Infographics is like Reddit’s tl;dr – but better.
Tl;dr which means “too long; didn’t read”, is widely used by Redditors on posts or comments which are long and wordy. This abbreviation will appear at the end of it with a single sentence to summarise the entire post. So if it takes too long to read a wall of text, just skip to the bottom for the tl;dr.
Infographic is a much better version of tl;dr. In fact, it is the fun and engaging version people actually read. Content is summarized with graphical representations, keywords, and concise data. This makes infographics easy to consume and fun to share.
Infographics as a concept is not new. It first appeared in the 1600s when Christoph Scheiner published a book with diagrams to demonstrate the rotation of the son. In recent years, infographics have evolved and are making its way into classrooms, newsrooms and boardrooms.
Let’s talk about infographics as a marketing tool. Infographics focus on visuals to spread information, businesses have made good use of the power of infographics in their branding.

    I believe you meant “rotation of the sun” not rotation of the “son” when you referred to the first uses of infographics. Spell check should never replace a good proofreader.
