Have You Ever Heard Of Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing may sound like a new term, but it actually came about around five years ago by a journalist called Jeff Howe in Wired magazine. Basically, the idea is that it allows the ordinary folks in the street to work with big business to develop products and services; it is like being able to take advantage of huge groups of people in the same way as firms use focus groups.

Luckily, for further exploration of this business Ushahidi have produced the definitive info graphic on crowdsourcing, which is below.
