What Are Infographics

Have you been noticing a bunch of infographics on various websites lately? Do you wonder what they are and how they came to be?

If so, read on.

An infographic or information graphic is a graphical representation of data. The main purpose of an infographic is to convey complex information in a quick and clear manner.

Simply put, an infographic is the representation of textual data with design elements (such as colors, pictures, illustrations, etc) in order to help improve comprehension.

Analysis from experts has revealed that it is easier for humans to consume content presented in a graphical format than in a purely textual form. This is one of the main reasons for widespread adoption of these graphics by various media portals and companies.

In the past, infographics weren’t easy to produce and therefore, the only people who made use of their power were mega organizations. With the advent of the internet, social networking sites and free graphic tools, a large segment of the population is now able to create infographics and use them to convey great looking data with their audience.

Even if you’re no techie, you can have your own infographic created. Sites such as Facebook & Twitter allow your data to be conveyed in a graphical manner (hint: timeline).
