Well, I seem to have survived the second week of school. The second class of academic english went less fluent than the first one. I guess that I start making mistakes in English when I’m tired or –as in this case- not completely awake. Some really obvious and easy answers simply didn’t come up, even when I knew I had the answer. Fortunately, the subject of the class, infographics, wasn’t that difficult. I think I really understood the essence of what infographics are and how to use them.
I did some research to find out how infographics are used in the broad field of communication studies and I found some really interesting stuff. Well, in a way of speaking you could say that there exists an infographic for almost everything, you could literally communicate just by using infographics! For example, I found this infographic about the relation between the social media use of college students and jealousy.
Disregard from the subject, it’s a pretty good visual presentation and summary of the research that was done and presented in a very clear way. This is the big ‘catch’ while writing and designing an infographic: it has to be both visually appealing and clearly explained. No one wants to read an infographic that looks awful and the infographic won’t have much effect if the reader doesn’t really understand the content of it. So my advice: don’t underestimate the wonderful world of infographics !
