The State of WikiLeaks [infographic]

Wikileaks. Wikileaks. Wikileaks. That is all the news seems to be talking about now. Kind of annoying isn’t it? Everyday, something new about how some government is corrupt and blah, blah, blah. Who cares? It isn’t like any of this will effect me personally.

It doesn’t matter that the DEA has become “a global intelligence organization with a reach that extends far beyond narcotics, and an eavesdropping operation so expansive it has to fend off foreign politicians who want to use it against their political enemies” according to the New York Times. We need to stop narcotics wherever they may be. It doesn’t matter if we invade other countries and spy on their citizens without their knowledge as long we get some cocaine off the streets of our planet.

Throwing the alleged Wikileaks whistleblower Bradley Manning indefinitely in solitary confinement and letting him go on one walk for one hour a day is the smartest thing to do. And I’m glad our country is doing it. If we didn’t do these horribly unusual techniques maybe he would seem level-headed and could relate to the American public once he is released. Now he’ll be so mentally screwed up he can’t possibly be considered lucid!

I hope our government does everything it is capable of to stop more leaks from being released. I’m tired of the news obsessing over this nonsense. I just want the only corruption I have to worry about to be if the winner of American Idol was legitimate. [Via]

2010 Social Media Wrap-up. Facebook Vs Twitter [infographic]

December 28, 2010 |  by  |  Social Media  |  1 Comment

Saying that there is limited number of infographics we can post about Facebook would be a lie. Since we all use Facebook everyday, we can all look at facebook infographics over and over again right? Well, I couldn’t hear your answer to my question so I’m going to go with yes. I hope that’s okay.

Facebook gets all of the fame, movie deals and billions in funding, but this graphic is half about twitter too. The reason I like twitter so much is how it helps the users show their personality. Celebrities, brands, and companies are all not just some entity you’ll never interact with anymore. They all have their own personality that we can relate to… or not.

Facebook being 5 times bigger than twitter does come into account when comparing the two companies. The draw of facebook and ‘friends’ just blows twitter away. I follow at least twice the number of people who follow me. Where on facebook, everyone who is friends with a person ‘follows’ them back. I know that when I post a status, it will be seen by quite a few people who will want to comment on it, on twitter it just isn’t the same.

I recently read an article on how the social media bubble may burst. This technology is so new, no one knows if marketing on it will yield long-term results. It seems like every company, big and small, are hiring a social media guru to help with their public relations. Sure, having a presence on facebook alone will bring in more customers, but what happens with the new-car-smell of social media wears off? Nothing. Marketing on facebook and twitter will become more difficult, but not less prominent. A lot of hard-work, innovation and good relationships will be necessary to have a successful online strategy. Hiring some teenage-self-proclaimed social media wizard isn’t going to cut it. [Via]

How Wild is North America? [infographic]

Perhaps I’m a little bias, but North America is my favorite of the seven continents. We have beaches, deserts, plains, tundras, we’re so diverse in our landscapes and we experience all of the seasons. If that isn’t enough we have some of the most successful corporations and the best sports teams. All in all North America is great, consisting of the United States of America, Canada, and Mexico.

I have been to both the United States and Mexico, but I hope to someday visit the beauty that is Canada. According to this infographic, we can thank Canada for much of our natural resources. I personally love nature, being from Austin, Tx where there is great pride taken in keeping nature integrated with the city. There are nature trails all over the city, and the people fight against any sort of construction that interferes with nature. Of course, there is also camping.

Without nature there can be no camping. There is nothing like getting away from the city away from Facebook, the internet, all you have to do is enjoy the day. Nothing to worry about except what you are going to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When I say camping, I mean in a tent, not in an air conditioned R.V. With that you just stay inside all day, you have to get out and enjoy nature, after all it was here before us and will surely outlast us. If we want to be here as long as possible, I believe we have to learn to live with nature not against it. [via]

Have a holly jolly Christmas
It’s the best time of the year
Well I don’t know if there’ll be snow
But have a cup of cheer

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Ho ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh bygolly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh bygolly have a holly jolly Christmas
This year

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from everyone at Daily Infographic. Now go spend time with your families and get off the computer…

Holidays by the Numbers [infographic]

December 23, 2010 |  by  |  Holiday  |  3 Comments

With the status of the economy still in question, there is more pressure than ever on holiday shoppers. Prior to the recession the average holiday shopper spent $900 on gifts, today an average of $688 is being spent. Just because our pocket books are lighter does not mean the holidays stop coming. Without a doubt my favorite months are November through February.

More than the gifts, it’s the spirit of the holidays that I like best, beginning in November with Thanksgiving, a time to eat non-stop. Followed by Winter Holidays, a time when houses are covered with Christmas lights. No matter your religion, Christmas lights are always a joy to look at. Not only is this a time for the holidays, but with them comes a change in weather. Being from a place where it feels like Summer all the time, the Winter time is sweet relief from the heat. A time when you can cuddle with your significant other and drink your favorite hot chocolate on the couch while watching a movie.

Something I do every year around this time is watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. This movie ranks among my top favorites, if you have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it. If you are a fan of Chevy Chase, or any of the old National Lampoon movies, you will definitely like this movie. On another note, according to this infographic this time of year is when retailers make the most money, in fact up to 70% of annual sales are made during this time. [via]
