I saw someone tweet a link to an image of an infographic comparing twitter users, oh I thought, that’s interesting. So I went to explore and saw a link on the bottom to a website visual.ly.
Visual.ly is a site that you can build infographics for anything, but also where they can automatically generate a fun side by side comparison of twitter user by inputting their user names – I tried it out with James and I – the results are below.
As I said it’s just a bit of fun but it’s got me thinking – How could you use something like this to promote competition for engagement in communities? Thinking back to the training I’ve done with the LNP – could this be used to pitch accounts against each other to encourage engagement and get the less “social media savvy” on board with using their accounts.
Would putting a fun competitive element to the need to use social media push those sitting on the fence, those who can see the benefit of digital engagement but aren’t fully confident in using the tools into taking part?
Just a thought.
PS – I love the fact it thinks I’m more interesting than James. SCORE!!
