Easing the way into another working week, here’s a nice infographic from Social Jumpstart which illustrates the volume of engagement in social networks in any given minute.
Suffering from Mondayitis? Hugging a mug of coffee like it is the elixir of life? Reaching to turn up the office heating? Well make yourself feel better (or worse) by checking out some of this infographic from Resumebear.com, which outlines some of the ‘awesome’ places to work in Silicon Valley and their staff amenities and perks:
‘A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down‘…that may work in the rose-tinted world of Mary Poppins but in reality encouraging people to take their medicine is a task that can’t be overcome with a song. A WHO report estimated that between 30 and 50% of medicines prescribed for long-term illness are not taken as directed.
Healthcare professionals and pharmaceutical marketing and PR people spend a significant amount of time developing strategies to deal with medication non-adherence (i.e. taking your medicine as frequently as you’re supposed to and for as long as you’re supposed to). With that in mind, this US infographic created by Steven Wilkins, Author and Owner of Mind the Gap, is quite interesting. It aims to “describe the ‘disconnect’ that often occurs between physicians and patients and the impact of adherence”. With stats like doctors spending just 49 seconds telling a patient what they need to know about a new medication, it provides an interesting insight into the medicine compliance issue.

Steve Olenski on Social Media Today drew my attention to these great infographics which illustrate the shift in Twitter trends in the past year.
I would have thought, what with the ‘economic crisis’ and political debate becoming more mainstream, that the volume of tweets in relation to politics would have increased between 2009 and 2010 but it has actually decreased from 7% to 3%.
Entertainment tweets also fell from 38% in 2009 to 28% in 2010 – another surprise.
