It is hard to believe that in a digital world where people are so connected, it still seems to be completely difficult for businesses to use that to their advantage to more efficiently maximize their ROI.

How and Why Social Engineering Works [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

For many people in today’s world, being “online” has become a constant status. High-speed internet, smart phones and tablet PC’s have enabled us to stay connected whenever and wherever we are.

Social hackers capitalize on vulnerabilities when it comes to keeping personal details private, and the problem has only seemed to get worse as the digital age has developed.

Techniques as simple as looking over a shoulder as someone enters bank details or passwords are often used, as well as sending out deceiving emails ridden with malware and viruses that can take control of your computer. Hackers pose as a trusted entity in email blasts that utilize mind tricks to get the viewer to click on the link that will trigger the infection of your computer.

Everyone with an internet connection is vulnerable, and public awareness is the first step in ending this growing problem...

Visualising Facebook: Your social data and personal infographics

Visualising Facebook: Your social data and personal infographics | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
The more we share online the more we leave a trail of personal data in our tracks. We can now start to explore this, for Facebook at least.

This may be data about what we say to whom on Twitter, when we are most active or the photos we take. Or it may be data that we have captured from a specific activity – data on every run I have done in the last two years is stored by Runkeeper, for example. To have such a constantly growing, structured personal data set is very new and it offers real opportunities for brands and platforms. But also for individuals themselves.

The quantity and depth of data that we are structuring about our lives even on one network comes as a surprise to many people. Taking Facebook as an example – the data we create about ourselves and our networks is vast, and often hidden from the consumer – you just can’t imagine what it might be. The first step to help you understand the amount of data you have stored and how it might be useful is to visualise it – and search engine Wolfram Alpha have now produced a report that takes this information and presents it back to you...

Social Media is Not a Waste of Time [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
In the history of technology, every new movement is accompanied by a swell of irascible naysayers, claiming the technology is subverting our traditional values. With social media, it’s no different. With reports of addiction and criticisms of its frivolous nature abounding, Facebook, Twitter and other services typically face some heat. A new infographic from school.com attempts to correct this thinking.

 

Here are a few impressive and enlightening statistics:

41% of the class of 2011 used social media in their job search.
4 out of 5 internet users visit social networks and blogs.
Twitter gets 170 million Tweets a day.
Users spend 53.5 Billion minutes on Facebook a day.

Sobering Stats: Brands Struggle For Engagement In Social Media | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Take a quick tour around the web and you’ll find no shortage of social media junkies and innovation addicts listing the myriad of things financial institutions could do in social channels. While they pound the drum of “potential and possibilities,” financial marketers are seldom (if ever) offered any hardcore stats on actual rates of engagement.

We are constantly reminded that there are 850 million users on Facebook, and many believe that fact alone should persuade marketing managers of social media’s power. But that number only represents 12.4% of the world’s population, and (of course) you probably aren’t targeting the entire world...

Did you know that 15 percent of 16-24 year olds prefer to interact with customer service on social media instead of any other method?

Overall, 4 percent of all adults turn to Twitter when they have a problem product, a number which is likely to increase dramatically as the network grows, although brands themselves need to get their priorities straight – a recent survey has shown that 60 percent of companies don’t respond to customers via social media, even when asked a direct question.

While this shift towards social customer support is of note, traditional channels are still very important – 57 percent of online customers turn to search engines to solve their support issues...

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.
