Tuesday, August 16, 2011 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

Here at The Establishing Shot we try steer away from politics and the like, as a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing. But like many of you I'm still shocked, appalled, saddened, confused and whilst trying to make sense of the recent UK riots we are NOT SUPRISED - at what has just happened to us. Really just grateful that is wasn't worse.

Jam the Social Media Experts have gone a step further and are proactively generating positivity in the wake of recent events. Below is an interesting infographic showing both the positive and negative data drawn from social media buzz of the riots that took place nationally across the UK.

From Jam:
We’ve visually juxtaposed the positive and negative data surrounding the riots in an infographic, to demonstrate the effort the UK is putting in to addressing the fall-out from the devastation that took too many homes, businesses, and lives. We hope to do another, as we continue to monitor the data surrounding the riots to demonstrate the effort the UK is putting in to addressing the fallout.
