For example, an Infographic on The 4th Of July, is definite to kindle mass interest in the US thus making the Infographic go viral. Americans and those who are interested about US history would love to read and know unknown facts and factoids about the independence of the USA.
Or, for example, what if an Infographic is made just before broadly celebrated St. Valentine’s Day? Why shouldn’t it be watched by a mass number of people? Of course it will! And in that case the range of topics can be infinite. It can be an Infographic dealing with best and worst gifts for your better half, or an Infographic about revenue earned by confectioners and florists on that one single day, or even an Infographic on top ways to make someone your Valentine. Or take an example of Infographics on Olympics, or America’s favorite Super Bowl. All have high chances to go viral when the idea and design are great.
