Mashable is one of my favorite sources for social media news. While there are several others, I find the breadth of information, the quality of writing, and the range of topics appeals to me. While researching the digital divide, I came across the following infographic they published in a February blog post. I think it does a good job of condensing a lot of information into one, easily-digestible chunk. By the vary nature of it simplifying the information, it does capture the nuanced antecedents and problems that arise out of this issue. However, I think it’s an image that can evoke a visceral reaction to the injustices that continue to plague our society. What do you feel after taking a look at it?
