Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a data visualization infographic. It is very strong chart and data wise, providing life expectancy data for numerous countries in every continent represented by a bar graph. It is strongest design wise, with a creative design with each bar graph descending into a pit representing death and longer bars representing longer life expectancy. However it is weak copy wise with a scant amount of text and story is nonexistent.

Wilson Lu's insight:

This infographic is an example of a flowchart. It is solid copy wise, with a lighthearted tone appropriate of a less serious infographic. Besides that it doesn't have much else going. Design, story, data, and charts are nonexistant. While a flowchart like this can't be expected to have data or charts, it could at least have a creative design. It is about guys and texting so a visual or two could be at least added.

What Happens to Our Brain When Learning Occurs Infographic | Infographics | Scoop.it

   Learning takes place mainly at synapses, the junctions between neurons. The What Happens to Our Brain When Learning Occurs Infographic presents how the involved synapses change when we learn something new.

Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a photo infographic. It is very strong design wise with its creative visuals such as the brain pictures of people. It is also very strong copy wise providing detailed information about the learning process as well as providing explanations of the figures below. It is decent data wise with data about the types of sleepers and  It is weak chart wise because it only has one chart. It is also weak story wise, as the figures in the infographic don't fully answer the question posed in the introduction: "Does the method you use to study really make a difference?"

The Teaching Profession Infographic

The Teaching Profession Infographic | Infographics | Scoop.it

    From the time the first child sits in their desk to the time the final bell rings is just half of a teacher’s actual job. When it comes to teaching as a career, there are many parts to the job we tend to overlook. For example, class preparation, grading, bus duty, club advising, coaching and o... http://elearninginfographics.com/the-teaching-profession-infographic/

Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a number porn infographic. It is very strong data and chart wise, boasting a large number of relevant statistics accompanied with corresponding charts. However, it weak copy and story wise. There is very little commentary on the statistics provided and little explanation on why the infographic is relevant to the reader. There isn't much design wise though the use of red for statistics regarding woman and blue for men does help distinguish between them.

Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a visual article infographic. It is strong copy wise with an explanation of all the different supplements and decent design wise with a image accompanying each explanation and the supplements organized by category. However data and charts are nonexistent. Data could have been added about the benefits of using supplements and charts could have shown the rising popularity of supplements. Story is nonexistent as well because there is no explanation why supplements are important enough to warrant the reader's attention.

Good: Quite visually appealing. Very informative.

Bad: Lack of sources for information.

Kiya James's curator insight, May 12, 3:39 PM

Pro: The colors really grab my attention and make me want read the article.

Con: An article with more supplements that people would be more likely to use.

Good Carbs Vs. Bad Carbs infographic

Good Carbs Vs. Bad Carbs infographic

Via thoughtBug
Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a vs infographic. The infographic story explains the relevance of the story by saying how different diets view carbohydrates are either good or bad, and the title makes it very obvious what the infographic is going to be about. This infographic follows the standard vs format with complex carbohydrates on the left side and simple carbohydrates on the right side. The use of red and blue helps distinguish which information is about which type of carbohydrate and the use of red for simple carbohydrates is appropriate as red is often associated with negativity. The infographic is also has good copy because it is explained why complex carbohydrates are good and simple carbohydrates are bad rather than simply saying that they are good or bad. However this infographic is weak in the data department because of a lack of data. It at least has one chart to explain what glucose index is but a chart could also be added visualize which foods have which type of carbohydrates.

How Do You Sort Out Fake Followers From Real Ones on Twitter? [INFOGRAPHIC]

How Do You Sort Out Fake Followers From Real Ones on Twitter? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Infographics | Scoop.it

The number of live humans following you on Twitter might be significantly lower than your profile’s “followers” number states. This infographic below shows that many celebrities and politicians on Twitter — often with millions of followers — typically have more than 30% fake followers.

Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a timeline infographic. It is very strong overall. It is fairly solid story and copy wise, with the timeline explaining the rise of fake twitter accounts and statistics showing their significance. It is noticeably strong data and chart wise; timeline infographics usually don't feature many charts or data. The charts and data don't' feel tacked on as they are relevant to the subject. It has a distinct timeline design that is sidewinding rather than straight. While it somewhat detracts from the sense of journey felt when reading the timeline that would normally be longer vertically or horizontally, it also ensures that the infographic is more compact.

Childproofing Your Internet Infographic

Childproofing Your Internet Infographic | Infographics | Scoop.it
Did you know that children are fifty times more likely to be victims of identity theft, and ten percent of children under the age of eighteen have already had their identities stolen?
Wilson Lu's insight:

This is an example of a useful bait infographic. It is easy to use and provides straightforward information about internet safety with children. The infographic is decent copy-wise, providing explanations for each step. For story, statistics about identity theft are presented to show the infographic is addressing cyber crime, specifically identity theft. There isn't much design wise, but what's nice is that there are appropriate pictures accompanying each step and it isn't too colorful or colorless. It is rather weak in the data and chart apartments offering only two statistics that don't really support the usefulness of the steps suggested and have no visuals accompanying them.
