INFORMATION + GRAPHICS = INFOGRAPHICS.
Genius, I know. This is the newest trend (along side the Harlem Shake viral video – link!) in sending out valuable information, but in an attractive way. It hit’s the idea into one’s cerebral cortex (the place where things are registered in the brain) instantly; due to the way information is presented in an eye-catching and fun way.
I’ve scoured the Internet (aka. spent a lot of time on Pinterest, which I don’t mind) to find the top 5 coolest and interesting social media infographics
- Since this is social media, the top one has to be showing the leaders of the SM world. http://billcrosby.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/17170042299992403_mhVi7i4k_c.jpg
- Digital maturity: When I was growing up, everyone would always try a way to hack the blocked sites at school. I’m pretty sure there will be a social media etiquette class coming along soon. http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lupiedrxdQ1qk4y2uo1_500.jpg
- GUILTY! I do this too. http://rack.0.mshcdn.com/media/ZgkyMDEyLzAzLzMxLzAzXzU3XzM3XzIwNV9maWxl/f18c40f5
