We love infographics here at It’s Open, as they’re a great way to get a snapshot at an online situation, without wading through thousands of words.
In fact, the web in general loves a good infographic, and sites like Mashable and Social Media Today often feature fun infographics. So it’s worth spending some time pooling your knowledge into creating your own infographic.
Here are a few of our favourite resources for creating your own infographic:
Visual.ly is a brand new service that lets you create infographics without the need for extensive design knowledge. At the moment you can create a Twitter infographic of your activities, and a full service should be available soon.
Creately is a tool for creating simple diagrams and graphs as a base to your inographic. Additionally, it’s collaborative so you can create an infographic as a team effort.
I love Wordle or using words to create a beautiful visual. Enter your chosen words and it’ll create a wordy visual. Even better, you can enter your blog url or Delicious username to create an infographic of your chosen content or tags.
