We've all seen an infographic, whether you knew that's what it was called or not. Infographics have been around for years, but have only recently gained popularity. In fact, the very first infographic was published in 1626.

Infographics are constantly being shared, and social media is a platform that you will see them on most often. In fact, an infographic has the potential to reach up to 15 million people! Infographic posts also recieve more traffic than traditional posts on Twitter, Facebook and even LinkedIn.
