Want People to Return Your Emails? Avoid These Words [INFOGRAPHIC] Next time you write an email subject line, think twice about the words you're using.
Loading your message with words such as "confirm," "join," "press," or "invite" is not a good idea if you want a response, says data from Baydin, the makers of email plugin Boomerang. Baydin recently extracted data from five million emails its users handled — either using the company's "email game" or scheduled for later via Boomerang. It found that some subject-line words, such as "apply" and "opportunity," got more responses than words from the aforementioned list. Its data also suggests the best time to send emails is before work. Users who scheduled messages to read later, using Boomerang, most often wanted to deal with them around 6 a.m. Already sending emails packed with "opportunity" at 6 a.m. and not getting a response? Baydin's average email game player deleted about half of the 147 messages he or she received each day.

The Smartest way to surf the stream. Infographic: A Look At The Size And Shape Of The Geosocial Universe In 2011. Thanks to Jesse Thomas of interactive design agency JESS3, we now have an updated look at the structure of the geosocial universe as it exists in anno domini 2011.
It wasn’t so long ago that the International Astronomical Union booted Pluto out of the solar system or that MySpace was overtaking Yahoo! And Google as the most-visited site in the U.S. Well, a few rotations around the sun later, and the overall shape of the geosocial universe has changed dramatically. New stars have been born and others have been scattered out across the cold recesses of Internet space. Today, Myspace is sputtering, Skype is part of the Microsoft solar system, and LinkedIn is being traded publicly. As you’ll see, Thomas’ infographic shows the current size of major social networks as well as the other well-known online services we use on a daily basis relative to their peers.
Some other notable trends in the geosocial universe, courtesy of JESS3: Everything You Missed From the Mashable Media Summit [PICS & VIDEOS] This year's sold-out Mashable Media Summit showcased an eclectic range of content delivered by leaders in the media and technology industry.
