Hello readers! This post is written as Challenge 9 of the 2010 Blogging Challenge.
So, for Challenge 9, Miss W. has given us links to some infographics about teenagers and their use of the web. The infographics covered a wide variety of topics, with one of them being the growth of Facebook over the past 6 years, like how it started out in 2004 as a Harvard-only networking site. Now, Facebook has over 400 million users worldwide! Also, the infographic on Facebook includes a lot more information than just how many users there are – you should check it out! I myself don’t actually use any social networking site… they sound a bit strange to me!
The use of cellphones has also changed a lot in the recent years. There once was a time when the only thing you could do on a cellphone was talk to people; now, you can access the Internet, use Facebook and Twitter and many other things that cellphones couldn’t do before. Devices like the iPhone have truly changed the way you look at a cellphone. I also don’t have a cellphone or any of those fancy gadgets either.
I think that the most nteresting infographic is the one that fits people into what type of Internet user they are. It has a variety of things that people are doing on the Internet, with all ages having a different percentage of use. I fit under the type of user that’s titled “Creator”. this means that you publish web pages or write blogs. Basically, it is the group of people that upload work onto the Internet.
So, what kind of Internet user are you? Do you think that the infographics are interesting?
