Resources for What Folks (And You) Do Online

This chart (aka infographic, but really isn’t it just a chart?) shows changes in online behaviors (e.g., email, search,), some of the leading companies’ shares of activities, and the amount of time folks spend doing various things online. Wolfram Alpha lets you know how much YOU! YES YOU!! (insert reference to meat and pudding please), you spend on Facebook. The app allows you to datamine yourself, arguably just as Facebook does. I expect that someone could do some interesting papers with this app or at least confirm what we suspect: Facebook knows much about us; it will scramble to turn that into money. If ads don’t fly, expect more selling of data wholesale. Yep, I said it. More on that in another post.
