As a result, users can add different layers of content. Additionally, this latest edition enables users to share infographics on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as embedding them on websites. As such, while images are not always search-friendly, the new Piktochart improves searchability, which can help reinforce its users’ marketing strategy.
