    We live in the age of data collection and content creation. We create 1.5 billion pieces of content on Facebook, 140 million Tweets and 2 million YouTubes in just one day. And we love infographics (dataporn) that combine ideas, stories and insights into our behaviors.

    Today, we think in a completely new way, or as one startup likes to say, we think “Visual.ly”.  Visual.ly is a new platform for exploring, sharing and promoting great visualizations. It’s also a service that connects datavis pros with advertisers and publishers looking for compelling content.

    “Because in the future we imagine an immersive world of interactive visualization everywhere,” says Visual.ly.
