I like blogs but sometimes, the amount of content I'm reading gets overwhelming so I resort to my kindergarten days of liking anything with pretty pictures! Think consuming content + Pretty pictures = Infographics.
Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. With an information graphic, computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians develop and communicate concepts using a single symbol to process information.
There are three types of learning styles, visual learning, kinesthetic learning and auditory learning. Infographics are effective, for you guessed it, visual learners and this girl. 😉
Infographics tend to share a large amount of information in a very organized, simple format and allows for an easy flow of consuming the information. Just me of does the trend with infographics within social media at an all time high? I suppose it's because it is simpler to breakdown and describe social media by creating something tangible because you are highlighting something that people, are not literate in, yet.
