Infographics, Why Are They So Popular?

An infographic or information graphic is a visual representation of information, statistics, data and knowledge.

Infographics have become more popular since the birth of the internet, although they have been around long before the internet was invented going back as far as the caveman days, such as cave paintings and more recently in the form of maps.

The popularity of infographics is down to the fact that a picture paints a better picture of information and is easier for the brain to digest. Below is an infographic showing us what infographics are.
