Using Infographics in your Blogs


Information graphics or infographics is a graphic visual representation of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly in one page. Infographics take complex information and data sets and make them easy to digest in a visually stimulating design. This allows the viewer to quickly grasp the main points from the data or information, which is important in our 30-second society. In a way, it is like making entire PowerPoint presentation in one long page, with nice design and consideration for overall visual attractiveness and easy comprehension.
