This Week in Infographics #9: A Social Media Timeline

This Week in Infographics #9: A Social Media Timeline

Obviously the theme of this week’s infographics is social media. We begin with Mark Zuckerberg and a Facebook timeline of his career based on the movie Social Network. Then we look at the accomplishments of another technological genius, Steve Jobs, and how an Apple a day really does keep the viruses away. Next, we will explore the latest craze that will inevitably change our way of life just as the previous advances did. But is all of this greatness putting a damper on our creativity? Turns out we may be facing a war between productivity and creativity. Those joining the workforce have completely different views from those running the show. Finally, our baby millennials know nothing before computers and social media. How will the leaders of tomorrow view privacy and corporate mentality in a world where they live out loud and would rather have time on their side than make millions? 1. | Social Life: A Timeline of Life of Mark Zuckerberg   2. | Just how big is Apple 3. | Wake up Call   4. | Global Creativity Gap   5. | The Millennial Teenager   Courtesy of: Online...

Source Source Source Apple made a slew of announcements today at their Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.  Perhaps most expected was the release of iCloud, their cloud computing service.  It allows syncing of just about everything you may store on your multiple devices: apps, email, calendars, contacts, documents, books, photos, and music.  It does this with little effort from the user, following Apple’s “it just works” motto.  The ability to sync all of these things across devices is huge for Apple, but music in particular sticks out above the rest.  Apple helped change the music industry when it introduced iTunes in 2001, and many expected iCloud to do something similar.  With Google’s recently released Music Beta and Amazon’s Cloud Drive, the world has been waiting to see what Apple has up their sleeve. Amazon Cloud Drive was first to market when it was released last March.  For a price, Amazon allows users to upload their music libraries so they can be streamed down to any device with a web browser.  Google offers the same type of service with a few differences.  First off, it’s free while it’s still in beta.  Google plans to charge for its use at some point, but for the time being it’s free to anyone who receives an invite.  The second big difference is how they measure your use.  Amazon determines how much you will pay based on how many gigabytes your music takes up, giving you the first 5GB free.  Google, on the other hand, currently measure’s by the number of songs.  In Music Beta, you’re allowed to store up to 20,000 songs...
