[Infographic] The State of Social Media 2012

 

Produced by the SEO Company and NowSourcing, hepatitis the State of Social Media 2012 captures, viagra in a visually appealing manner, some of the major events of this past half year. If I were to summarize it, 2012 is all about money (Facebooks’ IPO, Instagram purchase, closing of Piknik by Google), power and dissent (Anonymous being Time’s Most Influential Person, Koni’s campaign, and Barack Obama’s embracing of G+’s Hangouts and hacking of his official campaign pages).

While I like the MayanSpace calendar idea, I think the first half of 2012 brings some more important questions than a predicted end of the world as we know it. These include invitations to revisit utopian or critical views of the internet and assess their balance as well as invitations to investigate how various groups are using the social web to formulate their messages, organize themselves or avoid and counter-act their counterparts actions. Policy, freedom, freedom of expression, access, ownership and how these are traded, highlited or diminished by financial or national security interests are other areas that the first half of 2012 gave us plenty of opportunity to question…

Perhaps the second half of 2012 will helps us answer some of these questions.
