What, did they outsource it to another country? There are English errors in almost every entry. Disgraceful.

I would say that if the artwork is really entertaining, it could still pass as useful, even if it could be represented in a simpler chart, but in most cases these types of infographics just balloon out some stats and don’t contribute anything of value.

Look at this one: http://www.nextgenerationfood.com/news/10-most-expensive-pints-in-the-world/. Repackaged stats, as simple as possible. To be fair, on the site itself, it’s presented as a graphic, and only submitted to Digg with the word “infographic” to describe it. It is just a glorified bar graph, but it did well because the art was fun.

Compared to infographics where the form of the information really is crucial to its understanding, graphics like this pale in comparison, as your link suggests.

Thanks again for the link!

There’s nothing here that couldn’t be shown in a bar chart.
