Twitter Link Roundup #158 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | December 14th, 2012

Average age people are least happy

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The graphic above shows the average age at which people reach the lowest point of happiness in their lives. The substantial age differences between countries are very interesting.
