5 Easy-To-Use Websites For Infographics

5 Easy-To-Use Websites For Infographics | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it

Communicating effectively in our era of information overload means moving beyond static words and numbers. Images and graphics carry meaning in a way that cuts through verbal clutter. That’s why infographics have become such powerful tools, used by companies large and small to communicate with employees, customers and the broader public.

Traditionally, creating infographics has required the services of a skilled design professional and a sizable budget for expert time and talent. With a range of new web services, the cost and complexity of creating infographics has fallen dramatically.

Infographics can be useful for explaining business processes and logistics, or for explaining the size, scope, scale or nuance of a project or service. Here are five of the best tools for putting together your own business infographics.

Ask anyone to name the most popular social media tools used by students, and it’s a safe bet everybody could name the top two: Facebook and Twitter.

But those are far from the only online applications making inroads. As administrators warm to engaging students through social media, the list of potential resources at their disposal grows longer by the day.

 

Facebook and Twitter are the obvious choices. But there are other options- Tumblr, YouTube and Google+, to name three.

Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet

Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet | NYL - News YOU Like | Scoop.it

It wasn’t malicious. The file itself was the size of a small JPEG. It was given the absolute lowest priority. And it was set to self-destruct if anything went wrong. But this small file allowed one single hacker to measure the Internet activity of nearly half a million connected devices around the world, then share the results with everyone.

How was this even possible? The "hacker" barely hacked anything. In reality, they gained access to all these systems because each had the default "root" set as a password. With this access in hand, they ran several tests focusing on Internet structure and activity. And what they created from all this data is a spectacular map that captures a day in the life of the Internet (and all of its users).
