It’s been awhile since I really went on a Tumblr binge & brought you the best infographics I could find. I may have gone overboard with today’s line-up of social media-themed infographics, but it’s easy to do using TumbleOn HD – Tumblr App for Images. The app knows me so well that it opens directly to the tag for infographics.
So, let’s get started looking at & analyzing what I found. I have a lot of questions for you, too!
Twitter Psych 101
I really like the information in this 1st infographic, but the styling & fonts could use a little finesse, in my opinion.
I think the part that will interest many readers is why people say they unfollow someone. The #1 reason given is tweeting too much. I can’t say I haven’t unfollowed someone for that reason (sorry for the double negative, I have unfollowed someone for tweeting too much).
Computer users might say, “why don’t you just ignore those people,” but mobile users know that when you have notifications turned on for each tweet, too much tweeting is just really annoying. But, there’s a lot of gray in this area. Too much for me might not be too much for The Associated Press, for instance. And, tweets of substance are less annoying, in my opinion, than tweets that are just 2 people talking to each other.
What do you think? Have you ever unfollowed anyone? Why?
This 2nd infographic has information based on Twitter usage in the UK, but I think that the results are probably generalizable outside of the UK, as well.
I found it interesting that Twitter is so extremely mobile both in device used to access it & where it’s used & yet also so integrated into home life activities like watching TV & going to bed (what are people tweeting at bedtime, by the way?).
I’m interested to know how many of you follow brands on Twitter & how many you follow? I think I currently follow more brands on Facebook & more news & technology sources on Twitter, but maybe I should think about switching some things up.
This 1 may be a little outdated, but I liked it nonetheless.
Many, many people are going to say, “I use Facebook & that’s not who I am,” but remember that this infographic is a profile of the AVERAGE Facebook fan who likes SxSW based on statistics of what everyone who is a fan of SxSW likes. So, calm down!
Be a Good Sharer
Now, let’s look at what makes quality content that gets shared on Facebook. This infographic is targeted toward brands & marketers, but it has a lot of information that could make your shares better & more well-received, too.
- Thoughtful posts that are short(er), speak to who you are, & that are entertaining are always going to get more likes & comments & possibly shares.
- I’ve seen just a ton of studies & infographics also claiming that “calls to action” (i.e. asking people to retweet, share, etc.) work really well & actually get people to do it more. That said, I absolutely hate the posts & photos that say something & then basically dare you to share & state that 99% of my friends won’t share this. It’s high-tech bullying.
- I’ve personally found that people really seem to enjoy thoughtfully culled educational content. By this I mean sharing interesting studies covered by news sources, science & psychology news, & odd tidbits. I’ve started many a good conversation this way on Facebook. Have you noticed the same thing?
What you get from this infographic will really depend on who you are. My readers who are also marketers or developers are going to get something completely different from it than regular Facebook using readers. But, whatever you use Facebook for, I thought this was interesting.
Social Media Safari
Now, this infographic is just pure fun! But, am I just way out of the loop? What are 9GAG & Archify?
Bonus Infographic: Geeks & Nerds
Whenever I go on a TumbleOn binge, I always come back with something that doesn’t fit in with whatever I’m writing, but that I like a lot anyway. So, here’s today’s bonus infographic. It has nothing to do with social media (unless you want to debate whether more geeks than nerds tweet), but I want to run it & it’s my blog
Well, that’s it for this edition of I Went on a Tumblr Binge & All I Got Were These Fabulous Infographics. Stay tuned for the next time I get bored & stumble onto Tumblr.
That’s it for me today. Until later, …
