Group 1 Infographic Analysis
So this is Group 1’s Graphic analysis and we decided to analyze the “Map of online Communities” which depicted the daily social activity of a community.
Information – This infograhic is from xkcd a webcomic site. The data was gathered in 2010 and the data shows that Facebook is the biggest active social network and what was suprising was that farmville a site which i have never heard of was second in activity, even more than twitter. The Sea’s show the kind of posts that the users make and the biggest one seems to be the “sea of opinion”
The second map focuses more on the total activity is in a community. The left side is call “Blogsphere” which i presume is about blogs in the community and the right side contains the “forums”.
Aesthetics – First of all the the way the author presented the information was superb. There doesn’t really need to be long paragraphs of explaination. The picture clearly explains alot of data through easy maps which everyone can look and understand. I think the fact that they used a globe map and seas made it even more intresting to look and and catch out eyes.
