Alain Giffard 30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes.

Et les infographies, c’est apprécié parce que c’est visuel, c’est fun, c’est léger, les chiffres apparaissent d’eux-mêmes. Mais présentée de manière incomplète, manipulée. Alors si certains pensent que le problème des infographies est leur mise à jour, il y a aussi un autre enjeu dans cette visualisation de données, parfois simplifiée. Et la qualité dans tout ça ?
