In 2011, ADAO launched our first infographic “Beware of the Silent Killer“, with the help of Piktochart we were able to create a compelling visual story. We were thrilled to take complex information about asbestos disease and transform it into a visual that everyone could understand. It’s 2013, and today we are launching our second infographic campaign: “Irrefutable Facts About Asbestos.” Please take a look and share this infographic with your social networks. Why do infographics work? Recently, Social Media Chimps gave six reasons:
- Short Attention Span
- Information Overload
- Easy to Understand
- Reading Retention
- More Engaging
- People Love Sharing Infographics.
What do you think? Do you remember the three irrefutable facts about asbestos? Of course you do. Mesothelioma Awareness Day is September 26. What better way to honor Mesothelioma Warriors than the share these asbestos facts?
To our Twitter followers we encourage you to share the Infographic and tweet out a fact.
