A World Without Facebook [infographic]

Everyone already knows what Facebook is and it requires no introduction. Facebook has created a platform in which we interact with each other without ever having to meet face to face. It allows for businesses to take off without ever having to spend a dime on advertisement; local business now has a voice against the big companies. Facebook has helped level the playing field, everyone and everything can have an internet presence. With their social plug-ins Facebook makes it easy for anyone with a site to gain fans and have their fans share the site with their friends. However, what would life be like without Facebook?

As you may have already guessed today’s infographic is all about the world without Facebook. As previously mentioned local businesses use Facebook for marketing, 70% to be exact. That would mean that over half of of local business would lose access to thousands of potential customers. Today if we want to share a picture we simply upload it to Facebook and anyone we want can see it. If it weren’t for this we would have to wait for people sign into IM, e-mail the photo, or wait until we see them next. What about arranging get togethers? We would have to send out e-vites, mail out invitations, or make tons of calls. Luckily today all we have to do is create an event and add whoever we want to the list. [via]

Lightning, A Cow Killer [infographic]

Since I was young I have loved the rain, especially when it is accompanied by thunder and lightning. Lightning, if you don’t already know, is an electrical discharge from the atmosphere mostly seen in thunderstorms, but can appear in volcano eruptions as well and on a few other occasions. In my opinion it is one of the coolest natural occurrences and makes for some really cool photographs especially if you can figure a way to do it properly. Today’s infographic is all about lightning and is titled Stuff You Didn’t Know About Lightning.

Featured in the infographic is Roy Sullivan, a man who holds the Guinness World Record for being struck by lightning the most amount of times. As a park ranger Sullivan was struck seven times in a span of 35 years, 1977 being the oddest. In June of 1977 Sullivan was out fishing when he was struck by lightning after which he had to fend off a bear with a stick. On another note the infographic provides several other facts about lightning that you can use to impress your friends at parties. [via]

How the Internet is Killing the Planet [infographic]

We all use the internet. Is that too obvious? Well guess what, you are ruining the world you live on every time you make a google search. Does the power of the internet as a communication tool out-weigh the amount of CO2 released by us constantly using the internet?

I would think so. They say knowledge is power and the internet is pure information. Facebook has easily helped thousands of people get together and help the environment. Google maps also helps with public transportation. There is now the option to show me what bus to take, the time to be at the bus stop and also where and when to get off. Wikipedia’s reliability may be joked about, but it has proved to be just as accurate as the Encyclopedia Britannica.

I believe that without the internet our society would not have taken the steps it has on global warming. We have 100% electric cars, almost every fortune 500 company has donated some money or has marketed their product to appeal to the environmentally friendly. I think we’re on the right track, we just can’t stop now. [Via]

The Beatles, More Popular Than Jesus? [infographic]

Have you heard of Jesus? Have you heard of The Beatles? Which one do you think is more popular? Today’s infographic compares the popularity of The Beatles to that of Jesus; definitely worth your time. The popularity of The Beatles is one that is unmatched by any other band or celebrity; how many people do you know that have had an infographic made comparing them to Jesus?

Admittedly when I was younger I was not a big fan of The Beatles, but my taste in music was also questionable- it was a time when I though Linkin Park was the shit. However, time has passed and my taste has gotten better, I realized Linkin Park was shite and The Beatles are undeniably one of the greatest, if not the greatest, band of all time. Evidenced by the amount of number ones released by the band, totaling at 20. The five songs to have held number one the longest include: Can’t Buy Me Love, Yesterday, Get Back, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and Hey Jude.

As time has passed, the popularity of The Beatles has yet to waver or even have anyone else come close to reaching it. As major music dies out and indie music becomes the new thing, it does not seem like any other musician will ever challenge their greatness. Even when discussing other greats like The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Temptations, etc., they barely hold a flame to the fame of The Beatles. However, how does Jesus fair? If I had to guess I’d say he probably puts up quite the fight. [via]

Mac People vs PC People [infographic]

My first computer was a mac and all I ever used it for was to play DinoPark Tycoon. Ever since then I’ve always been a PC person until college. When I graduated I didn’t want the temptation of playing video games on a PC laptop, so I went to Apple. I love my mac. I have never had a computer that has worked this well for this long, although I still hate Macs mostly the company behind them. A PC is such a more versatile computer. Mac has pretty limited capability and is way too overpriced, but now I’ll stop the computer war and get on to today’s infographic.

Those Mac vs PC commercials really seem to have caught the demographic they were looking for after taking a gander at this graphic. Young, hip, vegetarian liberals seem to be the number one mac fans. I’d say that guy on the commercial looks vegetarian. This graphic seems to stress the fact that mac users like design and art, but these art enthusiasts are not just amateur fans. There are a bunch of software from Adobe and other companies that specifically use macs and have for years and years. This software is usually about art, design, film editing, et cetera. This is probably the main reason why Mac users are so artsy. [Via]
