Welcome to the Good Country Index, a new way of looking at the world

Welcome to the Good Country Index, a new way of looking at the world | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it

"The idea of the Good Country Index is pretty simple: to measure what each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. Using a wide range of data from the U.N. and other international organisations, we’ve given each country a balance-sheet to show at a glance whether it’s a net creditor to mankind, a burden on the planet, or something in between."

Julien Dos Reis Pedro's curator insight, June 24, 2014 3:37 AM

There are 125 country balance sheets graded across seven categories, including things like science and technology, world order, prosperity and equality and health and wellbeing. Each of those seven has got five datasets in them. Take for example world order. That includes five data sets representing things like how much each country gives in charity and overseas development, its population growth, and its status of ratification and signatories of UN treaties.

Facebook launches An Update on Video Retention Metrics

Facebook launches An Update on Video Retention Metrics | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it
Video creators on Facebook have a range of metrics available to help them understand the reach, engagement, and overall performance of the videos they share. As more publishers and creators are sharing longer videos on our platform, it's becoming increasingly important to better understand audience retention — the metric that shows how well a video is holding the attention of viewers.

Today we're introducing improvements to the video retention graph available to Pages in Video Insights. We want to make this visualization more useful for video creators to help them better understand how their audience is consuming their longer videos, so we're providing new breakdowns and insights.

Bradley Woods's curator insight, May 28, 3:40 AM

Earlier this week, a restaurant in the South of France placed a ban on cell phone use at the table. The owner said he wanted to return core dining values to his restaurant, one of which was dinner conversation should be with whomever you share that table with—not someone on the other end of a text. We get that. But here's the issue: If we can't take a photo of that cassoulet we took planes, trains, and automobiles to post on Instagram eat, is there any point of dining there at all?
