Beyond is an agency out of the UK that I started following after this amazing Star Wars Iconoscope was put together by one of their designers. This is the latest bit of infographic handiwork by the agency. You can find them here and follow them here.
You can also read some of the takeaways from the research behind this infographic (& the presentation that went with it) here.
I like the idea of Facebook, I used it quite a bit for a few months when I first joined. Now it's just kind of there - I barely touch it anymore, it's kind of a pain (another thing I have to check) - but I still see the point/value. At the same time, Facebook, and it's founder Mark Zuckerberg in particular, drive me a bit insane. I'm not breaking any news here, but neither Facebook or Zuckerberg seem to have any respect for a person's privacy. In my opinion, their attitude towards users' (and non-users') rights is scary and borders on criminal (depending on jurisdiction and your thoughts on a person's right to protect their private information).
I realize that they are running a business and that the issue of dealing with user-generated content that people want to share with each other isn't an easy thing to navigate. At the same time, I have a lot more (although not endless) respect for companies like Google and how they deal with the same issues.
This movie sounded stupid to me when I first heard about it. It seemed like a rah-rah effort based around a nerdy kid's ability to make one of the most influential products of our time while he was still in school. No interest. David Fincher and Jesse Eisenberg upped the intrigue. Then the movie poster. Now the trailer... and now I actually really want to see this thing.
The selection of "Creep" for the trailer's music is epic.
I keep many tabs open in my web browser (sometimes 20+). When I scan my twitter feed, I usually go through and click on all the links that I think will be interesting or worthwhile, then go back and read them later. Sometimes the pages are too content heavy and I can't get through everything (or even start) before it's time for me to go back to work.
Anyways, I opened up my computer about 5 minutes ago and I was staring at this slideshare presentation about branding and social media. I've made it about halfway through and so far it is bang-on. I'm now passing it along to you, the reader. However I have no idea where it came from, and I'm not sure who to attribute it to, or thank... if it was you, then thanks. Otherwise, enjoy:
