Don’t share that infographic spam
Won’t you share my infographic, please?
The pitch always seems so friendly and flattering. Someone out there on the Web has noticed that you are interested in a particular topic. It could be the digital divide, or climate change, or Elon Musk, or even the Oxford Comma. It could be pinned to the news of the day or something that you might have blogged about five years ago. It could seem completely random.
But the pitch itself rarely varies. "Allison" or "Alexandra" or "Tony" represents a team of designers and researchers that has created an "infographic" that they'd love to "share" with you. Score!
