Sometimes, it's just really hard hiding my inner-geek. If you follow me on twitter, you'll notice that I've been celebrating my 25th birthday the last two weeks. What started with a surprise weekend getaway organised by the boyfriend turned into a sequence of dinner parties with various friends and family.
So instead of blogging my way through the huge backlog I have just formed (La Cucina Cortesi, Olive On Ocean View, Velero, Galileo and more), I fiddled around with some numbers and voila -here's my data visualisation of how a Gen Y receives birthday wishes.
It shows the different channels used and the time of day the message was communicated.
Just a few things to note:
1. My sit-down dinner party of 20+ people was on the day after my birthday, which is why the in-person channel is so high on the next day.
2. I work in the digital media industry so the statistics for the social media networks may skew slightly higher
