Two out of three people are afraid they’re missing something important on email, Facebook, Twitter, or other accounts. In the same survey, three out of five people wished there was a solution to monitor their various communication options.

The anxiety about missing out is not something new - it is like a child who doesn't want to go to bed when the others (adults, older children) are still having fun. It is simply in a new arena. This being connected all the time to digital media and communications devices is the new thing - not the anxiety.

 

We'll learn to live with it - nice infographic.

The very purpose of the Internet (every blog, website and virtual gathering place within it) is to let people connect, communicate, and collaborate.


That said, the concept behind Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networking tools isn’t new. These sites just give us new, easy-to use ways to do what we’ve always wanted to do online — exchange ideas and information. The Internet has always been social, and it always will be.
Here’s a handy timeline that might dispel any further historical myths about the true nature of the Internet, and where we’re all going with it, together…

Infographic Of The Day: The Many Languages Of Twitter

Infographic Of The Day: The Many Languages Of Twitter | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

In the physical world, we tend to identify ourselves by nationality. But online, where you can reach across cyberspace and speak directly and instantaneously with someone 6,000 miles away without ever passing through customs, nationality isn't nearly as meaningful.

Social Media Top 10: Retailers [Infographic]

Social Media Top 10: Retailers [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

175 million. On average, that's how many tweets were sent daily in 2012. The total number of tweets sent since the site launched just seven years ago is in the hundreds of billions.

Many retailers are using social media with successful results, as illustrated in this infographic. It's interesting how different types of retailers are using different networks based on their business and audience - for instance, the craft retailer Michael's taking advantage of the visual nature of its product selection on the visually driven Pinterest.
