Rise of Infographics: Marketing in the Social-Media Age

Infographics break down data visually, helping viewers make sense of complex information. Their popularity has increased with the rise of social media, fuelling the need for instant results by providing content in bite-size, digestible chunks.

So, what’s the science behind an infographic’s success? Allow an infografik to explain.

Created by Nowsourcing, a social-media marketing company, it shows that infografik posts dwarf traditional posts when it comes to sharing on social networks. The most popular topics for infografiks include: business, technology, social media, the economy and health.

Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infografik

How many cups is a pint or a quart or a gallon? How many teaspoons is each? When you're cooking and have to quickly convert kitchen measurements, a graphic chart like this is a great help. Sometimes you just don't have the right measuring tool for the recipe you're using. This "Common Cook's How-Many Guide to Kitchen Conversions" from graphic designer Shannon Lattin (who brought us an essential vitamins reference guide) shows you what to do for those quick conversions. At first glance, it probably seems more confusing than a simple liquid conversion chart. But when you look at it more closely and if you print it out for posting on your kitchen wall, it's pretty ingenious. The lines connect each measurement to their equivalent. (Note the + sign indicates an added measure to add. And, alas, there are no ounces here.) Source: Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infographic


Presidents' Pets: An Infographic History Of Animals In The White House


Presidents' Pets: An Infographic History Of Animals In The White House

Bo Obama has certainly received his share of media coverage, but he's actually just the latest in a long line of critters who’ve called the White House home. While 68 percent of our presidents have owned dogs, and 20 percent of them have had cats, other animals have also lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — like canaries, goats, horses and even cows. Exotic animals have also played a part in White House history, including President Theodore Roosevelt’s menagerie of lions, zebras and bears. President James Buchanan was gifted a herd of elephants from the King of Siam, but the pachyderms never roamed the South Lawn. There are, however, more than 70,000 bees currently taking up residence in a hive on the storied lawn. Source: Presidents' Pets: An Infographic History Of Animals In The White H ouse

How Social Media Is Making Over the Fashion Industry

Technology made its mark at New York Fashion Week this year with the rise of social media on the runway. One study from eBay Deals looked into data from five social networks during NYFW and found more people are using social media for wardrobe advice, inspiration and the latest trends. Top fashion accounts live tweeted from the shows and two brands, Badgley Mischka and Bergdorf Goodman, co-previewed their collections exclusively on Pinterest. Fashion-related tweets doubled from last year's events and profressional photographers made use of Instagram. As the New York shows comes to a close, social media will be a major factor at London Fashion Week starting Friday. Fashionistas can keep track of events and viral moments through a live feed that curates tweets and pictures from attendees. Source: How Social Media Is Making Over the Fashion Industry
