This infographic presents some dangers that affect teens due to their internet use. The piece is clean and has a nice balance of white space in the layout, which gives the design room to breathe. The copy is clear and concise. While the subject matter is a bit inconsistent between the title and the copy (children vs. teens), the data specifies what age groups it refers to.
