    Hi, I made an infographic/flowchart today using adobe illustrator

    its basically a lighthearted attempt to distinguish different types of social network users

    i am 13 and not like a professional designer but i am pretty proud of it

    I like it.

    But IMO, there is one flaw.

    The graphic is titled, "What Kind of Social Networker are You?" But it really only describes people who use MySpace.

    Seems to me that the title should be ""What Kind of MySpace User are You?"

    Thus, rendering the first two questions superfluous.

    It's really quite nice!

    As citizenzen said regarding Myspace, I would recommend changing the first question - as it cancels out too many people right off the bat. Unless this is mainly a criticism of Myspace, then by all means keep it as it is.

    The main thing that I would work on is the white space. Some areas have a nice amount of white space which allow our eyes to focus and settle an an area in the design, but some places are extremely tight.

    Keep up the great work!

    I'm old and a non user of social networking - but shouldn't it say "Anarchist's of the social networking world" not "Anarchist's of the social networking word".

    I like it though.

    I like the color and the design of the elements. It does end up rather tall, and like Apple Key said, there are some areas that are quite cramped.

    I did notice a logical problem though - The "Yes" branch of "Is it relevant?" leads into another question's answers rather than to another question.

    Also, are there some reasons that 'Yes' is on the left and others where 'Yes' is on the right?

    I'm no expert on infographics, but that appears inconsistent to me.

    I'd always have 'Yes' on the left and 'No' on the right.
