How Social Media Changed the Way We Consume News [Infographic]

How Social Media Changed the Way We Consume News [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Social media is fast becoming one of the main destinations for news online. An infographic created by the University of Florida Online, explores the evolution of the news industry and the way news is consumed.

In 2012 there were 2.4 billion Internet users, and 1.4 billion of them were using social media. Nearly 50 percent of Internet users surveyed said they regularly or occasionally heard about a breaking story on social media before it broke on mainstream sources. In fact, since 2009, social media buzz has resulted in a 57 percent increase in traffic to news sites.

Now online dominates the news market, with 64.5 percent of people going to official sites like The New York Times to get their news. Surprisingly, nearly 30 percent of people still get their news from the papers, but social media is hot on print’s heels with 27.7 percent of consumers.

Social Media is closing in on print media as consumers choice for news. Online news has exploded, and is probably one of the reasons why Facebook continues to push NEWS in their news feed.

We as consumers seem to be hungry for news as it happens, and Social Media plays a big role in the delivery of content.

Aside from the global leaders, Asian social networking sites such as Weibo, RenRen and Badoo are not being left behind when it comes to the total number of userbase.

Interesting that G+ ranks #2 with so few people actually using it as a network. Shows the power of Google that everybody feel like they have to belong to it but so many don't use it :-) Nobody wants to get left behind.

Infographic: the History of Social Media | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

There’s nothing new under the sun?

There’s an assumption that, just because social media keeps evolving and we start to use new tools, that ‘social media’ is a new phenomenon. Nothing could be further from the truth.


This informative infographic tells the story of how people have been social on the internet, from the birth of email and Usenet to up-to-date tools like Pinterest and Google+.

Lauren Moss's insight:

Interesting timeline of events, statistics + trends, as they pertain to the 'social history of the internet'...

The format and graphics enable a strong and clear visual understanding of the content being shared and a straightforward means to compare various points in time with regard to the internet in general, as well as specific social media platforms.

Why Sales on Social Media Will Be Huge By 2015 [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why Sales on Social Media Will Be Huge By 2015 [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Shopping on social media may not be big right now, but by 2015, it's expected to explode...

A new infographic by has found that “social commerce sales are expected to bring in $30 billion each year by 2015, with half of web sales to occur through social media,” writes Samantha Murphy of Mashable. Currently, one in three small businesses use Facebook, while there are over 42 million fan pages on Facebook. Seventeen percent of those sell products on the pages.

Facebook fans are 79 percent more likely than a non-fan to purchase a product, and 74 percent of fans are more likely to recommend a company or product. The social media site also drives 26 percent of referral traffic to company websites. Right now ”20 percent of shoppers prefer to purchase products via Facebook than the brand’s website”— and that number is expected to climb.

Infographic: The Astounding Power Of Pinterest | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
In our upcoming October design issue, one of the many fascinating feature stories we’ve lined up is a lengthy profile of Pinterest and its elusive CEO, Ben Silbermann.

That story goes live later this week, but until then, here's an infographic about Pinterest, created by Fast Company's staff and designed by our own Ted Keller.

In this profusion of figures, you find out a few, key things about the image-sharing service. For one, it’s dominated by women. Second, something about its layout and culture stokes an enormous buying impulse. And third, major brands are getting in on the act. It’s not a stretch to say that soon, at least on retail sites, a Pinterest button might become as ubiquitous as a Facebook Like. Check out the infographic, or tour the major findings in the accompanying slide show...
