Icons of the Web

Icons of the Web
December 18, 2013: The Nmap Project is pleased to release our new and improved Icons of the Web project! Since our free and open source Nmap Security Scanner software is all about exploring networks at massive scale, we started by scanning the top million web sites for 2013 (as ranked by the analytics company Alexa). We then downloaded each site's favicon—the small icon displayed next to a site title in browser bookmarks and tabs. We scaled the icons in proportion to each site's monthly reach (popularity) and placed them in a giant collage. This is an update to a similar project we performed in 2010. Since your web browser would likely choke on a 5 gigapixel image, we've created the interactive viewer below. To find your favorite site (or your own site), type in the domain name (example: reddit.com) and hit search. Our 2010 Favicon Project was a huge success and that data is still fully browseable here. Perhaps this visual comparison is the best way to demonstrate the changes: Related:  Web Statistics

Accroche-toi au pinceau de la contribution, j?enl?ve l??chelle de la participation ? Article ? OWNI, Digital Journalism Participer, collaborer, contribuer, le web 2.0 permet différents modes d'interaction. Mais depuis 2006, les comportements en ligne ont changé. Olivier Ertzscheid analyse leur évolution à l'aide de l'échelle "social technographics" du cabinet Forrester. Prologue Web “participatif”, “collaboratif”, “contributif”, voilà 3 termes qui, depuis l’avènement du web dit “2.0″ sont souvent indistinctement et abusivement employés. D’après le trésor de la langue française : la “contribution” peut être définie comme la “part apportée à une œuvre commune“. La proximité sémantique des deux termes est évidente, même si dans le contexte du web 2.0 il est possible d’envisager des formes de collaboration non-nécessairement contributives. la “consultation” est “l’action de consulter quelque chose, de l’examiner pour y chercher un renseignement, une information, une indication“. Voici ces trois échelles Celle de 2006, correspondant donc aux débuts du web social. Celle de 2009 … Cadre d’analyse Interprétation

Ce que représente vraiment Apple sur le marché | Stan&Dam, LE bl mai252010 AT Internet évalue les parts de marché des OS en fonction des visites sur un panel de sites web surveillés, ce qui donne une vision assez réaliste de leur importance en Europe via la présence en ligne. Depuis quelques années déjà, Microsoft décline lentement (il n’y a pas le feu au lac non plus) pour se rapprocher ostensiblement de la barre des 90% de part de marché. Côté Apple, c’est +50% de progression en passant de 4,5 à presque 7% de part de marché. Cela veut dire plusieurs choses : - Apple a réussi sa diversification dans les outils nomades - Il serait faux de croire que la marque vend plus d’ordinateurs - En revanche son OS se diffuse plus (et crée un écosystème favorable puisqu’il faut un Mac pour développer pour iPhone et iPad). Côté HP ou Dell, ils essayent de s’ouvrir les veines avec des RJ45. Source : Mac4Ever

Les 6 typologies d'internautes - Social Media, Social CRM, Community Management, Stratégie Internet par Cédric Deniaud Lorsque l'on parle de participation sur Internet, on a tendance à ressortir deux données : La règle des 90 / 9 / 1% (90% d'internautes spectateurs, 9% qui réagissent sur des contenus et 1% qui produisent des contenus. Les réseaux sociaux ont partiellement remis en cause cette règle car il convient de différencier les 90 et les 9% plus fortement puisque nous constatons des comportements différents.Les différents niveaux de participation : vous avez certainement déjà vu l'échelle de participation des médias sociaux de Forrester Research (voir visuel ci-dessous), qui était l'un des enseignements majeurs du livre Groundswell de Charlène Li et Josh Bernoff, il y a quelques années. Une autre présentation est le tableau de la participation que je trouve plus parlant (Les 4 niveaux de participation sur Internet). Les typologies selon TNS Sofres Toutefois, il convient de voir les usages d'Internet plus largement que la simple participation pour prendre en compte tous les internautes.

Kids' Media Use The top 100 sites on the internet Explore this interactive graphic to find out which are the biggest sites on the internet, as measured by the Nielsen company. This feature is part of SuperPower, a season of programmes exploring the power of the internet. About this data The data used to generate the interactive treemap visualisation were collected by the Nielsen company and covers the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Brazil, US and Australia. The categories - such as retail, social networks, search/portal - were defined by the BBC. The maps were produced using the Prefuse Flare software, developed by the University of California Berkeley. Did you find this graphic useful? Huge number of Web sites barely visited, report finds | Business Editor's Note: The following article is reprinted from TechWorld. The Internet, famously, has a long tail, but a new analysis has revealed another characteristic of this vast slew of obscure Web sites. Huge numbers of them are never visited. Analyzing visits to several million Web sites during the last quarter of 2009 for its State of the Web report (registration required), cloud security startup Zscaler created a Hilbert curve-generated "heatmap" of active and inactive IPv4 sites from real customer data. As expected, the grid that emerged from this showed clusters of active sites as white dots, a large volume of reserved or non-routed addresses in gray, but it was the sea of dark that loomed largest of all. "It's a fascinating view which exposes just how vast the Internet truly is. Part of the explanation for what does not get visited in Zscaler's report might also be explained in relation to what does.

The Rumors Are True: We Spend More And More Time Online Survey results published by Harris Interactive suggest that adult Internet users are now spending an average of 13 hours a week online. About 14% spends 24 or more hours a week online, while 20% of adult Internet users are online for only two hours or less a week. To put things in perspective: Harris surveyed 2,029 adults by telephone for an entire week in July and October 2009, and has been doing these types of polls since 1995. Harris concludes that the average hours spent online have increased from 7 hours from 1999 to 2002, to between 8 and 9 hours in 2003 to 2006, and surged after that. There was a sudden spike in time spent online in 2007 when the average hours spent on the Web increased to 11 hours. The age groups that spend the most time online are those aged 30-39 (18 hours) and those aged 25-29 (17 hours) and 40-49 (17 hours). How about you: how much time do you spend online (excluding e-mail) a week on average? (Image credit: dalbera / Flickr)
