5 must-see social media infographics

5 must-see social media infographics | Media Unit 1: New Media | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words, but what happens when you combine the two? Though the concept of data visualization is nothing new, the prominence of blogs and image-led social media platforms like Pinterest has truly proven that sometimes the designer’s stylus is mightier than the pen.

We thought we'd save you some time by presenting you with a short list of our favourite social media infographics. Enjoy!

But the variety makes up for it.
