Piktochart has recently been upgraded, and now it makes infographics and presentations more interactive. You can now insert hyperlinks in your content and make your charts and tabs interactive. Also it is easier to save and share your infographics.

Unfortunately, free account is very limited, it gives you only 4 basic themes to choose from. Paid accounts for students start at $3.33 per month.

Check out Piktochart for education

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Frankly EdTech |

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.


These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...
