The Current State of Social Networks [infographic]

By Mark Bosci - 3 years ago


Found on Mashable

The course of social media never did run smooth — not for long, anyhow. And for some Web 2.0 companies, it’s running less smoothly than ever.

Without question, Facebook is the network du jour; but even though the reigning champion’s user stats keep soaring, social networking as a whole might be leveling off. Nevertheless, scores of other highly competitive social sites keep waxing and waning; and different networks and apps are more popular in specific geographic areas, with certain genders or age groups and even among various social classes.

For example, Plaxo is the network with the most users over the age of 65. Facebook is more popular with women, but Digg and Reddit tend to be more popular with men. LinkedIn is the “richest” social network, but Plurk outranks it when it comes to well-educated users who have graduate degrees.

Check out this infographic from social media agency Ignite Social Media, and let us know what you think in the comments. Do these findings line up with your own perceptions and usage habits?

Cyber Crime: An Epidemic Plaguing the Nation [Infographic]

By Mark Bosci - 3 years ago

Reposted from Info Show Case

This infographic, created by tells the sordid tale of cyber crime. Sure, you’ve received the occasional scam email every now and then (well, to be more accurate, you  probably receive one everyday), but have you ever stopped to think about just how many of the things are sent daily. It may come as no surprise to you that a mammoth 75 million scam emails are sent every single day, with 2,000 new victims created per day. Yes, believe it or not, there are people who actually mail money to Nigeria everyday in the hope that they’ll get a chest of gold out of an ancient Goonies-type cave or some other made-up location with hidden treasure that’s just waiting to be unearthed by a Nigerian prince and his American business partner (read: person ignorant enough to believe in anything).

The somewhat sad part of cyber crime is that 25% of all cases remain unsolved. Here’s another stat that will send shockwaves deep into your cyber-crime plagued soul. 73% of Americans have experienced some form of cyber crime. You know what that means: if you’re an American and you’re reading this, you’ve probably already been a victim. Now, let’s dig into some stats about the profiles of the hackers perpetrating these crimes. 66% are American, 10.5% are British, and 7.5% are Nigerian. Now, at first blush, you might be inclined to generalize based on those numbers that the percentage of people in Nigeria who hack and scam is inordinately high. But, when you consider that Nigeria has a population of 154 million compared to Britian’s 61 million, you realize that it’s not inordinately high at all and that there are actually more hackers per capita in the U.K. then there are in Nigeria.
