Infographic analysis

For the group 8(Rodnie, Alex,Delilahand Jay) , we chose  Facebook as our infographic analysis assignment. I take account into the TOP 5 section as  the main content to analyze.

Facebook has not only become the greatest social networking system for people community, but also become one of the best website to wisely publish advertisements. You may have ever searched your favorite brand, singer, or TV show. It is more familiar way to know the information of your interest; moreover, you can leave your opinions about them, and even can communicate with other people who have the same interest as you. Publisher can know the real-time evaluation of the app or topic. Application and advertisements on Facebook is like domino. Once a person knows and recommends the application, the app is getting known for relatives of the person. It is like domino effects.

In the TV show on Facebook, ‘Family Guy’ is the most liked (38 millions), and then follows as Simpsons (35 millions), South Park (34 millions), SpongeBob (28 millions), and House (25 millions). This result is totally depends on personal like. In fact, I personally like Simpsons more than Family Guy. The reason why so many people are liked it because they can have comment and figure out which episode is brilliant or stupid. They can express their opinions with understandable relatives on that.

In the Musicians, Eminem (47 millions) is ranked first on Facebook. Increments of musicians liked will be based on the musician’s actions such as publishing the new song, and making a scandal. Of course, Eminem is one most famous Hip-Hop musician; however, it seems that the famousness is not always result of increments of liked on Facebook.

Increments of active users in applications of Facebook are directly influenced by people’s interest. Ranking of application is; CityVille (76 millions), The Sims Social (65 millions), Static HTML: iflame tabs (61 millions), Adventure World (38 millions), FarmVille (34 millions). Like showing the result, game applications are placed in high positions. The game applications are something like creating users’ own city, firm, and world. For some people, it may sound boring game, but the good point of these applications is that users can share their situation in the application to the other users. It has similarity with online games. The applications, which users can create originality and share it tend to be popular.

Increment of active users in application developers is closely related to increment of active users in application. The ranking of the application developers is; Zynga (263 millions), Electronic Arts (99 millions), Mensing (61 millions), Microsoft (50 millions), and Wooga (40 millions). Zynga provides CityVille, which has largest numbers of active user. Zynga provides not only CityVille, but also many popular applications.

  2. I like your idea of a domino effect to describe the influence a network like Facebook has on moving opinion and action among users. I’d not considered it this way.

    I think it would be useful to include an image of the portion of the infographic you are analyzing in your post.

    Another thing I’d like to see is links to the sources you came across while doing research for your analysis. Did you make any effort to confirm the numbers reported on the infographic?
