The growth of social media over the last few years has seen more and more websites produce infographics. The concept is simple: produce a large graphic that is packed full of information, a graphic that is so informative that thousands of people will want to share it through Facebook and Twitter.
Visually, infographics need to be impressive, though the information presented in them needs to be great too. Many designers miss the mark in this respect and fall into obscurity. So for an infographic to be shared, it has to be great in all aspects.
Today, I would like to share with you 50 of the best infographics on the web. I hope you enjoy the list :)
