Everywhere I go these days, I see something related to Angry Birds. To be honest, I think that the hype has outlived its use a long time ago. However, entrepreneurs are still jumping on the Angry Birds bandwagon. I have seen bags, hats, plushies, pillows, shirts, key rings, and all sorts of other merchandise with the Angry Birds characters in them. Perhaps it is an indication that a good number of people still have an Angry Birds addiction. Perhaps it’s just trying to milk the brand for what it’s worth.
In any case, if you are still one of those of who have an Angry Birds addiction, then you will find this infographic rather interesting. Personally, I do have a soft spot for the birds and the pigs, but I haven’t really played the game in a long time. Maybe finding it a tad difficult for my skills is a huge reason. ;)
The infographic was created by Ask Your Target Market, a market research company. Much of the data found in the infographic is not surprising. Some information may not even be new. There are a couple of things that did get my attention, though.
- People actually admit to having Angry Birds addiction, and 12% of those have deleted the app from their device to “cure” the addiction. Another 12% have considered deleting the app to solve the problem but have never gotten around to doing so.
- According to the infographic, the physics of Angry Birds is real. It’s what you would expect in real life. I beg to disagree. I know I have been labeled as sucking at applied physics, but really, Angry Birds defies the laws of physics in more ways than one!
- If you are single, you are more likely to feel sad or angry after playing Angry Birds. I am sorry, I can’t help but think that there is more to the equation than playing the game!

So do you still have an Angry Birds addiction? I think I have moved on to another social game, which I shall not name lest I get rotten fruits and vegetables thrown at me.
