This Week in Infographics #25: It Pays to be Smart

This week we have quite a few infographics for you. Most of them have to do with being smart, hence the title. Well, not so much about being smart, but making the right decisions. The first infographic breaks down the DNA of a successful book. There are three categories of a book that are important for it to become successful: content, genres and readers.

Next up we look at the top restaurants in social media. Almost every business on the face of the earth uses social media to build their brand, I mean why not? It’s a great tool to engage customers, but there are a few companies that do it better than others. For example, Starbucks comes in first place when it comes to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

Then we go inside the Android factory, and take a look at five ways to build a profitable application. The app market is growing, and everyone seems to want to get a piece of the pie, however, it can be difficult to figure out the best way to monetize an app. This infographic would definitely help any app developer choose the right path.

Next we look at how summer impacts infrastructure. As fun as summer is, it can still have some drawbacks. Drought and higher gas prices are just to name a few.

Moving on, we look at a problem that can haunt many professionals: projects. Some get finished, but along the way there can be many obstacles. This infographic highlights why Project Management Professionals (PMPs) are the best solution for project problems.
