The idea of a Socially Generative Visualization originated out of a section of the design handbook INFOGRAPHICS.
An SGV, as described by the authors, is a new direction for data visualization– one which marketers and content consumers alike should take note of– especially as content distribution continues to be affected by socially relevant data.
What’s the next step when you’re looking to give your viewers a deeper interaction with your content? Apparently, we should be looking at “socially generative visualizations,” a novel approach that combines the best aspects of traditional static Infographics and classic interactive interfaces with a new purpose: “to allow the viewer to interact with the content in a more meaningful way by contributing to and actually being a part of the measured data that is displayed.”
