The principle states that people generally have a better memory for pictures than for corresponding words.

Frontiers | PowerPoint® Presentation Flaws and Failures: A Psychological Analysis | Psychology

Electronic slideshow presentations are often faulted anecdotally, but little empirical work has documented their faults. In Study 1 we found that eight psychological principles are often violated in PowerPoint® slideshows, and are violated to similar extents across different fields – for example, academic research slideshows generally were no better or worse than business slideshows. In Study 2 we found that respondents reported having noticed, and having been annoyed by, specific problems in presentations arising from violations of particular psychological principles. Finally, in Study 3 we showed that observers are not highly accurate in recognizing when particular slides violated a specific psychological rule. Furthermore, even when they correctly identified the violation, they often could not explain the nature of the problem. In sum, the psychological foundations for effective slideshow presentation design are neither obvious nor necessarily intuitive, and presentation designers in all fields, from education to business to government, could benefit from explicit instruction in relevant aspects of psychology.

It's 2020. Why Are You Still Using PowerPoint? | Visual Design and Presentation in Education | Scoop.it
The world's top communicators have stopped using PowerPoint. Why are you stuck in the 1980s?
PIRatE Lab's curator insight, January 29, 2020 12:50 PM
While some of these points are valid, much of this post is pretty lame.  It inconsistently lists evidence and in effect is nothing more than an anecdotal argument....I guess that is what you would expect from someone who seems mostly about pushing advertising rather than quantitative analysis. 

This post should be read as "why business presentations are lame" rather than a critique of PowerPoint per se.
