My preferred format for consuming online information is Informational graphics because these graphics conveys more information at single glance. If the inforamtion graphic is not clear then I try to read the news analysis article to know more about it.
I think pretty much we all agree with you. Yes, they complement each other. I would like to know what this poll is for, as it seems quite strange that we are asked to choose only one, as you have also noted.
@Hawk I agree. It would have made more sene to set this up as "check all that apply" rather than forcing people to select only one choice. I also use a variety of sources and would include social media, as it often alerts me to links of interest.
I don't have a preference for blogs over news analysis or any of the other formats. I think they are all useful ways to consume information and I am surprised we are being asked to select one format over others. They complement each other. No?

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
