Word of the week: Infogr.am
Infogr.am is an online community that allows you to create and share infographics and online charts. Infogr.am offers templates that take a few moments to create and can be embedded into a blog post or other mediums for sharing. Additionally, infogr.am’s online toolkit for building infographics also features a data journalism center in which you can add interactivity to your data stories for better audience engagement. Infographics and other data visualizations are a growing trend amongst marketers because they help ease communication methods by simplifying ideas in a clear and concise, yet aesthetically pleasing manner. In fact, you might remember that not too long ago we wrote about Visual.ly, another free community that enables you to share and create infographics. As the infographic and data visualization trend continues to grow, it will be interesting to see what other forms of visual charts and graphs will evolve and become the norm for presenting information, especially as the healthcare market continues to evolve.
