Infographics are quite the rage at the moment. There is something quite compelling about a well-constructed visual piece of story-telling that helps you understand complex information quickly.
Here’s one with a difference – a “stats infographic” that is equally compelling, telling you what happens on the web in sixty seconds. Things like:
- 98,000 tweets
- 13,000 iPhone apps downloaded
- Over 125 WordPress plugins downloaded
- 695,000 Facebook status updates
- Almost 695,000 search queries
- 168,000,000 emails sent
- 100 new accounts created at LinkedIn
- 20,000 new posts on Tumblr, the up-and-coming microblogging platform
Even though no source for any of the info is cited, it’s ideal for that PowerPoint deck to help you explain what’s happening on the web. Mind-expanding stuff!
Nice work from Shanghai Web Designers. Via AdverBlog.
I love infographics as they communicate so much, in just a glance. In a world where attention is scarce, infographics are a really compelling communication tool. It’s fascinating to see visually how fast the web really is. Fascinating.
Infographics are awesome: in a sea of information, I’m more likely to scan through one of these if I’m time-poor.
Two things: a bad, tenuous infographic is disproportionally disappointing. I somehow expect them to be finely crafted pieces of work, which means the lazy ones leave me cold. Odd: why my automatic expectation of quality and finely-considered brilliance?
Second: is there any software out there that’ll help me make my own? I’m no graphic designer but would love to experiment. Yes, I know such software would radically increase instances of the former, but if it’s a trend, I fancy having a go myself…
Awesome image. Helps bring the amazing activity down to an understandable view! Thanks for sharing.
Great work, but could be even better if colors of logos/webpages were reflected on the prism.
Wow – what a breakdown. Very visually stimulating. I wonder what happens in the Android market in that same 60 seconds…
