  • Facebook started out as a way for friends to connect and interact online. Yet, as the startup grew from a few thousand users at New England colleges to hundreds of millions around the world, it quickly became a place where businesses could interact more intimately with their customers.

    In the past few years, big brands have started taking social media seriously, and Facebook marketing is a big part of the plan for many companies. However, even big brands struggled to amass a Facebook following or extract value in the beginning. Coca-Cola, one of the world’s most recognizable brands, for example, had 800 Facebook fans in November 2007. It has 16.5 million now.

    In this infographic, we explore the timeline of brand-friendly updates to Facebook itself, as well as the brands that dominate in Facebook marketing today.

  • Where is the best place to be born in the world today? In a light-hearted ranking that we compiled in 1988, America came top. In 2013, the Economist Intelligence Unit more earnestly calculated where would be best to be born. It ranked America 16th.
  • With the rise of digital devices that tell time, track your steps and even pay the dinner bill, it would seem that the demise of the mechanical watch would be fast approaching. But in fact, high-end timepieces are doing just fine. Last year, Switzerland exported a record $24.3 billion worth of them (which says nothing of the equally booming vintage business).

    And while the Apple watch, which launched in April and sold an estimated 2.5 million units in its first quarter, is likely to affect those numbers, most traditional producers are taking their smart competition in stride. After all, they survived the ravages of the 1970s, when quartz technology made 60,000 watchmakers obsolete.

    Indeed, the Swiss are in the midst of a horological renaissance in which dedicated collectors wait years — and pay millions — for timepieces that make up for their lack of digital functionality with analog elegance and a promise: Given regular servicing, they’ll run in perpetuity.
