The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the forty-second #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
Now here’s a service we’ve been waiting for … literally! If you’ve ever seen these cleverly designed infographics floating around the web, you’ve probably wanted to make one for yourself. If you’re not a designer by trade, this more than likely seemed like a daunting task and your idea got pushed to the back burner. Luckily for all of us would-be infographic creators, the wait is over!
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of Riga, Latvia-based data visualization software, infogr.am (@infogram) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a software company helping non-designers to create professionally designed infographics and visualizations in minutes.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a software company helping non-designers to create professionally designed infographics and visualizations in minutes” in the same sentence.
Get started creating interactive infographics at infogr.am!
