. If you post about anything and everything, tell us that. • Create the best posts you can. Check for duplicate news from your circles or within the community you post in before posting a big story. Don’t just re-post every story from your other social networks.

Guy Kawasaki has come out with this nice infographic, its helpful and is very good considering most of us are typing when we should perhaps be writing with a pen by hand. Interesting, anyway hope you like reading as much as I did. What does this teach you about your handwriting, can you even remember what you hand writing looks like?
Political correctness demands that these sort of things reported especially since the Wimbledon viewers will want a refreshing reminder. Our host John Inverdale at Wimbledon has spoke about women drivers at the show. Interestingly the women have marked his cards to, the celebrations continue.

Does this sound familiar?...

According to the polls, President Barack Obama is in a tight race with challenger Mitt Romney. But he can take a little solace in the fact that he's trouncing his Republican opponent in social media. (Then again, we assume the President of the United States isn't the sort who'd actually mistake social-media success for real-world success.)
Then again, it's not a surprise that Mr. Obama is in the lead. He has the benefit of being the leader of the free world and having that much-vaunted digital team from 2008. Mr. Romney, on the other hand, spent the better part of the last year in a contentious primary with Republican rivals -- and convincing reluctant Republican voters that he was conservative enough for their nomination.
What might be surprising -- and infuriating to social-media gurus everywhere -- is how little candidates and their teams are using social media for engagement. As we noted last week, Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism study found that both campaigns are treating social as a broadcast medium more than anything else.
The social media habits of the Obama and Romney campaigns do reflect reality, however. Domestic and economic issues dominate the conversation.
