Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years

Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

As we begin a new year, BBC Future has compiled 40 intriguing predictions made by scientists, politicians, journalists, bloggers and other assorted pundits in recent years about the shape of the world from 2013 to 2150.


They range from the serious to the fanciful, from the exciting to the petrifying.

And to get a gauge on how likely they are to happen, we asked the special bets department at British betting firm Ladbrokes to give us their odds on each prediction coming true.

How many of these will come true,,,ha...ha I remember some of the great predictions in the past that never made it, whilst the unpredicted did. Anyone remember the "atomic" egg that would fit in a box to power all your household power needs? Anyone remember all the free time we were going to have to manage because robots and AI would be doing all the work?

Infographic Design: Finding a Guide

Infographic Design: Finding a Guide | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

The emphasis on infographics in content marketing is at an all-time high, and the idea of displaying information graphically to convey complex data is not new. Edward Tufte, the American statistician and noted pioneer in the field of data visualization, references in his book- The Visual Display of Quantitative Information- a diagram created in 1869 by Charles Joseph Minard which shows Napoleon’s march to Moscow in the War of 1812. Tufte considers this diagram as perhaps the best statistical graphic ever drawn, and it’s still in use as a teaching aide today.

With the flood of attention on infographics, it’s important for marketers to quickly adapt their content strategies. One of the most effective guides I’ve seen so far was published by Brafton. This guide does a great job of explaining the need for good design, ways to approach content and design, and most importantly to marketers, ways to measure effectiveness.
It takes strategic planning and great design to stand out among the other 592,999,999 infographics out there and these resources can help you...

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

How to Convert a Facebook Personal Profile to a Fan Page

How to Convert a Facebook Personal Profile to a Fan Page | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

Maybe some of you have wondered whether this approach was possible and if so, how to go about it, here is the guide that should put you on the right track. [note MG]


After reading Mike Sansone’s blog about how he was inspired by my act to leave Facebook, but chose to convert his personal page to a fan page instead of deletion, I was inspired to create this how-to do it post. Facebook has what they call a “help section” on this, but as usual, it’s completely unhelpful. Before I dive into the few steps it takes to do this, see what you think (left):

So, as you can see, it never really answers the question on how to convert my personal account to a Facebook page. I don’t know about you but Help sections on websites that don’t actually answer the question, I find quite frustrating.


Anyway, enough of my rant, here’s how you do it
