21 insightful social media infographics.

thumbnailIn an era of information overload, words by themselves can fall flat.

Infographics do more than present data — they capture the eye and tell a story, engaging the viewer who might otherwise have ignored the content.

When text, images, and creative design come together in one smart package, a sort of visual shorthand is produced. Besides taking complex information and presenting it in a readable way, infographics hold great marketing potential; web traffic is increased and your SEO is benefitted, thanks to the viral nature of this gripping medium coupled with the power of social media.

It’s only appropriate, then, to take a look at some of the more interesting and effective infographics on the topic of social media and networking. From Facebook to Twitter to Instagram, the power of new media has transformed not only our personal lives but also the nature of doing business. Keeping up with the science and the trends is half the battle — luckily, these clever infographics help us do just that. Enjoy!
