Today in my social media class we learned about infographics. Infographics are really cool because we can actually see the information that is being presented to us.  An infographic breaks down information and data and helps us to make sense of information that would probably seem a little complicated.  Infographics are excellent marketing tools and can be created for many topics including sports, health, and social media. For me, infographics are nice because as a Ph.D. student I have to do a lot of reading to search for facts and stats so this is a great change from having to read lengthy articles. What makes infographics such a big deal? Well, they have the potential of reaching millions of people through the use of likes, tweets, and other social media shares. The amount of pins and repins on Pinterest  seem to prove that infographics are indeed popular! Check out this infographic on the most social colleges! Pretty cool, huh?
