Bad grammar and spelling can really get on everyone’s nerves, but I’m not going to say I don’t fall victim to some mistakes. I’m sure you all have read through tons of my spelling mistakes and I’m sorry. I try to write without error, but sometimes I’m not that smart.
I never knew that flair and flare were often misused. Almost all of the other words listed in the graphic I have made a mistake with, except flair/flare. The only way I see myself making the mistake is if I am complementing flare with flair.
“Oh damn! That flare’s got flair!”
Right there is where I could definitely see myself flubbing up. The problem is I don’t see myself ever saying that. When am I ever going to see flames so stylish I say it has flair?
Not often, but I do remember messing up the lie/lay before. It doesn’t help when you’re trying to talk about those who lie while they lie to each other about lying while they lay. That’s most likely the only time I’ll mess that up. I’m pretty sure I just did.
I do think it is funny that the most important misplaced words on here are flammable and inflammable. Especially because they don’t define what each means. I mean every illustration has ‘word=definition’ except this one. The drawing doesn’t even help much. If I didn’t already know the meaning I could take it that inflammable actually means that it cannot catch fire. Not good for kids(or adults) who are playing with fire and think that some infographic said they can light their inflammable hair-gel on fire and it won’t combust.

I try to find the most interesting and compelling infographics that everyone will find interesting. This can be a little difficult when most of the quality infographics are created by those who work in social media, for those who work in social media.
Well, that’s a bit of a problem for me. Not many of y’all work in social media. Sure, I enjoy all the social media infographics, there’s a big possibility that I’ll be in that field one day. Have you ever looked at the stats of these social media infographics?
Well then, take a look at this one. The projected spending on online advertising is expected to increase almost $2 billion from 2010 to 2011. $400,000 of that is projected to be spent on social network advertising. That is a big chunk, so big that there is the possibility that one day you will go into social media marketing yourself.
You may not know it now, but it could be your job one day. You’re already an expert from spending hours on sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Digg everyday. Learn some marketing techniques and you could turn your Facebook time from procrastination to an occupation.
Some people seem to think that social media is a fad. ‘Oh, it will die out’ people say. Really? Forms of communication are not really under the ‘fad’ category. Sure, the telegraph, snail mail, and smoke signals have lost popularity, but that’s only because they have been replaced by something better. I believe social media is nearing the peak of communication and has ample time before it ‘dies out’ or something else can take it’s place. [Via]Share This Infographic
