Infogr.am

We hear it every day.  Data.  Data-driven decisions.  Inforgraphics have become a powerful way of disseminating data in a visually appealing fashion.    It is a good way to get data in a format that makes it easy to understand the story behind the data.  Infogr.am is super easy and the user interface is well designed.  It's more "interactive" rather than "data" centered.  There are 6 different template/styles to choose from.  Once you choose your template, you add in your data and comments and you have a great visual that you can embed in a website or share.   You can also take a screenshot and add to any presentation.
One thing to note:  the privacy controls are limited so it is better suited to visualizing data for public use.
