How Vinyl Records Made Their Comeback (+infographic)

Only a few years ago vinyl records were close to being presumed dead with record-low sales and a rise of digital music being the main culprit. Fast forward to 2015 and we’re back in an age where the vinyl album sales are just as good as when they were in their prime in the early 90s but what happened? Why are vinyl records making a comeback?

Liberty Games seem to be determined to find out as they’ve just released an infographic with their findings on just how well vinyl is doing these days. In the UK, it’s reported that in 2014 physical releases (CDs, vinyl’s, etc.) still made up half of album sales – showing that interest for a physical product is still there.

A similar situation has also happened elsewhere too. In the US, record sales have increased by 52% from 2014 against 2013 and the same time period saw a massive 127% increase in Australia. Read the rest of this entry

Don’t Mess With The Kids- There’s Only One Winner

James Wilson's girlfriend makes a far more intelligent comment that the haters could manage.

James Wilson’s girlfriend makes a far more intelligent comment than the haters could manage.

There’s an old proverb that the children are the true rulers of the world and the adults are merely keeping it warm for them, okay it may be something a tad more meaningful and poetic than that but you get the gist. If we really want to see an example of why sometimes it’s the youth of today that can show real maturity, wisdom and humour that those of us old enough to remember VCRs and Emmerdale still had a ‘Farm’ attached to it can only dream of we only have to look at the latest shenanigans on social media.

This week rent-a-gob Louise Mensch decided to go toe-to-toe with a seventeen year old over the issue of the #milifandom hashtag on twitter, which was aimed at backing Ed Miliband during the general election.  For those fortunate few of you who have no idea who Mensch is I’ll briefly explain, she was an ally of David Cameron’s and became an MP before quitting and emigrating to New York where she now spends her days arguing with teenagers- or anyone she can find- on twitter. Not so much ‘how the mighty have fallen, more how the ‘significant have descended into near-obscurity.’ Mensch’s harassment of the St Helens teenage student began when she accused the girl of lying about creating the hashtag. Yes, that’s right a former politician who was once close to the Prime Minister of Great Britain now fills her days in one of the truly greatest cities in the world by arguing with teenagers from Merseyside on the creation of hashtags on social media. It would be funny if it wasn’t so f**king tragic. Mensch’s bizarre pursuit of the girl even caused the former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott to wade in, tweeting the Sun about how their columnist – Mensch spouts weekly right-wing drivel for Murdoch’s paper- was bullying a 17 year-old girl.

Spam is a somewhat controversial subject; most of us hate it, yet many of us have probably dabbled in it in one form or another, even if we were entirely unaware at the time.

The fact is that spam can be found in nearly every corner of the World Wide Web, from email and search results through to political social profiles and the source of the following information itself: the infographic.

So with this in mind, we’re going to take a look at the what, where and how of cyberspam thanks to the following absolutely awesome infographics.

The Truth About Infographics

The Truth About Infographics

This infographic against infographics is a bit of a head-spinner since despite being an infographic itself it’s making the somewhat libelous statement that all infographics are simply a form of link-bait (or, in the opinion of this infographic, link-spam).

What do we learn?

  • Infographics are a very effective form of link-bait (something that, in essence, isn’t spam).
  • Submitting your infographic to Digg is a great way to help it go viral since it’s highly influential. Plus, links from Digg are all followed (unlike links from many other bookmarking sites).
  • You can turn your infographic into spam simply by hiding some irrelevant keywords and a link to your equally irrelevant site in your coding.
