Ever created an Infographic?  You know…one of those graphs that combine Data & Graphics that give you that “Wow” impression when it loads a full web page? lol  There are some tools out there to help create specialized Infographics such as Resume’s or LinkedIn Profiles.  Or you can create your own with a graphics program such as Photoshop.  

Visual.ly is now rolling out a tool to easily create Infographics and makes it even easier to share it across your Social Media Networks, Blogs, Websites, email, etc.  They currently only have a limited amount of tools to start, but they promise a full list of new tools coming soon.

I decided to try it out.  One of their featured tools is to compare Twitter accounts with a SXSW Theme.  So I compared myself to my Twitter Friend Irene Kimmel (@irenekimmel).  The output was very impressive! (See below.).  My only complaint is that since I changed my Twitter Username last week, the graphic is only showing one week of stats.  Not sure if this is a Twitter bug or Visual.ly issue since by changing my name I kept my years and years of Twitter history.

So what do you think?
