Create Hashtag Infographics with Visual.ly

Infographics are all over the web these days. Now Visual.ly makes it easy to make your own Infographics from Twitter hashtags. To create an infographic with Visual.ly just sign-in with your Twitter ID, enter a hashtag that you want to see visualized, and select an infographic template. I created a simple infographic using the hashtag #edchat.


Applications for Education
Right now Visual.ly has limited application beyond visualizing hashtags, but hopefully they'll add more functionality in the future. In the meantime, Visual.ly could be a good way to visualize trends in current events for a social studies classroom. If your school uses Twitter to broadcast messages, like Patrick Larkin's school does, Visual.ly could be useful too.
