Words or Pictures?


We know that the Internet is dominated by text as it is a clear and concise way of feeding viewers with the right information. However is it still true pictures can speak more than a 1000 words?

Consider the Google business model. It makes most of its money from advertising and this is done with a combination of attractive images along with snappy text.

I personally think you have to remeber a combination of the following,

Include an interesting image and capture attention to your post!

This one caught my attention! can you imagine the smell?
