Does Your Company’s Graph, Poll or Chart Need a Makeover?

Make your visual aids more simple and easy-to-use.

Don’t you want to get rid of that bowl cut your friend has been sporting since 6th grade? Sometimes visual aids, like people, need a makeover. Among its many benefits, makeovers can give an unsightly graph a quick touch up, get rid of a poll’s unappealing colors or clear out a chart’s numerical clutter. The whole point of the makeover is to try and make what you have better than what it was before.

It is very important for businesses to make their visual aids very simple and easy-to-use so that audiences instantly understand the reason for them. If the visual aids are not easily understood companies risk having their audiences both miss the message and become alienated.

Get Your Message Across

CNN Can't Hold Candle to PerezHilton.com

We know we’ve been a little heavy on the blog-themed posts lately, but we embrace the irony of blogging about blogging. Or something like that. We’re confused, too.

In any case, we recently discovered this ranking of the Top 10 Visited U.S. Blog and Personal Websites, and were taken aback by what and who appeared.

The top three aren’t so surprising. MySpace has the most daily users of any single social networking site – even if Facebook is steadily closing in on its lead. And Blogger and LiveJournal, well, collectively they have a user base in the tens of millions.
