Written by  | jeffbullas.com

 

YouTube is a modern phenomena. The social media  platform’s original concept is rumoured to have been inspired by the idea of being a video dating site with the unlikely title of “Tune In Hook Up”. In the end it launched as a simple video sharing site that has helped reinvent the web from a one way static channel to an interactive web eco-system (along with social networking channels such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter) that has enticed and compelled us to engage globally with other internet users using a variety of rich multi-media and social sharing platforms.50 Awesome YouTube Facts and Figures

Infographics: How to Strike the Elusive Balance between Data and Visualization

They started out as a social media experiment and then suddenly everyone wanted a piece.

A couple years back, if you dropped the word ‘Infographic’ or ‘Dataviz’ in a conversation, you would have been greeted by a good number of confused looks even if you were among other web designers.

Today, so many infographics have gone viral that it’s practically impossible to ignore them. You’ll find them tweeted by your friends who want to share an interesting new find, promoted by companies eager to display their growth trends and utilized by even the White House for its progress reports.

No matter what you are searching for online, whether employment statistics or endangered animals, you are sure to find an infographic for it. If you, miraculously, aren’t able to recall any that you have seen, take a look at this list of the 10 best infographics of 2011 via Nowsourcing to catch up.
Infographics spice up ‘boring’ data

Infographics are useful because they turn historically lengthy and tedious bulks of data in to something that’s much more interesting: a visual.

As a society heading into the new decade, we want to read less and see more. While this doesn’t bode too well for book publishers, it’s opened a whole new creative area for designers.

An increasing number of companies and clients are recognizing the benefits of infographics and want their data jazzed up and dressed for the prom. They know that their assiduously compiled information has a far better chance of being read, appreciated, shared and widely circulated if it looks less like an annual report and more like the next big meme. And if you aren’t convinced yet, here’s an infographic on why you should use infographics.
You will need your existing skills. And more.

While the graphics used in infographics have become more eye-catching and sophisticated, they are not too different in purpose from the charts and graphs we used to make in high school. After all, the objective is still to present data in a more visually engaging and accessible way.

However, print and web designers are having a hard time transferring their existing skills to infographics because, as the many aspiring infographics designers will tell you, designing good infographics isn’t as simple as it looks. Sure, you still need the same essential aesthetic and technical skills but you should also be able to effectively translate data into visuals. Most importantly, you need to ensure that the infographic acts as an informative tool and not as a visual distraction.
The 7 rules of great infographic design…

Designing By Numbers: Data Analysis for Web Designers

Designing By Numbers: Data Analysis for Web Designers

Judging what’s best for an audience is never far from the web designer’s mind. The ability to predict whether a web design will soar like an eagle or sink like the Titanic is among the most subjective and complex measurements you will encounter.

While resources that explain best practices exist, and your visitors contacting you about serious issues and offering you feedback relating to your site will occur if you have the proper mechanisms in place — it’s ultimately your responsibility to be proactive and research, investigate, and determine the what, why and how to ensure widespread usability.
Designing by Numbers

Before we examine the types of statistical information you should be looking at — and the relevance they have to your web design projects — we first need to go over the 3 single-word questions that relate directly to all the design decisions you will make.

These 3 questions are ultimately at the heart of your research, analytics and motivation behind designing by the numbers.

What, why, and how is a simple design process that:

1. Defines what the issue is
2. Proves why it is an issue
3. Determines how to fix the issue with the optimal solution (if it is an issue)

What?

Of all the questions that may enter the mind of a web designer, “What?” is probably the word that relates to the task at hand. The process of understanding relevance and the usefulness of information explicitly relates to the decisions we undertake.

* What do site users need?
* What things frustrate site users?
* What can I do in this design to accomplish the site’s objectives?
* What’s wrong with the site?
* What’s right about the site?
* What can be made better?

OMG: Bieber Trounces Gaga in Twitter List Rankings

In last week’s bucket of ongoing API enhancements, Twitter provided a means to determine the number of lists in which a user is listed.

This is yet another way to measure popularity, fame, influence, status, etc., and Fan Page List has implemented this count on its site and we’ll show you some results after the jump.

The top ten ranked by number of lists is somewhat different than the top ten by total number of Twitter followers. Demi Lovato, CNN Breaking News and Selena Gomez appear when sorted by number of lists, but not when sorted by number of followers. On that list, they are replaced by Kim Kardashian, Oprah Winfrey and John Mayer.

Vevo Traffic Up 62 Percent, Thanks To YouTube

Vevo is one of the fastest growing video sites of all time, having built themselves up to a whopping 48 million unique visitors in June, only half a year after their launch in December 2009. According to recent statistics released by the video site, Vevo’s traffic has grown 62 percent since the site launched at the end of last year.

According to Vevo statistics published by MediaBeat, the site is currently attracting 62 percent more unique monthly viewers in the United States than they did when they first launched. Over the months they have surpassed ABC, MTV, NBC Universal, Hulu, CBS Interactive and Myspace in the number of viewers and continue to grow.
