I’ve been experimenting with the free version of ThingLink, a tool for creating interactive assets which can be shared and embedded and which drive users deeper into a site.
Imagine the scenario. Your journalists are working on an important story. They have loads of interactive features, video and images. You’d love to have a special report with a dedicated landing page pulling it all together, but you don’t have the resources or the expertise. Well, a site called Publicate might have solved the problem.
Rich infographics that used to require a skilled graphics artist, and which could take hours to create, can now be produced in minutes with free tools.
