So, what are infographics and why are they popular?
Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. Even if our post is interesting and useful but at the same time long and consists of too many numbers and information, it is hard to focus readers’ attention. Moreover, it is possible that a reader will just scroll it down and the post will have no effect.
Infographics are another pair of shoes! Catchy, flashy, stylish! It can rapidly attract attention and the most importantly demonstrate information graphically and capaciously without strain.
Personally, I would like to underline 3 main advantages of using infographics:
- Infographics allow visualise and simplify a complicated information
- Infographics provide a wide coverage of audience via easy sharing
- Attract attention and become viral
