Information graphics or infographics for short are hot to trot online for a number of reasons. Firstly, they illicit the ’wow factor’ response, (especially if they are vector based and well designed), and secondly and perhaps most importantly they tell us something in an intuitive, and easy to process way. The very nature of the format, also makes them easy to share on blogs, wiki’s, social networks and tumblelogs , without the associated hangups of traditional content duplication and syndication.
An interesting phenomenon in some of the popular social news aggregators like Reddit, and Digg is the appearance of infographics.
Unless you've been living in a cave, you know the flavor of the month for link baiting is INFOGRAPHICS!!! They're everywhere, and many major online publications (Huff Post, Fast Company, BoingBoing, Mashable, etc) make it a habit of running cool infographics each day. What's more, infographics hit the front pages of social giants like Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon on a regular basis.
Nous connaissons depuis quelques mois une recrudescence des infographies . Au lieu de publier un article/dossier complet qui n’en fini plus de statistiques et de faits en tout genre, beaucoup de marketeurs/statisticiens/groupes/internautes préfèrent la nouvelle solution de l’infographie.

Nobody has time to read anymore, right? Every day we are all inundated with more and more information overload coming from credible and yet to be verified sources.
Are you looking to get into data visualization, but don't quite know where to begin?
"I don't see how this is spam, and I am surprised that people are offended that the authors of these info graphics are trying to make money." They're doing so dishonestly. Dishonesty on the tubes is why so many of us are jaded and believe nothing.
