Looking for a graphic to illustrate a blog post you’re writing or a presentation you’re creating?
Peruse the archives at comScore Data Mine, a service that offers free statistical data in colorful charts and graphics. If you use one, you must credit the company.
This is a new service, judging from the archives, so you won’t find a lot of topics from which to choose. But over time, this could be a valuable graphics tool. I found some nifty charts on the demographics of Facebook’s visitors, the Top 10 coupon sites, time spent online in Latin America and online travel spending in the United States.

- Advertising Africa
- Middle East

- North America
- Online Video
- Social Networking
- U. S.
