First of all, big shout out to Sean and Laurie Percival for being brand new parents. Congrats to the new family!
Second, Sean put up this awesome infographic before he became daddy, and I nearly choke myself on the sheer awesomeness…
Luke Wroblewski from LukeW Designs and a leading design leader in the field for User Experience put up a post on the growth of social networking on the mobile platform. I’m surprised that there wasn’t an infographic on it, but the recent details was pretty impressive. A couple of points highlighted were.
- Access to Facebook via mobile browser grew 112% in the past year to 25.1 million users in January 2010.
- Access to Twitter via mobile browser experienced a 347% jump to 4.7 million users in January 2010.

With the Windows Mobile coming out and the growth of Geo Location technology and subsequent apps to follow, it’s clear that mobile’s moving fast. As for the numbers, I think I’ll play around with the data and put it on the template infographic – let’s see how this turns out.
Let’s face it: Infographs are sexy, turning heads (or producing clicks and views), and creating retweets. I certain have the standard sites in my google reader: Information Aesthetics, Flowing Data, Cool Infographics, Infographic News, DataViz, Visual Complexity…
Nathan Yau of Flowing Data put up this great post last month highlighting the obvious. I think I’ll try to whip up something following this formula.
Just entered a comment to FlowingData to describe data visualization:

Marketing Charts is a great resource for various information and tidbits on the market. I was very surprised to see how much of a market YouTube has on the competitors and was even more shocked to see Hulu, so low. I don’t think that Hulu’s numbers in the chart include the impact from their SuperBowl commercial, so I’ll be curious to see where they will be at for the Feb numbers.
Even so, YouTube’s numbers are quite impressive.
