Although you may not recognize it by name, it is safe to say you have seen at least one infographic pop up on a social, web, and blog site while perusing the Internet. An infographic, in simple terms, tells a story in a visual way. Early examples of an infographic include: Egyptian hieroglyphics, cave paintings, and weather maps.
Now catching new popularity, infographics cover a variety of topics and are loaded with data. Yet, readers beware, not all infographics are made equal.
