Usage Story of Info Icon
These days, asking any kind of question to an actual person might seem strange to anyone with a smartphone, i.e. everyone. Browsing through an encyclopedia to find answers sounds very much like the work of an archaeologist. Encyclopedias in today’s setting are basically “material remains of the human past,” as evidenced by the amount of dust they’ve gathered over the last two decades. Even the almanac, encyclopedia’s much cooler, younger cousin, suffered the same tragic fate in the recent years.
Every information you ever want to know about is already online, probably even the answers to your deepest, darkest questions. Information is literally milliseconds away—at the same speed of a blink of an eye.
Information is commonly denoted by the lowercase letter I, with some variations on the image behind the letter I.
For more specific and unique purposes, there are other info symbols within reach:
- Error alert
- Online support gal
- Address book
And the best thing about looking for information online? It won’t judge you for your dumb questions. Just don’t read the comments section, ever.
