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 chart above shows age distribution within major social networks and online communities. For a fun look at many other interesting facts, see the Other section below – 30 charts you didn’t know you needed.
