You may notice that a lot of the data in this infographic is strange or misleading. Frankly, even if it looked cleaner, it still would be incorrect. What I appreciate about this graphic is that it shows that Gen Z is a disruptive force for what we think is intuitive about social media platforms. While the utility of social remains, what they use and how they use it are sometimes quite different from previous generations.

Let me know what you think about this one.

I aspire to give people something to think about rather than tell them what to do. My favorite Google Alert is "social media research," I am increasingly compelled by Gen Z, and I appreciate good writers agnostic of where they write. At one time I was Kred's 12th most influential social media blogger and Klout's most influential person on the topic of David Hasselhoff. Transplant from Seattle living in Cincinnati. Haven't entirely adopted the local sports teams yet.

Is the man laying on the yellow bed a picture of you Jim? If so, it’s kind of strange. If not, I’m at a loss as to why it’s even there.
