How Social Media has Changed Our Society (Infographic)

Via: https://www.meltwater.com/blog/how-social-media-has-changed-our-society/

Meltwater.com posted an infograph that allows users to take a look at how social media has changed our society. You can click the link above to take a look at the infograph however, I decided to use bulletpoints and discuss what the infograph is talking about.

·      In the U.S. 1/3 of couples tie the knot having met online.

·      72% of Internet users are active on social media.

·      YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine in the world.

·      1 in 3 women aged between 18-34 check media before going to the bathroom in the morning.

·      If Facebook were a country, it would be the biggest country in the world. With a population of 1.44 billion.

·      80% of photos taken in 2013 in the UK remain in a digital format.

·      LinkedIn welcomes 2 new members every second.

·      3,350,000 is the number of retweets Ellen Degeneres’s famous Oscars selfie received.

·      Britons spend 62 million hours a day on Facebook and Twitter- that’s an average one hour for every adult and child.

·      53% of millennials would rather lose their sense of smell than their technology.

As a millennial, I’m not sure if I would rather lose my sense of smell than my technology however, I found these facts to be simply amazing.

Which facts did you find to be the most interest?

So this may be info overload but...

Hey everybody this is Emily Wick from art-by-emily.weebly.com

I decided to make myself a tumblr account to act as a sketch blog. I tend to do a lot of doodling and instead of completely filling my website with endless doodles I can put them all here! This also means a greater variety of doodles; instead of just the “nice doodles”, ones that I clearly worked on for more than five minutes, I could include the messy ones, the preliminary work for other pieces, and other progress work.

I’ve also made a Facebook account, mostly so that people have as many ways of getting in contact with me as possible because I’m an accommodating person and you guys deserve it! 

You can of course still follow my Twitter account which I’ll continue using for updates and general whining about art. 

The nice thing about social networks these days is that they like to work together, so through some settings searching, all of my accounts are linked. Lets say you only follow my Twitter or Facebook but still want to see the doodles, not a problem, whenever I post something here it will also be posted as a link on my Twitter and Facebook!

…unless that’s a bit too much and I can just link weekly or something.

I hope to start posting stuff soon!

My cousin sent me these screenshots of this guy online on this site called meetme and he’s been saying some really racist things and has made comments about how he shreds applications of black people and that he’s doing society a favor and that his boss is also racist. If this guy is being for real his business needs to be shut down immediately so please spread this around and see if anyone recognizes him. I know the pic is blurry but that’s the only one he’s posted. Anything can help!! He resides in Charlotte but his current location as of now is Emory Gap, TN
