Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC]

I’m sure you know that visual content on social media can massively improve engagement. But just how important is it?

How about this: the human brain processes images 60,000 times faster than text. Accordingly, 90 percent of all information that comes to the brain is visual.

On the web, it’s estimated that 55 percent of all traffic will be video by 2016, and mobile video traffic will increase by 1800 percent. YouTube, Instagram and Vine are currently the best platforms to maximise video engagement, so are you utilising them to their full potential in your marketing campaigns?
