Inforgraphics are a lot of fun, aren’t they? Utilizing the natural sharing abilities of the web in a more direct way than just endlessly listing off facts, they are as interesting as they are educational.
Because Pinterest is entirely based around images, it was only a matter of time before these visual data wonders started flooding in.
If you are looking for even more visual data in your streams and if you are looking for more connections on Pinterest, here are 15 more boards to consider:
1. [block]2[/block] – Brian Solis
The term “useful” is pretty subjective but I can see these all being helpful for anyone in the modern age. They are primarily related to social media and technology, and are all very high quality. Several of them are related to Facebook, such as how to embed a mini sight onto your Timeline.
There are only eight pins currently listed. What makes this especially interesting is the fact that it also has more than 2,000 followers on the tiny board. That should give you an idea as to the quality of what Brian Solis has posted.
2. [block]3[/block] – Neal Schaffer
Here we find some of the best social media infographics on Pinterest. They are beautifully illustrated, relevant and full of tons of information in the different fields of the subject. It isn’t all based on marketing, either, which is a definite problem with other boards on the topic.
The great thing about Neal is that he is an awesome conversationalist. If you love discussions, you should follow Neal’s board. Most of his pins have great comments to read through.

A much larger board, this one has over 300 current pins on topics all over the spectrum. At first glance I see one on social awkwardness, teens and video and the impact of the adoption of cloud technology on the web. Quite a collection of topics, and that only scratches the surface.
The only problem here is that it is so varied in subject that it isn’t easy to find something specific. But if you just want to see a large collection of cool visual data, this is the place for you.
4. [block]5[/block] – Andrew Smith
For those of you looking for SEO, PR or marketing infographics, this board has you covered. There are over a hundred of them discussing the topic, from social media marketing to the basics of advertising both online and offline for a balanced campaign. All accompanied by the kind of good graphics you have come to expect from the genre.
Some are kind of hit and miss, but I would say more than half are worth looking at.
5. [block]6[/block] – Group Board
Because there are dozens of contributors on this board, there are hundreds of infographics all collected for you to peruse through. But since it is an open board with many contributors, there are also many different subjects covered – which is both a blessing and a curse when it comes to finding what you are looking for.
Each infographic there has specific tags, so it is faster just to do a search than try to go through them all.
6. [block]7[/block] – Emma Woolley
This board has been focused on finding “interesting means of communication” that break from the norm we have all come to expect. Most are about social media (of course), with some focused on marketing within this format. It also have a few impressive ones based around analytics.
All in all, this is a place for businesses that want to learn a bit more about social networking exploitation.
7. [block]8[/block] – Group Board
Another board which is run by a collective of people, hence the variety of sources is what makes the board worth a follow.
The focus of the board is social media recruitment and employment topics.
8. [block]9[/block] – The Catalyst Partnership
If you are a heavy Facebook user, be sure to follow this board. It has the collection of various Facebook stats visualized in different ways. You are sure to find something revealing about your favorite network there.
