Sushi is so tasty, definitely one of my favorite foods. So it’s unfortunate that I don’t know any sushi etiquette. In fact, after reading today’s infographic, alot of us don’t know any sushi etiquette. AND apparently I’ve been eating at bad sushi bars.

While this infographic only refers to sashimi, there are still some rules that you can apply to regular sushi as well; Like dumping wasabi into soy sauce, or even rubbing chopsticks together to remove the splinters. And if you’ve never tried sashimi, I highly recommend it, it’s so filling and fresh. This weekend, I challenge you to go out to your favorite sushi bar, order sashimi, and practice the etiquette you just learned. [via]

The psychology behind color has been well documented. Red makes you hungry, pink rooms calm you down, and green is very tranquil. Today’s infographic does a very good job of breaking down the primary and secondary colors that affect us the most and in what ways. The infographic starts off by informing the reader on what colors suit certain rooms the best. From there it goes more into the psychology of the primary colors, divulging a secret unknown to me. Babies don’t like yellow.

It also speaks on how companies use a given color to pull at our heartstrings and wallets for their own gain. Enjoy the infographic below and let us know your favorite color. I like purple. Have a nice day! [Via]

Brand Love [infographic]

I am all about the brands. I have a favorite brand, be it clothes, make-up, hair product, skin products, restaurants, coffee shops. And the list goes on. I love brands that give me a reason to love them. And today’s infographic gives us some insight on the top brands of 2012, who loves them and why.

It is no surprise that Starbucks is the number one brand. Starbucks is everyone’s quick coffee fix, and I often find myself taking morning detours for a nice, hot latte. Starbucks has won America over, in part because of their fantastic branding. Everyone knows a Starbucks cup.

Today’s infographic also delves into what turns people off about brands. Bad service, wrong food and slow service listed, which shows the importance of customer service. Treat your patrons nice and they just might return.

Do you have a favorite branded restaurant? We would love to know. [Via]

Restaurants and Social Media: The Top 10 [Infographic]

September 17, 2012 |  by  |  Business, Food, Social Media  |  No Comments

I remember when I was young and the Internet first started really taking off; you could start to see its influence everywhere. TV advertisements started having websites promoted at the end instead of just phone numbers, people were starting to get more and more of their information online, and it was like every business (and I mean EVERY) had its own website.

Back then, that concept of all businesses having websites didn’t make much sense to me. I was all for eating a grilled cheese made with Kraft, but I couldn’t understand why someone would take the time out of their day to visit Kraft’s site. That all changed with social media.

Today’s infographic from BlogWorld.com details the top 10 big-name restaurants in terms of social media likes and/or followers, and the restaurants have got to be pleased with the numbers.

Starbucks in particular is in a very comfortable lead position among the restaurants’ social media followers. Starbucks commands 1st place in 4 out of 6 social media outlets, and 2nd place in the remaining 2. With more than 30 million likes on Facebook, Starbucks is at the head of the pack among its fast-food competitors, but how long can it stay there?

Let us know what you think in the comments section and for more information on restaurants and social media refer to the graphic below. [Via]

Americans With Disabilities Act 22nd Anniversary [infographic]

Something you will learn in life is that it’s all about ME! Well, okay, maybe not everything… but the infographic I am sharing with you today gets at something I am extremely passionate about. Throughout my volunteer and work experience, I have been very fortunate to share beautiful moments with people who are differently-abled. During the past year, I have become more and more connected to the idea of serving this population before and throughout my career as a social worker. So, this is an infographic that I think needs to be shown.

Many people take a lot of things in life for granted, and not having a “disability” is one of them. Having worked with this population, I have not only been exposed to the hopeful and magnificent moments, but I have also seen great amounts of negativity and judgment toward my friends only because of their differences. I have learned that many of these conclusions are made on false grounds and that this population has so much to offer—a fact that the world seems not yet ready to embrace.

So, as you view this infographic, I offer you the opportunity to analyze the way in which our society operates. Does the U.S. provide sufficient resources for those who are differently-abled? What else can be done in the future to better the education and employment opportunities for this population?, Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this infographic in honor of the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act!
