Getting back into the routine, it’s time for another installment of the Friday Link Session. Below you will find links to some of the content I found interesting this week. This should hold you over ’til Monday. Enjoy the weekend!
In recent weeks I’ve posted a couple great infographics on Facebook and Twitter facts and figures. Since you’ve all liked them so much, I’ve decided to try to make that a regular thing on the blog.
OnlineSchools was nice of enough to reach out to me recently regarding their stock of detailed infographics they make. They have graphics on everything ranging from art to health and business. I love posting detailed information like this and I will be posting anything I think will be useful to this community.
The graphic I’ve chosen for today details the rise of social gaming and the company Zynga, which is responsible for some of the web’s most popular games like Farmville, Cafe World, and Mafia Wars. Social gaming is a lucrative industry right now and I have a feeling it’s only going to get bigger with social networks.
Have a look at these amazing statistics. Due to the image’s size I’ve posted it after the break.
The weekend is shaping up to be a pretty good one. Normally, on Fridays I list several links to interesting articles and videos I’ve viewed over the week that I’d advise checking out over the weekend. Not this weekend.
This weekend I will be doing what most everybody else will be–watching Lost. When you think of television, it is hard to come up with a current show that has become as distinct a brand as Lost. For the last few years, it has been the favorite television show of many, and Sunday it’s all coming to an end.
Check out this short video from Square. Square is a technology that allows users to make and accept payments with mobile devices. This essentially allows any person or business to accept credit cards for their products. If this becomes popular (more like when), you will begin seeing the Square brand everywhere, which will allow you to recognize where Square payments are accepted.
What do you think of this technology? Would you be willing to incorporate Square into the selling of your products? If not, why? Answer in the comments below.
