I’m very excited that yet another graphic designer has taken me up on my offer to work with me on creating a graphic that accurately represents the results of one of my research papers. This one is based on my paper Too much face and not enough books: The relationship between multiple indices of Facebook use and academic performance published in Computers in Human Behavior.
I really would love to see this become a trend– infographics that are as much info as they are graphics. Elsewhere, I picked apart an infographic reporting some of my research on Facebook. I also lamented how it would be nice to see an infographic that included a more balanced approach to research findings (including limitations). Lucky for me, graphic designers read my blog. The first infographic based on my research did a great job summarizing the findings of my recent Facebook and student engagement paper.
I’ve got some ideas for infographics based on recent data that I’ll be working on in the near future. What data would you like to see represented in an infographic? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below.
