Happy New Year, daily infographers! I hope everyone had a safe and exciting new years eve. Aside from a mild fire caused by fireworks, I’d say that my new years eve was exactly that. Today’s infographic looks at the major technological trends of 2011, and predicts three more for the coming year.
The surge in group buying is evident to even the internet novices. Groupons have become very popular, and even smaller companies like campus cred are growing in college towns. These handy group buying websites are great for saving money and great for the technologically inclined.
Geolocation Aps have become increasingly popular throughout the past year for letting your pals know exactly where you are. I’m not big on “checking in” but there is no doubting the popularity of aps like foursquare and facebook locations.
Now as for my favorite technological trend, mobile photo sharing aps has to be the most entertaining. I don’t know any girl who isn’t a total instagram nerd. With the help of a few settings, anyone can become a vintagey hipster photographer.
Now as for future trends, All of these seem quite boring. Maybe because i’m not too involved in complex technology, but hopefully 2012 has some more cutsey trends like instagram to occupy my attention! [Via]Share This Infographic
First post of the new year (for me anyway), hope to bring all of you even better infographics this year. To start off I have another Daily Infographic original hot off the presses to present ya’ll. For those of you who didn’t see our last infographic you can check it out here. Today’s isn’t as morbid as the last and is quite appropriate for the times, the topic being New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re like most people you probably made a New Year’s resolution and more so you are probably going to break it like most people. I feel like any New Year’s resolution is just a habit I should have in my life anyway.
According to today’s infographic some of the top New Year’s Resolutions consist of getting fit, drinking less alcohol, get a better job, so on and so forth. Some helpful tips to keep true to your resolution(s) this year: set realistic goals, start with small steps, pick just one resolution, and set intermediate milestones. Enjoy today’s infographic and don’t forget to share!Share This Infographic
Happy New Year to all of you lovely infographic readers! We wish you a healthy and happy 2013! The New Years Eve festivities have now come and past, and hope that you all enjoyed a glass of champagne, a New Years kiss and a touch of sparkle.
Today’s infographic takes you through the facts of New Years. Ever wondered how many pounds of confetti are dropped in Times Square at midnight? Oh, well that would be 2,000 pounds. And we all will make resolutions to bring into 2013. I know I will make about 10. Some include yoga 3+ times a week and eat three healthy meals a week. Unfortunately only about 46% keep their resolutions after 26 weeks. Here’s to keeping our resolutions!
Eat your legumes and leafy greens and have a happy New Year! [Via]Share This Infographic
The start if the new year always has a way of turning our gazes forward. For some this is reassuring… for others, intimidating.
This reflective infographic shows where the American populace stands on a variety of different issues that have taken center stage in the 21st century. For example, the ever-pressing issue of our abused environment. A very convinced 72 per cent majority believe that by 2050, there will be a global energy crisis.
Americans were much more optimistic about the next forty years of technological advancements. A full 81 % foresee computers communicating the same way humans do. Many also see space travel for the common man as a possibility in 2050.
Looking at this infographic prompted me to question some of my thoughts on the future. The surveys were very revealing. The population is on the fence about more than a few things. More than half think another world war is on the horizon.
In such turbulent times, what do you think the next forty years hold?
Cheers everyone, have a phre$h new year.Share This Infographic
Having traveled across state lines for the holidays, I had a lot of time to catch up with my mom. She’d ask how this person is doing and what my ex significant other is up to. I usually didn’t have good news to report and when asked how I knew what I knew, the response was always the same answer. Facebook.
I’m sure you know the people of this technological era have no problems with disclosure whatsoever. The second a thought crosses one’s mind, it is immediately shared between 300+ people. When Jimmy’s bread has molded and Sarah realized she put on a few pounds, it is then made our business.
After doing so much social disection of the people of facebook, the infographic began to make more sense.
Every archetypal chracter that is my facebook storyboard is perfectly described. From the brown nosing, overachieving top ten percenter to the cutie you never found the courage to talk to. Seeing these people everyday can be annoying, even if it’s virtually.
Keeping with the theme of predictablity, count how many times “new year, new me” pops up on your news feed. Let’s see how many stick to their guns and don’t continue the trend of being one of the ten types of facebook friends. [Via]Share This Infographic
