Social sharing and bookmark tool AddThis has been celebrating its 5th birthday this week and did so with a great infographic based on an analysis of the sharing data it has collated in those five years.
Facts like: people share most on a Wednesday and that the most popular time for sharing comes at 9.30AM each day (based on Eastern Time – being a US-based service) and that 75% of all clicks occur the same day of the share, give an interesting guide to how to maximise the impact and reach of the content that you share.
Of course, the findings are only based upon the information collated via the AddThis.com service but since it is in use by 10 million websites, reaching over 1.2 billion people per month, across 300 countries and 70 languages it is probably a fairly good guide.
Have a look at the infographic here.

A new infographic from anti-virus company Kaspersky Labs suggests the cost of an individual’s lax approach to online security could be over US$2,000 with criminals able to make more money from any initial loss to the hacked individual.
As revealed by this blog on ExpertReviews once your security has been compromised the average cyber criminal could make a fortune from additional access to the services you now take for granted online.
Scaring yourself to death and shutting down your internet use however is not the answer. With just a few small investments and some use of common sense you can help yourself to minimise your risk of being hacked. For starters purchasing and installing Panda Global Protection from 123-reg will give you up-to-date anti-virus protection, a firewall, spam protection for your email and the peace of mind of a back-up to ensure your personal data is secure and protected.
Have you been the victim of cyber crime? Are the values in the infographic realistic?
