Who Still Runs Infographics?

-- Updated Jun. 1, 2018 -- Which publications still run infographics? A subscriber recently asked us this good question. The answer is, more than you might think. We found 14 publications that ran infogs recently as edit-driven contributed content, across both B2B and B2C.
