If you are not bilingual, then you may need some help understanding this graphic. Well, I haven’t taken a Spanish class since high school, but I shall try my best. En realidad no sé nada de español, así que soy la persona menos calificada para hacerlo. Es broma. If you don’t know Spanish, what I just typed there was, “I actually don’t know anything about Spanish, so I’m the person least qualified to do this.” Just kidding. Ok, so, the purpose of this graphic is to examine the trends of Spanish Internet users. The graphic asks and answers the following questions:
–How often are Spanish Internet users online?
–What operating systems do they use?
–What browsers do they use?
–How do they search?
–How do they shop online?
–Are they likely to have a friend standing over their shoulder as they browse the net?
–How do they generally encounter Internet ads?
There is essentially a graphic supporting every piece of data except for advertising (Publicidad) where there is a dummy with a dart supporting several facts, social networks (Redes sociales) at the bottom of the page, and data related to video consumption online where the data was enclosed in a film strip across the page.
Here is further explanation:
• The Internet Explorer 6 graphic (a row of dummies with the last two upside down) supports the text underneath which can be translated as: The percentage of users running Internet Explorer 6 in Spain reduced from 9% to 4% in 2010.
• In relation to e-commerce: the magnifying glass is analyzing a set of three words below: brands, products and user reviews (marcas, productos, valoraciones)
While I cannot judge the content portion of the graphic very well, the visual component is stunning, and the graphic appears to offer a wide variety of info on the topic. Very meaty. Overall, a superlative graphic submitted by 2mdc.com.
