Here's everything that happens in one minute on the internet | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it
The scale of the internet is so great, that it doesn’t make sense to look at the information on a monthly basis, or even to use daily figures.

The information in the infographic is simply mind-boggling! It is clear that we are not running the internet, rather it is the other way round, the internet is running our lives!

Here's what happens in one minute on the internet in China

Here's what happens in one minute on the internet in China | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

There are nearly 700 million internet users in China, and they don’t let their connections go to waste. The country is a downloading, WeChatting, ecommercing powerhouse, and it has the statistics to prove it.

 

We sorted through the numbers put out by some of China’s biggest internet companies, and brought them down to scale. This is an internet minute in China. The country does in 60 seconds what some would only do over a day, week, or more. Not too shabby....

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Web Design Basics
Love these five web design basics:

* Learn TYPE Design.
* Pick Great Fonts That Fit Your TONE.
* Pick 3 Color Palette & STICK TO IT.
* Photos = RIGHT SIZE.
* When In Doubt, Give It SPACE.

This last tip is our favorite. Nothing we hate more than claustrophobic web design. Problem is claustrophobia is easy to create. We all WANT to do so much.

When I was an Ecommerce Director we studied our links carefully. We found that 5% of our links received 90% of the clicks. That equation turned out to be a fractal. No matter how small we cut it, no matter how we shifted the design, a small % of the links dominated.

This means MOST of what WE, as designers, think is important isn't. We learned to be Google - Vicious about what we added. Adding meant something had to COME OFF the design. This strange User Interface math means you have more ROOM than you realize.

Find what matters and LINK IT. Design what matters and eliminate the flotsam and jetsam so you have SPACE around what matters since it is that SPACE that signals IMPORTANCE to your visitors.  .

The Internet With A Human Face | Beyond Tellerrand 2014 Conference Talk

The Internet With A Human Face | Beyond Tellerrand 2014 Conference Talk | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Marc [Thiele] emailed me a few weeks ago to ask if I thought my talk would be appropriate to close the conference.


"Marc," I told him, "my talk is perfect for closing the conference! The first half is this incredibly dark rant about how the Internet is alienating and inhuman, how it's turning us all into lonely monsters.”


“But in the second half, I'll turn it around and present my vision of an alternative future. I'll get the audience fired up like a proper American motivational speaker. After the big finish, we'll burst out of the conference hall into the streets of Düsseldorf, hoist the black flag, and change the world.”


Marc said that sounded fine....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

This is a really inspiring presentation by Maciej Cegłowski. Highly recommended if you're hungry for ideas. 10/10

How an Archive of the Internet Could Change History

How an Archive of the Internet Could Change History | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

I left with an urgent curiosity about what sort of artifacts we would display a few decades from now, for future generations to discover. Our contemporary analogues to the personal notebook now live on the web — communal, crowdsourced and shared online in real time. Some of the most interesting and vital work I come across exists only in pixels. Tumblr, for example, contains endless warrens of critical theory about trans identity politics and expression, one of the few havens on the web where that sort of discourse exists. Many of the short videos on Vine feel as though they belong to an ever-­evolving, completely new genre of modern folk art. Some of the most clever commentary on pop culture and politics is thriving deep in hashtags on Twitter. Social media is as essential to understanding the preoccupations and temperature of our time as Haring’s notebooks were for his. But preserving materials from the internet is much harder than sealing them under glass.

Building an archive has always required asking a couple of simple but thorny questions: What will we save and how? Whose stories are the most important and why? In theory, the internet already functions as a kind of archive: Any document, video or photo can in principle remain there indefinitely, available to be viewed by anyone with a connection. But in reality, things disappear constantly. Search engines like Google continually trawl for pages to organize and index for retrieval, but they can’t catch everything. And as the web evolves, it becomes harder to preserve. It is estimated that 75 percent of all websites are inactive, and domains are abandoned every day. Links can rot when sites disappear, images vanish when servers go offline and fluctuations in economic tides and social trends can wipe out entire ecosystems. (Look up a blog post from a decade ago and see how many of the images, media or links still work.) Tumblr and even Twitter may eventually end up ancient internet history because of their financial instability....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Very thoughtful article on what and how to preserve an archive of the Internet and its potential impact in the future.

10 Search Engines That Couldn't

10 Search Engines That Couldn't | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it
It wasn’t long ago that the doors to the top of the search engine race were wide open. Before Google, Bing, and Yahoo! controlled almost all of search and advertising a host of unique search engine ideas were created. Some have survived, others acquired and shut down, and some ideas have resurfaced with the backing of a new century’s technology. Check out this winding tale of 10 search engines that just couldn’t make it.

The concept of individuals creating their own content will endure, platforms may come and go but the essence of origianal content is fundamental to the future of the internet and society as a whole.
