So there’s been this new trend that’s being used in the world of blogging, they are called infographics. But what exactly is an infographic?

After looking around on Google for a definition, I came across one from the oxford online dictionaries that says that infographics are: “a visual representation of information or data, e.g. as a chart or diagram: a good infographic is worth a thousand word.

After looking at the definition, I decided that it would be a good idea to look for some examples. So I ended up poking around on Mashable until I came across some good ones.

"The Most Viral News Sources in the World" by NewsWhip

I like that this infographic shows how popular European news sites really are. Does this mean that us American trust those sources more? Or does this mean that we don’t share the news as much as Europeans?

"The Rapid Rise of Pinterest's Blockbuster User Engagement" by Statista

It is so crazy knowing that so many people spend so much time on Pinterest. It is tied with Tumblr for most average minutes per visitor. I didn’t think of it as such a major site, but if so many people spend so much time on it, then perhaps it would be worth it for brands to look into creating pages on the site.

I didn’t think that so many people have used Facebook, apparently the total amount of users is 3x the population of the United States? Wow. I really like how this infographic gives more than just facts by listing 6 ways to improve your Facebook security.
