Do you like infographics? I do.
Why? Images are easier to understand, one look and you know what’s going on (not always, I get that).
I am amazed how people are able to design all those infographics. If you check the definition of infographic (I did on Wikipedia):
Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge.
…which means that you can present probably every content using infographic. Lets stop and think about that for a second. Have you noticed how popular is youtube (because it’s all about videos – visual representation not writing). Why almost every blog-guide has some tips about blog post length – that it shouldn’t be too long (300-700 words)? I think that there are few reasons why:
- time –> we don’t have too much time
- information –> maybe we don’t have too much time but we love to collect information
- overload –> there are so much information/content all around internet, that we want to pre-check as much as possible and make decision whether we want to stop and read/watch more
If I want to read a book – I will get a book, but when I want to get information, I prefer it will be short and if I need to more about some topic, then I can search for more.
Whether it’s about Twitter, Facebook or other social media platforms:
