Last year near this time, I posted about Facebook's end of the year review. It was pretty spot on from my point of view at that time. I may do the same thing again here shortly but I wasn't really as impressed this time around.
More personally, I've been planning to write a more general year-end retrospective about 2013. But I'm not really excited about that either. Honestly, in sum total I should call that post "Dénouement 2013" for my honest feelings about the year. There were certainly many good things that happened last year, but parts of it ... not so much. I'm not sure how much I'd like to share about some details yet so that post may take a while.
I did get an unexpected notice from Delicious regarding an annual report of stats for 2013. I've been using this social bookmarking site since 2005 (as mentioned below). I was pleasantly surprised at how well their page was put together and since it may disappear in the next few months, I thought I'd document as much of it as I can here. For as long as it is available check out James Arconati’s Delicious Annual Stats. Now the visuals below may be a bit of a mess, but here we go.
