About this Topic/Event

Infographics are a great way to share data in a visual way and have really been getting more and more popular in the last years (especially with Pinterest and Instagram out there).

There are also SEO advantages to using infographics because they function like an image, so you can write up your own blurb or full article, or have a guest author write it for you.
