VISUAL ASSETS - Why Visual Assets, not Infographics - Whiteboard Friday

VISUAL ASSETS - Why Visual Assets, not Infographics - Whiteboard Friday | Facilitation Resources | Scoop.it
While infographics are touted by some as wonderful examples of making information accessible, in today's Whiteboard Friday, Rand shows us a very different view of them, making the case for using individual visual assets instead.

Great VIDEO on INFOGRAPHICS.  I agree 100% with Rand. I think infographics are mostly worthliess.  


As an alternative, he recommends photos, charts/graphics, concept representations, comic/storyboards, and screenshots with explanations.


If you like this scoop, please consider a thumbs up or share.

Why Google Plus is a force to be reckoned with

 

Google Plus is more than a social network. It is a platform with fingers in many pies. Refusing to use it is like refusing to dress for work. Let’s look at the many great things about Google Plus....

Google+ just keeps on growing in size and potential. Marketers need to keep this channel in mind as they plan strategies.

Peter (PJ) Fulcher-Meredith's curator insight, May 8, 2013 12:55 AM

Another voice in the Google+ Facebook debate.  My jury is still out.  But I do like where Google is going.  Facebook on its own appears a bit limited cpompared to the suite of tools that Google has to offer. Your thoughts?

Jeff Domansky's comment, May 18, 2013 2:46 PM
Hi Peter, I'm starting to use G+ more and recent changes make it even better. Over time it will be even more successful.
