More and more people choose an infographic to share information in a clear, schematic and visual way. The boom of social networks such as Flickr, Pinterest or Instagram, added to the fact that an image always has more impact than a text, causes any company, be it of any kind, tend to use infographics to share content, even better if we count with a graphic designer that makes clear the look and feel of the brand as well as the philosophy of the company in the scheme.
If we focus on the definition of Wikipedia, "the infographic is a form of visual representation of objects and / or events in which a description, story or process in a graphic manner and interacting with texts". An infographic, in essence, is a way of offering information through a schematic presentation that summarizes data, explaining them through simple graphics. Thus, the user can understand them and assimilate them in a faster way.
What are the advantages of using infographics?
In addition to the one that we have already pointed out, there are other advantages in the use of infographics to provide information of companies to their followers:
- The audience assimilates more information in less time, thanks to its schematic nature.
- If we dedicate ourselves to teaching, infographics allow students to develop cognitive functions (evaluate, analyze and represent information).
- In companies and organizations, infographics build brand image. They are a very powerful marketing tool.
Steps to create a good infographic
The keys to make a good infographic, to provide our followers with the information they want about our brand or company, or how to do some work, are to know well the topic that is going to be treated and also to whom the information is directed. It is good to make an outline of previous steps before sharing the infographic.
1 - Choice of theme
It seems absurd to raise it, but you must specify the theme of the infographic itself before you start to design it. We can talk about the results of the organization, a complete study topic, how to use one of our products or services or any other topic related to our company. We can also make an infographic focusing on one of the trends of the moment on the Internet. Thus, we will get more traffic for our website, as it will be a great way to attract users to our brand. To be aware of web search trends in real time, you can use tools such as Google Trends or RSS readers like Feedly or Flipboard. And for more information about the making tools of infographics, you can get recommendation given by Feras Antoon.
2 - Know the audience
This is common for any communicative process. For making communication effective, we must know our receiver; it is the only way. Therefore, once the subject is chosen, we have to think about who will be interested in the infographic, thus determining the style and the form that should be given to it.
We must also think about the final goal we want to achieve with design: is it to get more followers in our social media profiles? To publicize a product as a promotional element? Do we want it to be shared and become viral? For each objective, we will choose the type of infographic that best suits our needs:
some months ago, the design of my family site changed. Now, it shows only the header image, my photo and recent activity list. There were much more features on the site before, e.g. I could display who visits my site.
If foreign person visits my site, he still sees the old design. If I visit it, I see something different.
Is there a way to switch to the old design? Thank you.
Above, Galdámez Acevedo is correct. Galdámez is the surname of his father. Acevedo is the surname of his mother. In everyday life, he was known as Señor Galdámez or Abuelito (grandpa) Galdámez. He signed his name as Guillermo Galdámez A. But he never signed it as Acevedo. None of the Latin American men I ever knew or still know use their second surname, only the first surname. Even though legally, both names identify the individual.
The Latin Americans nearly always use the name of the father, if known. Otherwise, the child has only one surname, which is the surname of the mother.
However, below, José Acevedo () is not a name by which neither he nor anyone else ever addressed him. Both names refer to the same person and both are labeled "her father", but it is easy to become confused, that maybe they are two different persons.
So whether the names be shown as Galdámez/Acevedo or Galdámez-Acevedo or Galdámez Acevedo, both names boxed or in italics or bolded or whatever, maybe someone can figure out how to show both names as surnames, like the the old now outdated, antique and ancient PAF used to include both names in a surname box.
Hi, I deleted my online tree and uploaded a new version of the same tree. The tree has some 9.000 persons in it but after more than three months not a single smartmatch has occurred. No other matches either. The old tree (with more or less the same content) had several thousands matches
I cannot seem to add half siblings to my family tree and that's all I have. I have added a half sister and then tried to remove her connection to one of my parents and that won't work either. Can anyone help? Is anyone at MyHeritage paying attention?
I imported a gedcom tree to MyHeritage from genealogy software, but when I navigate to myself in the tree it asks if I'd like to invite myself to my site and talks about me as if I was another person.
Is there a way to say "this is me" ?
I have a one-person family tree that was created when I imported my DNA data, but I want to delete that and link the DNA data to my imported tree with 800 people on it. This site is not very intuitive. Or maybe I'm missing something obvious.
How do I arrange for the preservation and continuity of my site? I want to give instructions to my heirs on how to claim ownership of the site, even though I don't know at present which one of them would be willing to assume its care. (At least two of them are Mac users.)
The site treats both parents as one entity. It does not give the option for step-parents. You should be able to control the connection between parents individually without it automatically creating connections with the partner. For instance, it is creating two issues with my tree.
Firstly, my partner has a son that is not mine. If I add him as her son or her as his mother. It adds me as his father. If I connect him to his father it won't allow me to connect him to his mother without first disconnecting him from his father.
Secondly, I have not added my daughters' mother. It is automatically adding my partner as her mother. this incorrect
This needs to be changed so that parents can be dealt with individually without it affecting the other parent
I am getting an error "Date of Description of Douglas Paul Dietz (January 31 1898) occurred before his birth date (February 1 1947) Tip: Correct date of Description or birth date of Douglas Paul Dietz" when I run the Tree Consistency Checker.
I cannot find this January 31, 1898 error anyplace.
I've created a family tree with my wife and our ancestors and descendents, including siblings of each entry (including siblings of ancesors and descendents). How do I publish (create on the web) a subset of this tree displaying only a single person with that person's ancestors and descendents, including all siblings in the tree? For example, I'd like to publish only my side of the family tree (excluding my wife's ancestors) including everyone in the tree related to me (ancestors, descendents and siblings of everyone in the tree).
I just created a GEDCOM that marked my living relatives as "private" then uploaded it to MyHeritage. But when I view my tree online I am shocked to see my living relatives all have their names showing.
I hope this is only the view I see, and that everyone else only sees "private" or "living" or whatever, and their names are not visible. Please confirm asap. Thanks.
I have recently started to form my family tree. Unfortunately I have made one or two small errors, which I tried to rectify by removing data from them but it didn't remove the icon on my tree. Please can anyone tell me how I can do this as in some cases it looks as though my relative has more than one spouse etc. or in one case more children than they really do have.
I like to keep a clean and tidy tree as it could be confusing to others. Everyone makes mistakes now and then so this must have cropped up before. Please advise for the future.
I have corrected my family tree many times, both on the website and in the Family Tree Builder. It keeps marking my parents, my grandma on my mom's side, my brother and my brother's wife as deceased. They are all living and it's frustrating to see that it changed back. Has anyone else encountered this? What can I do to make it keep my changes?
I've spent days uploading supporting documents/photos to family members. Most of them seem to be gone / no longer associated with that family member. Anyone else having problems? Their "tech support" phone number just says that they are not available.
