Create your own infographic

I love a good infographic. It’s such an easy way to view a whole lot of information in one glance. And if you have the skills and knowledge to create your own infographic, it can be a wonderful way to get lots of traffic and awareness of your brand out there (especially if you get featured on sites like Mashable or Social Media Today).

I don’t have the design skills to create my own, but a new site - http://visual.ly - hopes to give everyone a chance to create their own infographic.

They’ve got a section where you can enter your own Twitter name to create an infographic (which can also pitch you against another Twitter user). It looks like we’ll be able to make our own infographics based on other topics too soon.

Here’s mine:

If you’re more of a work geek, you might prefer Wordle. Add your favourite words, URL or Delicious username and it’ll create a fabulous word jumble like the below (based on my blog url).

      For some reason it won’t let me register for the full service, so if you have more luck I’d love to see what you can do with it :) The only downside I can see to the service at the moment is that it’s a little slow – but worth it in the end.
