Fortune 100 Companies [infographic]

As social media has taken the internet by storm we have seen it come into every part of our existence. No longer must we wait to know when someone is brushing their teeth or getting their oil changed, everything and anything someone is doing is readily available on websites like Facebook and Twitter. Whether we like it or not, social media is everywhere and cannot be avoided. Because of this, Fortune 100 companies have taken the time to learn about these medium and have begun to use them.

These sites are no longer strictly social, they offer a whole new way to market yourself for little to no money. Companies can now avoid the expenses of stamping and sending letters or holding a news conference to inform their conglomerate. A couple of simple keystrokes and the hit of a submit button on Twitter can inform everyone instantaneously.

While Facebook or Twitter or any other social media platform may prove to be more beneficial to an up-and-coming company, it speaks volumes as to how beneficial these sites are, now that Fortune 100 companies are taking the time to manage accounts. Taking a look at AT&T‘s Twitter account, you may find that things are a little different from your typical Twitter account. For one, the number of people followed is no where near the amount of those following. When these companies create social accounts it is not so much to interact, rather to inform. These sites are not being created to facilitate interaction with a customer base, they are there to further sell a product. You may comment your heart out on these pages, but for the most part they are very one-sided accounts; from the company to you, not the other way around.

A benefit found in these social media sites is the amount of personalization allowed. Before such sites, if you wanted to put yourself out there you had to create your own website and create all your own code. Today we have these social media platforms that come with customizable templates, making things so much easier. While the general look may be the same throughout, companies are able to throw in their own pizzaz such as logos, colors, and the like. In a time when we expect everything instantly, companies can turn to social media as a cheap and quick way to get the latest news out to their customers. [via]

Top Ten Pets [infographic]

Dogs, cats, turtles, wolves, you name it, someone has had it as a pet. But do you know what the top ten pets are? As you might have guessed dogs are ranked number one closely followed by cats. Personally, I consider dogs to be the best pet, cats, to put it bluntly, just aren’t as fun. A cat in my opinion is only cute when it is a kitten, where a dog simply becomes distinguished as they age.

Currently I own fish, a turtle, and a dog, I have to say out of all of them my dog is the clear winner. While some of the pets are just fun to sit back and observe, a dog allows for interaction, play, relaxation. On a bright sunny day is there anything better than going for a walk with your dog? Perhaps taking a tennis ball and playing a game of fetch? Name one other pet that you can easily do that with, that’s right, you can’t think of one can you?

All animals are great and should be appreciated, but the dog just ranks amongst the best. I realize this has become a rant about how awesome dogs are, but it is hard for it not to when they are so awesome. Whatever your pet of choice may be I’m sure they make good company. Neglecting a pet is never good and if you know of one that’s suffering, please, do your part and do what you can to help them. [via]

America’s Stance on the Midterm Elections [infographic]

I hope you go vote tomorrow, but if you don’t, it is okay — I’m not. Yup, I forgot to register in the town I go to college in. I know I’m a bad American, but the polls will be closed by the time I could get up to my original voting precinct tomorrow.

Why we don’t have a holiday on election days is something I don’t understand. What our country is based on is democracy, the choice of the people, yet school and work get in our way. I most definitely would make the drive up to vote if I had school off tomorrow, but I don’t. I’m not going to disassociate myself with all of the blame — I could have done more.

Get mad at me, tell me I should have registered in my city, tell me I should of voted early. Sorry, it slipped my mind. It slips the mind of thousands of Americans all the time. Voting doesn’t happen often. I also think having election days off would help us be more patriotic, it could be like another Fourth of July except we celebrate our present democracy, not just the past.

Australia has election days off, but they also force every one of their 18 or older citizens to vote by law. If they don’t vote, without a reason for not voting, they can be fined. I kinda don’t agree with this. It is a person’s choice to vote or not. I would rather uninformed people not vote than be forced to and just vote for random things. [Via]
