Make Your Own Infographics With Visual.ly

The platform launched in private Beta in 2011. Since then, Visual.ly has helped create 11,000 infographics and attracted 2 million visitors per month, according to TechCrunch.

The new creation tools are aimed at the casual social media user. A template called “Dr. Visually’s Automagical Facebook Monsterizer” will analyze your Facebook profile and photos to determine what kind of monster you are. (If you are using Facebook, it is assumed that you are a monster of some kind.) The application connects to Face.com, a free facial recognition software, to dig through your photos and figure out whether you were smiling in the picture and if you were wearing glasses. Once collected, the data is used to create a cartoon-like representation of your inner Facebook monster, complete with accessories.

If you can’t get enough infographics, you’re in luck. After much anticipation, the data visualization platform Visual.ly has released some new tools for organizing data from your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Visual.ly is a place to upload, view, create, and share visual data with other people and companies on the Web. Many online publications like Mashable, social media marketing companies like Flowtown, and even traditional news sources like the Wall Street Journalhave used the platform to make infographics that readers love to click on. (Flowtown’s “The Joy of Social Media: How Bob Ross Sees It” is a personal favorite.) The templates are almost the right size for a WordPress blog and even when condensed, they still look great on Pinterest.
