Infographics are all the rage lately.
And by lately, I mean my computer still puts a red squiggly line under infographics.
So, for my computer and for those who are also pondering infographics, here is the definition:
Infographics are becoming pertinent to businesses’ success, especially on social media. Why? We are visual people. We are busy people. We have short attention spans. We don’t have the time or the desire to read a long article. We want to know what matters to us and we want that information quick. Infographics appeal to us. And when something keeps our attention in a positive way, it is only right to share that with others. Spreading the love, so to speak. If done well, infographics can gain some mileage.
“Left brain thinking” was the focus of the late 1900’s and the first decade of the 21st century. If you could receive and retain loads of information, your career path was paved with gold.
I am on the infographic train and I suggest you hop on board as well.
