    Please stop using these senseless 'info graphics '. They don't present any thing graphically - no clear summary icons, no informative graphs. They're just a means is spicing up your content with color and image. But they are not responsive (the experience on a mobile phone is shocking, forcing lots of zoom and scroll) and probably not very friendly for users of assistive technology.

      Hi there, thanks for your feedback - we do label all of our articles containing infographics with the [Infographic] tag you'll see in this headline, which is worth looking out for if you want to avoid seeing this type of content in future.

        The problem is that some info graphics are useful - they present information in a way that adds to understanding the content. The graphics show relative sizes, or other key information that helps identify trends or items that I am interested in drilling further into. Others are just a waste of time. I'm asking that you be more selective, and not just dismiss my comment as 'oh you can avoid them based on the tag'.

        I suggest you test any info graphic on a mobile and determine whether there is any useful content that can be derived at very small text scales. At the moment they seem to be used just because they look pretty.

        I understand many of them are just reposts from other sites (which you can't do anything about), but please apply some judgement!
