17 Fantastic Infographic Generators!

17 Fantastic Infographic Generators! | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Data is crucial. However, displaying a chunk of plain data can be monotonous. Infographics visualize plain data and make it visually more appealing. Data turned into infographic has a higher potential to go viral and be effective. While many of us are designers who can design amazing infographs, Infographic Generators can come in handy to Designers and non-designers alike. They can be a time saving resource. So here is a list of 17 fantastic Infographic Generators I compiled together:...

How to Show Your Clients the Value of Facebook in 7 Easy Steps

How to Show Your Clients the Value of Facebook in 7 Easy Steps | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Have you ever had clients who weren't yet sold onFacebook? Most people know Facebook could potentially help them grow their businesses, but getting a page set up and managed properly can still be a daunting task for many folks.

 

First off, you might need to nudge your clients toward acting. When researching your pitch, find examples of similar businesses that have vibrant Facebook presences. Let the clients know what they're missing out on. You can also get their attention by showing them the data on Facebook's exponential user growth and the mind-blowing predictions of continued growth. Here you can even focus on the clients' particular markets. Finally, show them some examples of pages you've helped develop in order to establish your own credibility.

Sigrid, in my opinion, the best plan is to sell yourself on social media. Trust is the most important in this world and if your company name is not Nike or something like that, your name is definitely the best plan to create confidence.

Do You Share Too Much on Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Do You Share Too Much on Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
This infographic examines whether social media users actually share more than is necessary -- or safe -- online.

 

***** These debates about social around security seem disingenuous. This idea that we are somehow more vulnerable because we tweet doesn’t make sense. Bad things happened before there was social media; so social networks don't create crime. Can criminals use them like they've used ever other technology (cars, guns, hammers)? Of course the answer is yes, but social doesn't create a criminal context as many anti-social critics imply.

 

Read Tipping Point or Freakonomics or just think and act critically. Does sharing information a priori create crime? No, sharing context is another brick in a criminal dam that would have used other technologies in the past. Does easy access to these new tools increase crime? I think not even as I recognize it may change types of crime committed (more digital attacks than muggings).

 

What we know beyond any question is some small group will use whatever technology is available for harm. I don't think social sharing increases that set by even a small amount even as I know new technology may arm them differently. Does that mean I should tweet when I'm leaving the house and where my spare key is? Probably not but more because those are boring tweets than that they put me in some immediate danger.

How To Decide Which Social Network You Should Use

How To Decide Which Social Network You Should Use | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

You don’t have time to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Orkut, LinkedIn, wait, Orkut? Exactly. There are literally kabillions of social networks out there just screaming to get you in as a user. Sure, Twitter and Facebook are the big ones that you’ve already joined. But are they right for you? What about LinkedIn? Or the upstart (and newly redesigned) Google+?

 

The following infographic from business consultant Zintro does a decent job summarizing the numbers, pros and cons, and what makes each network different. While it is not exhaustive (where’s Pinterest?!), it’s helpful.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Report: Students On Facebook Study 10 Times Less Than Non-Users

Report: Students On Facebook Study 10 Times Less Than Non-Users | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

We all know that as students progress through their school years, their homework load increases. Fifteen year olds may look longingly back to when they were ten and had a whole lot less work to do at home. According to the handy infographic below, the average 6-8 year old spends 9 hours per week studying, vs. 14 hours per week for college students. That doesn’t seem so awful, especially when you consider that the average student spends 4.39 hours per day watching television.

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

 

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Maybe you want create your own infographic, here 10 tools to support you to do it. [note mg]

 

Information graphics, visual representations of data known as infographics, keep the web going these days. Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.

 

Who can resist a colourful, thoughtful venn diagram anyway? In terms of blogging success, infographics are far more likely to be shared than your average blog post. This means more eyeballs on your important information, more people rallying for your cause, more backlinks and more visits to your blog. In short, a quality infographic done well could be what your blog needs right now.

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year ago but this infographic is a lot more… fun.

 

Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!
