Teenagers are flocking to mobile services that peel away many of the features at the heart of Facebook. Like most trends in the tech industry, the fragmentation of social media has started with the youngest users and is working its way up the age chain.

Even If You’re Wise To Phishing, Spear Phishing Could Still Fool You

Even If You're Wise To Phishing, Spear Phishing Could Still Fool You

At this point we pretty much all know what phishing emails look like and we’re resigned to the fact that we didn’t win the Micronesian lottery. We also know that we can’t buy a machine to instantly enlarge our sexual organs no matter how much personal information we provide. It was tough but we all came together in the mid-2000s and wised up.

But “spear phishing” is a different story. The whole point is to intelligently target individuals or like-minded groups. Spear phishing banners, links and messages use personalized specifics and are designed with legitimacy in mind. Phishers do especially well if they can trick employees of a large company or members of a major organization and then capitalize on the administrative privileges of those users’ accounts. This infographic from security recruiter Via Resource shows how phishing and spear phishing attacks continue to spread and highlights vulnerable parts of the web. [Via Resource Blog]

The Threats That Literally Surround Facebook

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/threats-that-literally-surround-facebook-2013-5

The tech world is mystified and frightened by teens. At the same time, tech companies are desperately catering to them, knowing that teens will shape the industry’s future.

In a recent report from BI Intelligence, we analyze how teens and their mobile-first habits threaten to upend the tech industry.

We specifically dig into how established Internet companies like Facebook are threatened by teen audiences and their tendency to fragment across platforms.

Teenagers are flocking to mobile services that peel away many of the features at the heart of Facebook. Like most trends in the tech industry, the fragmentation of social media has started with the youngest users and is working its way up the age chain.

Right now, cross-posting softens some! of the edges of competition. For example, your Tumblr and Pinterest updates can automatically be cross-posted to Facebook. However, given the spate of conflicts between networks recently, one shouldn’t assume cross-posting will always be allowed.

As we argue in our report, we may be witnessing is the unraveling of a unitary, centralized social media landscape, dominated by Facebook, into a set of multipolar nodes. Facebook warded off the Instagram threat by buying the company, but it won’t always be possible for the company to neutralize threats with acquisitions.

This Infographic Breaks Down Everything You Need To Know About Twitter’s Data

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/infographic-breaking-down-twitter-data-2013-2

With the launch of Twitter’s advertising API and mounting suspicions of an IPO as soon as August, it’s a good time to look at how the social site grew to this point.

Between Q2 and Q4, account ownerships grew from 408 million to 485 million. Active users increased from 208 million to 288 million in that period. According to internet market research firm GlobalWebIndex, that makes Twitter the fastest-growing social platform in that period.

GlobalWebIndex created an infographic that not only shows Twitter growth between Q2 and Q4 of 2012, but it also breaks down Twitter’s data by country, device, activities, and key demographics.

It’s no secret that emerging markets are producing an increasing number of millionaires each year.

The Financialist, Credit Suisse’s digital magazine about business and economies, recently released a Global Wealth Report which looked at personal wealth around the globe. The report found that in the next five years more and more millionaires will come from countries in the developing world, such as Brazil and China.

By 2017, China, which currently has 964,000 millionaires, will have 1,901,000 millionaires—a growth of 97 percent, according to The Financialist. And Brazil, which currently has 227,000 millionaires, will have 497,000 millionaires by 2017—a growth of 119 percent. Russia and Malaysia will also see their numbers of millionaires grow over the next five years with a growth of 109 percent and 108 percent respectively.

The iPhone 5 Really Costs You $1800Though you may think the iPhone 5 only costs $200, you’re forgetting about the contract that’s tied to it. Yep, that fatty two-year, soul-selling new contract you get when you buy a new iPhone. That’s the real cost of the iPhone 5 and it can get quite expensive.

And to be completely fair, $1800 is actually a low-end estimate. That just so happens to include the cheapest plan on AT&T, which gives you no free text messages and a laughable amount of data. If we’re being honest, you’re going to need a lot more. Anywhere from $200 more if you’re on AT&T to a couple thousand dollars more if you’re on Verizon. Over the lifetime of the iPhone 5’s contract, you’ll spend anywhere from $1800 to $4800. That’s a good chunk of change.

Marketing firm Avalaunch put together all the data and made the snazzy infographic below. It’s a pretty solid estimate of how much the iPhone 5 will cost you over two years (to be fair, most smartphones cost around this price too).

Facebook beats out Pinterest and Twitter for driving the most traffic to retail sites. 

Facebook makes up for a staggering 86 percent of retail traffic, while Pinterest drives 12 percent and Twitter 3 percent, according to an infographic by commerce consultants Rich Relevance. 

To be fair, Facebook has the most users of the three. 

Still, it’s interesting to see Facebook driving so much social traffic, given recent doubts about whether its useful for retailers.

The Best Times to Shop Online If You Want The Most SavingsGrabbing the best prices is all about where and when you shop. Retailer reporting service SumAll has identified the best (and worst) days and months to find online deals and packed it all in this handy calendar infographic.

The data is compiled from over 3,000 merchants and almost half a billion transactions over four years.

It probably won’t surprise you that November offers the biggest discounts (an average of 5.99%), followed by post-holiday January (4.95%), but the calendar also warns you that March is a dismal time to shop if you’re looking for sales (2.76%).

The best days to buy are Tuesday and Thursday. Forget big savings on Sunday.

And new companies (just opened or under two years old) offer the biggest deals versus established ones. So don’t wait to shop at a new site.

Here’s the whole graphic, which includes which states offer the best deals (click to expand, right click to save):
The Best Times to Shop Online If You Want The Most Savings

Keep in mind that there are specific days and months that are best for particular shopping categories (see our best time to buy anything guide or this handy infographic). If you’re just planning your shopping in general, though, consider waiting until the days and months with the highest discounts.
