Infographic: the Future of Big Data

Infographic: the Future of Big Data | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

Big data is not new. It has existed for ages and can be attributed even to the initial years of computing. However, one might do well to consider why is there an increased buzz around this now.

The answer is quite simple: Significant advances that have been brought about by x86 hardware have actually helped in bringing computing power to the masses.

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic]

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic] | mojo 3 | Scoop.it
This infographic visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in the last 10 years and how some companies have failed to adapt to the changes.

Here’s an interesting infographic that has been making the rounds across social media for the last two weeks. It visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in just 10 years. In 2002, the Internet boasted 569 million users, which translated to 9.1% of the world’s population. In 2012, that number has gone through the roof: There are now 2.27 billion users, or 33% of the world’s population.

Another formidable stat is the amount of time people spend online — in 2002, it was only 46 minutes a day (about the time it took to download four songs); in 2012, it’s four hours a day.

Infographic Design: Finding a Guide | mojo 3 | 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...
