What Are Infographics?
According to Wikipedia, 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.
In other words, Infographics are Data Visualization Tools!

Great Data Visualization Tool
Blogging takes a lot of work. However, infographics are a way that you can make things easier on yourself. You can either create your own, have someone create them for you, or purchase some already made ones that are available on the web. Infographics can present data and ideas in ways that make it easy to visualize and see exactly what you are trying to get across. Infographics are going to be faster and more clear than you having to take the time to write out blog posts and then go through the editing process as well. By using premade infographics fromtime to time on your blog you are allowing yourself to have time to do other things in life. But, at the same time your blog is not suffering because you are still able to get quality information out to your audience.
Great Marketing Tool
If you are presenting ideas or data in a way that is both humorous while at the same time making it easy to visualize an idea it is more likely to be spread virally. If you share your infographics with your social networks and if you are in tune with social media, and your infographic displays its message in a unique way, you can be sure that your audience is going to share it through their social media channels and the chain only continues from there. The key of course is to strike a cord with the viewer and make it easy to share the information and infographics has the ability to do this.
Overall, any business and blogger knows that it is important to be aware of the trends. Right now infographics are in and they definitely should be part of your arsenal for your success.
