Infographic: The compelling case for visual social media

Visual system

What is Facebook? A Swiss Army Knife of a social network (with a host of covert and overt advertising). One of its most powerful features is to store and display photos… and they know it. In its switch to a single stream Timeline, everything got a little more Pinteresting, as does the results page when you look for pictures in Graph Search. We (collectively) like Photos more than reading about (your pet topic here).

I like how this infographic frames visual social media describing its high interest level with tips on how to leverage it. A very cool piece. Let me know what you think about this one.

    This is probably the next big trend in Social Media which will be capitalized on by the Super-Users and Key Influencers.

    For the next level, there is an opportunity to bring it all together – someone just has to figure out how.
