Thank You for Inforgraphicing

Standard

An interesting trend in online information sharing or social/media networking is the increasing relevance of infograhpics. Infographics are a unique way of visualizing data that blends visual devices with informational elements and other such individual style elements.

There is even some evidence that suggest they can be a powerful tool for search engine optimization(SEO) in the social media world. Personally, I find them to be a nifty little device to drive curiosity or conversation about a topic, brand, or whatever given the unusual blend of visual and informational elements. This can be effective in helping people commit the information to memory or wanting to share the “cooler” infographics with others.

Conceptualizing in this way may also give the creator a deeper understanding of the information and develop a distinctive vision of how they want to convey the information.

I mean if a pictures worth a thousand words, whats a picture with loads of words and information worth? Please let me know what you think about infographics. It will be interesting to see how they may develop going forward and their potential uses.

In the interest of attempting to visualize these thoughts, here’s a cool infographic of infographics. Try utilizing them for yourself and find cool or interesting ways to visualize your data!
