Welcome - [Exclusif] 78% des grandes villes s'emparent de Facebook Avec un taux de 78%, le doute n’est plus permis : les grandes villes se sont bel et bien emparées de Facebook. Le phénomène est d’autant plus net que la dernière étude, réalisée en 2010, montrait une présence encore très minoritaire des grandes villes de plus de 100000 habitants. Seule 25% d’entre elles animait une Fan page. ParisLyonGrenobleBesançonClermont-Ferrand Taux d’engagement, le vrai critère - « Mais pour estimer la réussite d’une page, il ne suffit pas de calculer le nombre de fans », avertit Frank Confino directeur de l’agence Adverbia. « En 2010, nous nous limitions à cet aspect car Facebook ne permettait pas de faire autre chose. nombre de « like »,contenus partagés,commentaires. « Ces critères permettent de juger la manière dont les internautes réagissent à l’information diffusée », estime Frank Confino. La question avec « cet écran de fumée, cette nébuleuse », c’est quel va être le comportement de ces pages à l’approche des prochaines élections en 2014, par exemple ?

Datavisualization The Best #CityReads of 2012 - Jobs & Economy It's not just your lousy memory: the end of 2012 was much busier than the beginning. Just since July, we've seen a U.S. presidential election, a once-in-four-centuries hurricane, four horrific mass shootings, riots and warfare across the Middle East. Our #Cityreads of the year follow the news cycle -- into a high-rise housing project after Sandy and the Republican party's relationship with cities -- but they also veer off course, into the weirder corners of rail construction, charter cities, and more. Over the past year we've tried to make our #Cityreads reflect the breadth of subjects that accompanies so universal a concept. These are some of the best stories about cities we read this year. Shorter reads Jobs and Economy “U.S. Why does Europe -- land of regulation and labor power -- build transit projects faster and better than the U.S. does?

Index Mundi - Country Facts Where to Find Open Data on the Web Today, a story on Techmeme caught our eye. It was entitled "We Need a Wikipedia for data," and the article, written by X-Googler Bret Taylor, discussed the difficulty of finding open data sets on the internet, something which could spur innovation, allowing programmers to build new applications the likes of which have never been seen before. What was interesting about this story, in addition to, obviously, the concept of a Data Wiki itself, was the amazing and insightful commentary around this concept, not just on the blog, but all over the net, something which led to the discovery of some pretty good data sources that are already available. In Bret's story, he mentioned some of the common data sources currently available, like the US Census Bureau's map data and the Reuters corpus, but his commenters came up with a few more. (See? This is why blog comments matter). In addition, as CNet and Ryan Stewart's blog spread the story, more people chimed in with suggestions. Jigsaw

The Real-Time Data City is now Real (in Singapore) Next to their established offices in Boston and Milan, MIT Senseable Lab is now also active in Singapore, where they just launched an impressive exhibition [] with five different graphical perspectives into Singapore's social, economic and mobility patterns. The five visualizations are all based on real-time data recorded and captured by a vast system of communication devices, microcontrollers and sensors. What seems to be in the pipeline is an open API to allow others access to the rich data streams: "The exhibition is just the beginning of something that aims to develop into an open platform for the management of urban real-time data and the engagement of developer communities in writing innovative applications for the city." "Hub of the World" shows the ships and containers arriving and leaving Singapore. "Isochronic Singapore" deformes a street map of the city proportional to its travel time. The exhibition runs from April 8th until May 1st at Singapore Art Museum.
