An infographic shows the top news sites in terms of how often they provide consumers with information about their shopping habits.
The infographic, produced by the Federal Trade Commission, shows that Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, Twitter, and YouTube are the top five news sites for consumers, followed by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and CNN.
In addition, Google News is the fifth most frequent source of information for consumers.
The infographic, titled “Informational Interviews: How News Sources Make Your Shopping Experience Personal,” shows that the information available on the internet is a vital part of how we shop.
The information can be “informationally” conveyed in many ways, including information in the form of videos, podcasts, blog posts, articles, and other forms of media.
The “informed choice” category includes the five top news sources in terms on how often consumers see or receive information on their shopping choices.
These five news sources also account for roughly one-fifth of the information consumers get about their purchases on Amazon, Google and Facebook, and three-quarters of the news that consumers receive about their choices on Amazon and Google.
These news sources are also the source of more than half of the informational content on YouTube.
The information-sharing categories “informs” and “information” have been included in the infographic as well.
The top five information sources for consumers are Amazon, YouTube, Google (YouTube is a Google subsidiary), Facebook, Bing, and Microsoft.
For the information- sharing category “invisible media,” which includes blogs, news sites, and online videos, Facebook is the top provider.
The top five sources for information are the Huffington Post, Bloomberg, CNN, MSNBC, and Reuters.
The news outlets and websites are ranked in descending order.
The number of times each news source is mentioned in the news article was counted as 1.0.
The source of this information is listed in the headline of the article.
The number of mentions of the sources was counted in ascending order, from most to least frequent.
For the information sharing category, the number of “invisible media” mentions was counted from 0.1 to 100.
This includes any mentions that were “inadvertently” removed by Google or by other means.
For this data-sharing category, information is defined as information that is “included in or used in an informational piece or video” (meaning it appears in the article without being linked to directly).
For information sharing, the article was coded as “inactive” if it did not mention the information.
If the article did not explicitly mention information, the code was 1.
For “incomplete” news, the story was coded “not relevant.”
