“Infographics” is short for “information graphics”. This means charts, graphs, diagrams and so on. These are an excellent way of conveying complex and interesting information information. For example, Marca published this chart showing how much money Real Madrid had spent in each of the last 10 seasons.
If you find a good info graphic that will grab readers attention (the Marca spending chart linked to above is a good example) then you can copy the image and re-publish it in a Soccerlens post. Or, if you’ve got design skills of your own then you can take a set of data, like say the 10 most expensive transfer fees of all time, and make an infographic of your own.
Just like a shirt post or babe post, an infographic post still needs some text. Use a paragraph or maybe two to describe what the data in the infograph represents, and why that data is important, then insert the image of the inforgraphic. Where appropriate, you could also include a paragraph beneath the image of the infographic, discussing any possible conclusions you can make based on the data.
If you’ve taken the infographic image from elsewhere, then remember to link to the source.
