Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Black Friday

Whether you love it or hate it, there's no denying that Black Friday is one of the biggest retail shopping days of the year. As many as 140 million people are expected to go shopping over Thanksgiving weekend, including 95.5 million on Black Friday and 25.6 million on Thanksgiving Day (according to NRF). And let's not forget Cyber Monday - the online shopping alternative to Black Friday where retailers will offer sales and coupon codes for a limited time.

72% of Black Friday shoppers say that social media  has some sort of impact on their shopping habits - so retailers better step up their social media game, as people will be paying attention to competitors' deals on Facebook. Whether you plan to partake or not, we hope you enjoy these infographics with stats on Black Friday.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.
