Do we use Infographics too much?

Infographics are seemingly such an intrinsic part of the online space they have almost become ubiquitous. Often a great graphic can sell a mediocre idea and push it to viral heights. But do we use them too much? What do you think?

[Video] Captain America: The First Avenger Trailer

I can’t say that I am a big fan of the Captain America comics. I did read a few as a kid but they were hard to find and so I never really got into the series. However the ones I preferred were all set during World War 2. The character always seemed far grittier and more heroic than the whiny, emo 70s version. I couldn’t wait for the flashback sequences to begin. So I admit I had no interest in this film – it wasn’t even on my radar – until I saw this trailer. This is good. I like this. I love how they’ve gone back to the origins of the character. I hope the release can live up to the expectations created by this trailer.

Captain America: The First Avenger is definitely on my radar now.

[Infographic] How Likeable is Each Angry Bird?

I disagree. I actually like the boomerang bird. It takes skill to use. And I love the giant red/brown bird. Red bird not so much. What about you? What’s your favourite?
