Why Are Infographics So Popular?

Many of you visit our blog because of the consistent effort we put at sharing marketing infographics. Simply put… we love them and they’re incredibly popular. As well as developing our own, we scour the Internet looking for great infographics and companies often request that we publish theirs. We even have a full-time infographics author, Kelsey Cox from Column Five!

According to Graphs.net, research shows that the search volume for Infographics has increased by a whopping 800% between 2010 and 2012. Wow! At the same time, there’s been an explosion of popularity with visual content – from technologies like Postano to platforms like Pinterest. Visual mediums aren’t going anywhere… I believe their popularity will continue to grow over the next few years.
