A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we’re listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually.

Congo: How U.N. Peacekeeping Force Monusco Has Failed a Nation. At 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 20, one of the few tanks belonging to the M23 rebels of eastern Congo fired a single round into the international airport on the outskirts of Goma, the second biggest city in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Congo: How U.N. Peacekeeping Force Monusco Has Failed a Nation

The townspeople, who looked up to see the first of 1,000 or so guerrillas marching on the city, began walking and running toward the city center, carrying their children and anything else they could. After a short while they were overtaken — by two large trucks packed with foreign soldiers from the U.N. peacekeeping force for Congo, Monusco. Mandated to protect Congo’s civilians, with 19,000 men in uniform and costing $1.4 billion a year, the world’s biggest and most expensive peacekeeping operation was literally leaving its charges in its dust.

HOPE, Arkansas — Republican Mike Huckabee launched his second presidential campaign on Tuesday with the hometown gentility of John Mellencamp Americana and the fire and brimstone of the Book of Revelation. The same town gave Clinton his successful 1992 campaign slogan “I Still Believe In A Place Called Hope,” now was setting of a new presidential campaign, new slogans and a new presidential aspirant with big dreams and little chance of ever making it to the White House. Adopting a play from the Clinton campaign handbook, Huckabee used the slogan Hope to Higher Ground to woo the crowd and charm the town where the National Park Service runs Clinton’s boyhood home.
