Why Pinterest Is So Addictive [infographic]

Since Pinterest exploded on the social media scene, the user base has only grown. In the beginning, it was the social platform for women. Crafts, fashion, food and more flooded the screen with attractive pictures and an easy-to-use sharing model. Now all different types of people and companies use Pinterest.

Have you checked out the Daily Infographic Pinterest board? Pinterest is creeping into my Google searches more and more lately. Whether I’m researching new pants or Internet marketing, I keep getting Pinterest in the results. Then I end up spending two hours scrolling down and learn way too much about carrot cake.

I’m still not an avid user. When compared to my Facebook or Instagram usage, Pinterest can’t compete. I’m not sure why; I just think there’s too much going on. Okay, so I jumped on Pinterest right now while writing this, and I am right. There’s too much going on. Absolutely everything I’m interested in scrolls endlessly and I feel like I get sucked into a time-wasting application.

It was really cool, though. I think I may start Pinteresting more. [via]

Nine Steps for Saving Money at University [infographic]

December 19, 2014 |  by  |  Uncategorized  |  No Comments

Although the infographic below doesn’t supply the greatest detail into money saving habits of college students, they touch on some points I’d like to elaborate on. First off – stay away from debt. I know a lot of you have student loans and debt will happen after college, but don’t you dare slap more debt on top by over-drafting your debit cards and opening credit card accounts.

Now with the debt settled, figure out how you’re going to live. Are you living on money your parents gave you? Working part-time? Full-time? Work-study? Find out how much you spend every month for the essentials – food, board, entertainment. Then, figure out a small number you’d like to save. Ok, now you’ve budgeted old-school style. Now bring out your smart phone and let it do everything for you.

Download Mint and Level Apps. Put in your information and fill everything out. Mint will help you understand an overview of your worth, where your money is going, and Level will tell you exactly how much you can spend everyday to keep within your budget.

Finally, be a frugal person. You don’t need cable; use the Internet to stream video. I won’t even go into landlines… Learn to make food at home – rice and beans are your best friend. Shop online and always search Google for coupons before you buy anything. Finally, figure out what bars and restaurants, movies theaters, et cetera have the best deals during happy hour or whatever.

There it is ladies and gents. The key to college success. [Via]

Weighing In On The Gadget Mass Index [infographic]

Holding onto phones, tablets and other electronic devices is weighing down the American public. Why? At uSell, we believe people hang onto used devices unnecessarily because they are unaware the devices are still worth good money.

To confirm this we surveyed 1,000 people using our exclusive Gadget Mass Index, a system that measures an individual’s propensity to store unused gadgets instead of disposing or selling them. The results clearly confirmed that 42 percent of all Americans suffer from EGO – Extreme Gadget Obesity.

As reflected by the infographic, uSell.com found that Americans are very prone to holding onto old devices:

- 30% have “moderate gadget weight” and keep their unused gadgets for 1-6 months
- 10% suffer from “severe gadget weight,” and keep their gadgets for 7 months to 1 year
- 42% of smartphone users have “extreme gadget obesity” and keep unused phones for 2 years to forever

We also discovered men and women are motivated to get rid of their devices for different reasons:

- Men who believe their devices will lose value over time are more likely to shed excess gadget weight
- Women who want to clean out clutter are more likely to shed excess gadget weight

Top 10 Highest Paid YouTube Stars [infographic]

You may say that these YouTube stars are living the life. Lying around all day, turning on their Macbook for a few minutes a day to make one video, adding some quick editing and some ‘subscribe’ buttons, and voi·la! Millions of dollars roll in.

Sorry to hate on your fantasy – maybe when YouTube partnerships were brand new, the top dogs didn’t have to put much work in – but that’s not the case anymore. The YouTubers below aren’t making millions just by themselves. We’re talking about large offices, plenty of employees, marketing departments, accountants, and world-class video editors and software. With the power of YouTube, content creators can cut out the cable televisions middle man and bring viewers straight to their advertisements.

Cable isn’t of a fan of this very much – that’s why they are so adamantly against net neutrality. If you have noticed that YouTube and online content (Netflix) is the future of media entertainment and are scared about cable/Internet conglomerates banding together to put your download speeds in the slow lane, don’t be. We have Google Fiber, the freaking owner of YouTube, rolling out unheard-of speeds across the nation. Yes, I know it seems like your city will be stuck with the devil of Comcast forever – but that’s just not the case, Give it 20 years and we’ll all have gigabit speeds, consuming YouTube side-by-side with Fox and Sony Entertainment.

Why Exercise Makes You Happy [infographic]

We’ve all heard it before: exercising makes you a happier person. But did you know, as little as 20 minutes of physical activity can boost your mood for up to 12 hours? Or better yet, working out for 30-60 minutes just a few times a week can provide mental health benefits.

When you’re feeling down or having a really bad day, try doing something physically active to get your mind off of it. Working out when you’re in a bad mood has a more powerful effect on your mental state. Adding music to your routine also helps to improve your mood.

Why are you still sitting at the computer? Get out and do something! Exercising outdoors is more beneficial than exercising indoors, and is a great way to get in touch with nature. But maybe being outdoors isn’t your thing. Instead, try watching something when you’re running on the treadmill; your favorite TV show can make working out more enjoyable.

Do you really need anymore motivation to work out? Just remember what Elle Woods once said: “Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy. Happy people don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t.”
