Infographic: Watch Tweets Appear Worldwide in Real-Time

Infographic: Watch Tweets Appear Worldwide in Real-Time | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

By Franck Ernewein, Tweetping is a map that shows where everyone in the whole world is tweeting from in real time.


Much like Poptip’s treatment of Twitter, you’re not really meant to follow it all. Country-by-country tickers do track the total tweets, words, and characters sent since you signed on, but hashtags and @-mentions flash for milliseconds, constantly replaced by a stream of data that can’t be paused for a moment, lest the system fall perpetually behind. Meanwhile, the geolocations of each tweet make their way to a world map as a glowing dot. As the tweets pile up, so do the dots, meaning the world transforms from prehistoric shadows to blindingly bright connectivity in a matter of minutes.

Sharing Your Data: Facebook’s Network of Worldwide Affiliates

Sharing Your Data: Facebook’s Network of Worldwide Affiliates | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
This Facebook infographic takes a look at the complex virtual network of affiliates behind the social media platform.

Earlier this week, Facebook’s proposed revisions to its legal agreements with users went into effect. One of the changes means that Facebook can now share your data with its affiliates. But who exactly are Facebook’s affiliates? Research now reveals that the company has at least 67 affiliate companies worldwide, with the results summarized in this infographic.

It has some great information about what Facebook’s legal agreements really mean to members and is a focused story that isn’t trying to overwhelm the reader too much information or distraction.
Lauren Moss's insight:

An interesting visual at the 'rapidly expanding physical footprint of the social network.'

Ranking the 100 Most InDemand Employers Using LinkedIn Data [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ranking the 100 Most InDemand Employers Using LinkedIn Data [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Whether it’s a tech start-up or a prestigious global accounting firm, some employers are more desirable than others. For companies, this affects how easily they can recruit; for employees, it’s tied to your professional reputation.

Using an extensive professional data set, LinkedIn identified which companies are most attractive to potential candidates in this infographic of LinkedIn’s Most InDemand Employers.


What makes these rankings unique is that they’re based on the actual actions of over 175 million professionals. Last year, LinkedIn had over 15 billion interactions between professionals & companies. That data was cross-referenced with thousands of survey responses to pinpoint specific activities that best indicate familiarity and interest in working for a company: connecting with employees, viewing profiles, visiting Company Pages, and following companies. After crunching this data and normalizing for things like company size, the top 100 global list was created. Then LinkedIn profile data was applied to rank the most sought-after employers among professionals in five countries and four job functions.


View the full version of the infographic at the link, where the most sought-after companies on LinkedIn's network are visualized by country, city, occupation and industry...

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. The real borders are created by language: Language is what makes someone addressable no matter where he is. Language is what you share with strangers above all else. Language is your passport into a new community of people.
