Internet Usage Predictions [infographic]

I could probably make a generalized statement about this infographic before reading it: internet usage is going up this year. It’s pretty clear that more people have access to computers and the internet is becoming a vital tool to every industry. But exactly how much more the internet is going to blow up is unknown. This infographic states overall internet usage will go up 3% this year, which is a considerable amount considering the massive size of the internet. Who knows, maybe Al Gore will make a breakthrough addition to the internet that boosts usage by 10%?

I personally use the internet almost every hour, checking e-mail and facebook messages to stay on top of school. All of my class documents are located on the internet, and most teachers no longer bring any printouts to class. This is already a significant change from 5 years ago, so it’s not hard to argue the internet is expanding its empire. The internet is so far integrated into our lives, I almost run into people walking on the street who are sucked into the internet on their smart phones. There is now internet on airplanes…the one place I thought was a getaway from the cyber world. Did you know that online bingo is a 1.3 billion dollar industry? I didn’t. [Via]

How to Spot a Yelp User [infographic]

Yelp is an internet trend that is enjoyed by many, but has taken to the status of obsession with some. While I do know some avid yelp users who are busy reviewing every restaurant, cafe, bar they go to, most people I know are passive yelp. A passive yelper is someone who reads reviews for an unknown place but doesn’t actually post reviews. Or maybe that is a lazy yelper? Who knows. This infographic isn’t about them (me). It is about the avid yelper. Everyone knows an avid yelper, the lunch mate who is on their phone reviewing just after the meal is over, checking in to every establishment we go to and attending yelp meet ups in new cities.

According to this infographic, yelpers should be an easy spot. In my experience, yelpers come in all different forms, but there are some key aspects to the infographic found on every yelper I know. Yelpers typically have their iPhone in hand at all time to review and to photograph/instagram their food. Yelpers may have sore fingers from said reviewing. Yelpers distended restaurant from all of the food needed for all of the reviewing. And most importantly, yelpers have sore feet from their adventures. Are any of you yelpers? [Via]

Were you thinking to yourself “I could really use another social media site”? Well you came to the right place because it seems there is another social media site taking the net by storm. I’ll admit I don’t know too much about, but I have been seeing Facebook posts about it. The website is called pinterest, the concept being you create a virtual bulletin board of stuff you find interesting, including anything from photos to links. Pininterest has quickly made an impact in the social commerce arena.

Today’s infographic shows us just how much pinterest has helped retailers. Enjoy today’s infographic![via]

Your Mom Sleeps Naked* [infographic]

…and so does your dad. * According to a survery conducted by Esquire, 44% of Americans prefer to sleep naked. Are any of you surprised by this? You’d think that more people would like to sleep without the constraint and slight discomfort of clothing.

It seems more than half of people aren’t comfortable in this most basic, primal attire (or rather—lack thereof). Another surprise: more people than I thought keep using the same underwear for five to ten years at a time. (ew?)

A strange kind of insight comes from seeing statistics about people’s personal habits. Actions behind closed doors can enter a whole new arena of weirdness. Some of the statistics for our population may surprise you. Take a look at how America goes to bed! (via)
