Today, visual content has become a top priority for publishers. During our Visual Revolution CMO Salon at SXSW, Matt Eby shared The Weather Channel’s adoption of online video, going from 0 original videos created per day in 2012 to 30 original videos created per day in 2014. And with many publishers re-designing websites to be more visual-focused, the importance of photos and videos has become clear. But why are visual media so important? We’ve got the stats below in our latest infographic!

SXSW: the only place where you can take a selfie with Grumpy Cat and Machete in one day. Austin is weird, and it gets even weirder when thousands of tech innovators, film stars, internet memes, and suits descend.

Paris Fashion Week revealed their top looks from some of the most acclaimed designers of our era. Photos from runway shows, street fashion, and celebrity sightings poured out of the City of Lights this past week. Surprisingly, however, many of the most buzzed designers remained silent–despite the attempt most everyone made to have a visual conversation around these shows.

Below, we have the three designers with the most “visual buzz” from Fashion Week attendees and onlookers; but all three remained fairly unengaged. While New York Fashion Week fully embraced technology and social engagement, Paris shunned it in almost every way. These brands missed the opportunity to be a part of this future merging of tech and fashion, and they missed out on an opportunity to have a deeper and more engaging interaction with their fans.

Within seconds, hundreds of photos came flooding in – a trend that occurred through the entire weekend as attendees showed off their favorite cosplayers, comics, and panels. Who inspired the most visual sharing?
