Citizens Demand More Use Of Digital And Social Media By Police – Infographic

Do you Like Bones on Facebook? Do you live-tweet Dexter every week? Turns out, social media users want to be involved with the real-life fight against crime, as well.

Approximately 92% of citizens from across six countries want to support their police force, according to a June 2012 survey by Accenture.

Of the 1,300 participants, 88% percent believe they have an important role in preventing crime, but only 16% feel well-informed.

The survey, which spanned Canada, the U.S., the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain, highlights the relationship between social media, police and citizenry. You’ll find its results in the infographic.

English Is The Language Of International Business And Education – Infographic

English language has become a global means of communication, it is not only the most widely written (counting scientific articles, periodical and the impressing fact that it is a common language of the Internet), it’s also spoken throughout different international conversations, no matter whether they are official or business meetings, or just a casual skype talk.

The Evolution Of Olympic Communication – Infographic

We recently took a look at how the exponential growth of social media since the last Summer Olympics in 2008 will reshape this year’s Games in profound ways. But tracing the evolution of Olympic communication back more than 2,000 years proves just as fascinating.

Forget livestreams, score alerts and Twitter — back in the day, Olympic results were delivered by homing pigeon. Then the advent of the “modern” Games in 1896 came during the same year as the introduction of the wireless telegraph. The first Olympic radio broadcast came more than a quarter century later, in 1924, and 1936 saw (get it?) the first live telecast. In 1960, the Games were broadcast worldwide for the first time ever. Finally, the 1996 Games in Atlanta were billed as the “Internet Olympics” — offering the first real sign of what was to come in 2012.

The network solutions company Acme Packet recently dug up all these stats and more from a variety of sources from around the web to produce the infographic below.

Among Acme Packet’s other notable findings: a billion people will receive updates, get results and watch events via digital devices this summer; mobile traffic worldwide is expected to increase by 211% during the London Games; and the Olympics’ estimated operating cost this year would be enough to cover more than 10.5 billion hours of international Skype calls.

Even more impressive though? By the time Rio 2016 rolls around, there will be more mobile devices than people in the world, and this summer’s “first social Olympics” will seem antiquated by comparison.
