This is actually good. If you have a minute to waste :)
 
If your brain works normally

This is another example of an amazing illusion!!! The last sentence is so true.

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots will remain only one color, pink.

However if you stare at the black '+ ' in the center, the moving dot turns to green.
Now, concentrate on the black ' + ' in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will see only a single green dot rotating.

It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.
Reshare this to all of your friends and amaze them.

The Most Common Social Media Fears And How To Get Over Them [INFOGRAPHIC]

If you own a small business, you've been told that you need to get on Facebook, get on Twitter, and create a presence for your brand in order to compete in today's digital landscape. But how will you ever find the time to build a social-media campaign on top of everything else you need to do? What if you say the wrong thing? What if you get negative feedback? What if nobody follows you?

Despite these fears, what might seem like a major risk — or a time-waster, at best — is actually an invaluable tool for developing a voice and customer base for your brand. (And, if you do it right, it only takes 15 minutes a day).

Take a look at this infographic created by The Huffington Post, which illustrates an easy-to-follow guide with some eye-opening facts – that should help business owners conquer their social media anxiety.
