The Evolution of Social Media infographic by Sean Gardner is getting some play. As a good infographic should, this one tells a story by combining text and graphics at-a-glance.
This reminds me of one of my favorite (early) infographics of all time, The Conversation Prism. Brian Solis has been updating this summary of sites and tools since 2008. Now in its four rendition, the infographic puts "You" in the middle of social media.
