My personal favourite is the Olympics sharing one. Everybody seems to love a good infographic and all of these are really engaging and make for great reading. The loss of national productivity caused by the Olympics is a very interesting figure but slightly worth it maybe.

Great summary - love cool infographics! ROI as Return On Infographics struck a special chord - clever idea!

The first one (from Kissmetrics), however, is not an infographic and should not be included. Part of the definition of an infographic is that it includes statistics, and that is largely what is visualizes. Otherwise it's a vertical cartoon. Because calling it infographic makes it more popular, f.eks for retweets, a lot of people are cheating now, calling any visualization infographic. Let's keep the definition clean! There must be some other catchy, tweetable phrase we give these other illustations?
