My part of this Infograph was “Who are social gamers?” My section that I studied was the Education Section as seen below.

As can be seen here we look at the education of people who are social gaming. Before we break all these numbers apart we have a few things that we lack from all this. Sources, is the information accurate where it came from. It says mashable on the bottom but where do they aquire all of their information. And what games exactly are they talking about and what defines a game? Besides these facts there is another thing this information had to have been obtaind by what there profile says for the particular social network they were involved with assuming they were telling the truth about there degree. With many factors in mind. The evidence given is amazing, the majority of users if you were to break it down, 79% people who have some college or more are gaming.  Could that mean they are gaming while learning? the net have that much of an impact on us now? How much of a role does it play in peoples everyday life? Even better it states 43% of people who are gaming are college graduates. I personally thought the people who would be using this the most would be highschool or younger. I am not even familiar with social gaming. But then again I am apart of a little older generation and I am not accustomed to it resulting in my thought of the younger generation taking more of an interest.
A bit of a funny twist to it is that only 2% of people who have obtained a Doctorate are not playing these games so much, and you have to remember the amount of people who get a doctorate degree is smaller in the first place compared to the over all graduates. So the smarter you become the less there is a desire to play? Is it to simple or is more time comsumed with profession. Who knows?!
Steping back to the actual infograph itself its well put together and the graphs are a cool feature add a pie chart in there and all of a sudden I feel like im in the middle of a big business deal. Looks good well put together.
