Remembered, there will be a prize for the team that generates the most views for their infographic. Start promoting your infographic around the web wherever you think people will be interested!
I successfully downloaded infographics for 8 out of the 12 groups. Because many of the file sizes are quite large and all of the infographics are of various different difficult to scale sizes, I decided to load them up to my Flickr account. There are multiple advantages to using Flickr for this:
- When we want to embed the images, we can take advantage of the functionality that Flickr provides of automatically rescaling images.
- It’ll also give us a single consistent link that all of us can use to embed and promote an image, regardless of the size.
- Because I have a Flickr Pro account, and I’ll have advanced metrics I can share with the class for how many views the image gets.
- Because all of the images will be loaded into these same “InfoGraphics” set in my Flickr account, it’ll make it easier for people to discover additional a second (or third) infographic after they find the first one.
- Today I will link to all 8 of the available infographics on the class facebook page. Please share these posts and encourage your friends to “like” them as well. (The rest will go up as available.)
- Today I will share all 8 on Tumblr.
- Over the next week, I will post 1 to 2 infographics per day on my blog. The post titles also appear on the front page of the department website and in my twitter feed.
I encourage each of you to promote your team’s infographics as well as any classmates that you find particularly interesting. To make it easier to consistently track the total number of views for each image, link back to the Flickr pages.

Wed 11/2 Class Plans
We’re changing a few things up this evening.
- The guest presentation by Josh Rosen, Marketing Manager – Campbells Kitchen, has been postponed until Wednesday, November 8.
- We will spend time (a) discussing the assigned reading on social media ROI, (b) discussing Google+, and having the scheduled individual presentations.
- I’m also setting aside time for brief meetings with each group for feedback on your Infographics. (For some groups this may be quite brief, for others a little bit longer.)
General Infographic Feedback
- For (a) include something along the lines of: This infographic was prepared by X, Y, and Z for Prof. Johnson’s Social Media Innovation course at Temple U. Fox School of Business. bit.ly/mis3538
- For (b), include something along the lines of: “Data from: url, url, url”, “Image credits: …, …, … “. If there are an overwhelming number of credits, you create a page at the class blog with them and point to that page… “See http://community.mis.temple.edu/mis3538b2/teameight for data source and image credits.”
- Time permitting, update as per above feedback.
- Save the most recent version of your group’s infographic as either a JPG or PNG format file.
- Either (a) upload that version to your group Wiki page or (b) somewhere else accessible via the classroom computer

Part of the activity itself it to figure out exactly how to complete the activity. Nonetheless, once you have started working on an activity if you get totally stuck let me know what you’ve tried so far and I’ll be glad to provide some further pointers.
