The purpose of this data visualization chart of Facebook was to show the daily activity that was used throughout the year.
The data isn’t exactly accurate; not all companies show their figures and most don’t reveal the ratio of manual laborers to executives. But some interesting patterns are shown and it’s clear that some races use theses social networks more than others.
The most interesting one is gender. It is known that girls use social media and networks more than guys.
“In the last 12 months, Facebook, Apple, eBay and Microsoft hired 1% more women. LinkedIn increased their female staff by 3%. Google’s gender ratio stayed the same. Microsoft gained 3% non-white employees, Facebook 2%; while Google, Apple and eBay increased their non-white staff by 1%. LinkedIn lost 3% of its non-white employees.
Within the companies who expanded their ethnic diversity, Asian staff accounted for the majority of the increase, while the ratio of Hispanic employees remained static. Apple registered the biggest jump: 3% increase in Asian hires.” ( Information is beautiful, 2016)
I thought seeing my activity of Facebook within a year would be interesting to see how much I engage with social media. Sometimes you don’t realize how much you engage in social networks until you see the amount time you spend on it within a year, month, week or even a day. Journalism 440 assignments
