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. Though Vevo has done very well on it’s own, YouTube has played a huge factor in the site’s growth, as YouTubers can stream Vevo clips and many viewers initially discovered the music video site because of videos they watched on YouTube.

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.

Huge Infographics Design Resources: Overview, Principles, Tips and Examples

Imagine what would happen if you were speeding on a highway, and trying to read a traffic sign that contains too much information, would you be able to read the information exactly? Compare if you were just seeing a place name, a mileage, or an arrow-sign, which one would be more effective for you? Well, that’s just a simple instance.

Simply due to the unclear information given, anyone who sees and reads it could miss the important message on it. Data visualization to overcome this has been used worldwide for many years, where a complex piece of information needs to be delivered fast and clear.

Infographics Design Resources

We can see in recent years that patterns of communication are becoming more effective, delivering information that people need to know. Nowadays the information itself appears more prominently in a conceptual graphic model called infographics, in the hope that people will understand better through data visualization and information. But sometimes it still confuses people as to the real message that the author intends to convey to the public, which, in the end, will result in misleading information. In this article we’ll talk about infographics.

Our memory always loses some stuff that we do not use regularly. This is something all of us know. This is why some of us do not know fractions anymore and cannot explain them to our children; this is also why we cannot sometimes remember the names of certain celebrities or places.

What we need is something that helps us revise everything we do not want to forget. What we need is Headmagnet.

Do Job Hoppers Really Make the Best Employees? Penelope Trunk Thinks So.

In the 20th century one thing you didn’t want was a reputation as a job hopper. But in the 21st century? Penelope Trunk says it’s a different story. In a blog called Why Job Hoppers Make the Best Employees, she points to the statistics that tell us that people in their 20s change jobs approximately every 18 months. And people in their 30s change jobs frequently as well, although at a slower pace than the Gen-Yers. [Más…]

But let’s reframe this old issue. Job hoppers are not quitters, nor are they merely opportunists. Penelope argues that job-hoppers make better employees and are generally more satisfied with their work life. So if you think job-hopping is bad stuff, change your thinking.

How To: Get Insights Of Audiences On YouTube | Online Media Gazette


Before the start of any campaign, it is vital for marketers do some research on the demographics of their target audience. Marketing research is simply a process of systematic gathering, recording and analysis of data about issues relating to marketing products and services. I came across this tool by YouTube to get insights on potential audiences.

I believe that by sharing this tool with everyone, marketers or even everyone can easily find out the size and interests of their potential audiences. The tool lets you check which sorts of people use YouTube, and what sorts of videos subsections are being watched.

For this example, we’re going to look at statistics from the United States.

Demographics

demograhicsus

From the data churned out, we found that the highest age group that are utilizing YouTube are those between the 18 and 24 years old; making up 43.5% of the group. This is then followed by those in the 25 to 34 years old age group; making up 27.9% of it.

It is also possible to find the percentage of males and females in the U.S that are using YouTube; 68% and 32% respectively.

Interests

interestsus

The tool also lets you find out the popularity of videos in certain categories amongst the people that you’re targeting. On the y-axis, the figure ‘x’ represents the likelihood an average YouTube user watches that type of video.

You can also narrow down the categorical search to specific ones from the main menu; rather than having a whole lot of data that are pointless to you.

Search Terms

keywordssearchterms
I’m sure everyone knows the importance of key words and the above shows the most searched term users are inputting on YouTube’s search queries. If you have a video that you would like to have a lot of hits, be sure to key in highly searched AND relevant keywords into your video tags.

Conclusion

Personally, this tool will be very useful for me in determining the demographics and relevant information of my targeted audiences. In what ways would the tool help you? Do share with us.
