Infographics are all over the web today—a simple Google search for “infographic” returns more than 44 million matches.
Although it may seem as though infographics were just recently created, our ancestors have used versions of them for centuries. So why didn’t they become popular back then? It’s my opinion that the nonexistence of social sharing sites played a role in cave drawings never going viral.
Lucky for us, there is a plethora of social sharing sites now, which makes infographics a marketer’s best friend. These trendy graphics are also a college student’s best friend because instead of reading a long article about a topic, they can simply scan an infographic and get the gist of the story.
Minnesota School of Business has even jumped on the infographic bandwagon by creating a one-page infographic about student and faculty ratios, campus populations, popular programs, graduate job placement, applied learning and more!
