Multi Platform Social Media – diagram-by-diagram Over the years I have been creating lots of confusing, busy yet at the same time, meaningful and insightful emergent media diagrams. These attempt to help the uninitiated heritage media folk, get to grips with a multiplatform, shifting-social-media-sands, transmogodified entertainment landscape…breathe. So I have been uploading a bunch of these diagrams onto my flickr account over the past weeks, partly to make them more accessible to me too (oh the joys of the cloud) but with the creative commons tag, for all and sundry to use (attributed of course – the only way to power & fame nowadays – cackles!). Here is a short selection of the 25 or so already up, with brief descriptions – the main bunch is in a set called ‘Emergent Media’ here. The above diagram is intended to help storytellers simply understand a range of key places to distribute their story fragments or triggers online. The above is one of my favourite diagrams from way back in early 2006.

Chart/table from: The Demographics of Instagram and Snapchat Users A majority 54% of US internet users aged 18 and up now post original photos and videos online, up from 46% last year, says the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project in a new report [pdf]. As part of its survey of the photo and video landscape, the researcher explores the use of Instagram and Snapchat, finding the former adopted by 18% of cell phone owners and the latter by 9%. Predictably, both are much more heavily used by youth. Among cell phone users, fully 26% of 18-29-year-olds report using Snapchat, a figure which plummets to 5% among 30-49-year-olds, 3% of the 50-64 crowd and 2% of those 65 and older. Interestingly, there’s no real gender disparity to speak of, nor is there any real gap in adoption between whites and African-Americans.

LHC restart: 'We want to break physics' 4 March 2015Last updated at 19:15 ET By Jonathan Webb Science reporter, BBC News Inside the CMS experiment, the beam pipe is dwarfed by huge cylindrical detectors that will try to capture everything that emerges from the collisions As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) gears up for its revamped second run, hurling particles together with more energy than ever before, physicists there are impatient. Why does information flow in networks? People like Barry Wellman and Caroline Haythornthwaite have contributed significantly to advancing the analysis of the impact of networks on society. Well before Barabasi, Watts, and Strogatz arrived on the network scene, sociologists (and social psychologists) such as Granovetter, Wellman, and Milgram were developing models to understand how people connect. As a result of this work, terms like “six degrees” and “strong/weak ties” and “networked communities” have become mainstream. With an understanding of how people are connected we can also gain insight into how information flows through a network. I’m sure you’ve seen analysis of the social networks of board of directors at different companies. Valdis Krebs addresses this in Overlapping Networks:
Social Networking - Top Social Networking Sites of General Interest - Top Social Networking Social Networking continues to grow by leaps and bounds with new social networks popping up all the time.

Social Media Engagement Statistics We tend to talk about social networks in terms of size, because audience reach is one of social media’s biggest advantages. That’s why Facebook gets so much attention. With 1.2 billion monthly active users, it’s a beast. But as audiences adopt newer social networks, and people’s social activity becomes increasingly fragmented, other measures of social network activity become more important, especially for businesses trying to determine where to best allocate time and resources. How much time users spend on each social network and how engaged and interactive they are with content there are increasingly important ways of evaluating the sites. In a new report, BI Intelligence calculates an Engagement Index for top major social networks and compares their performance in terms of time-spend terms per-user, on desktop and mobile.
