Recently, we shared LUMA Partner's insane infographic showing how complicated social media has become. The post received a lot of feedback, largely centered around what was missing. There were a few major social media outlets that seemed near impossible to miss, mainly 2012's darling child Pinterest.
The largest problem with LUMA's graph was that it was created in June of 2011, long before Pinterest became nationally popular.

Facebook announced sweeping integrations for WordPress.org and WordPress.com VIP users on Tuesday morning — allowing you to add your blog content to the social network in one click.
The integrations are accessible through a Facebook for WordPress plugin (available here) and allow bloggers and administrators of WordPress-based sites to cross-publish content to WordPress, their own Facebook Timelines and the Facebook Pages they oversee.
"The plugin was built by Facebook engineers in collaboration with open source partners, and makes it simple for anyone to make their WordPress site more social – no coding required," Facebook engineer Matt Kelly wrote in a blog post introducing the tool.
Twitter is rolling out what it calls "tailored trends" Tuesday — to help users see more relevant topics in their Discover tab and top trends list. Both areas display topics that are attracting the most conversations at any given time worldwide or in 150 specific locations.
"Today we're improving our algorithms to tailor trends based on your location and who you follow on Twitter," the company's product manager Sara Mauskopf wrote in a blog post. "These Trends lists are tailored for you by default on twitter.com and mobile apps like Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android."
LinkedIn (LNKD) (along with unrelated sites like eHarmony and Last.fm) suffered a massive data breach when millions of user accounts and passwords were leaked and posted to hacker sites. Is there a way to know if you were affected? And what should you do about it?
First, the good news: The odds are in your favor. Even though a staggering 6.5 million passwords were stolen from LinkedIn, that represents only about 4 percent of the site's 150 million users. And if you were one of the unlucky few whose information was lifted, you should have been informed by now. LinkedIn sent messages to affected members last week indicating that their passwords had already been invalidated, with instructions on how to set up new passwords.
