Are there things that Silk cannot display?Visualizing data6Silk can only use the data that it understands.
This is the case when the data appears on the right column of a given page. 
Can I add more facts to an overview?Visualizing data2Yes, click 'add a tag' and type 'Capital' or 'Head of State' to add these facts to your overview. 
Can I change the type of visualization?Visualizing data4Sure! Click the icons to switch between different kinds of visualizations.
Not every kind of data plays well with every type. You can't place numbers on a map for example.
More kinds of visualizations are on their way! 
Can I change visualizations in a Silk site?Visualizing data7Yes, hover your mouse over a visualization on a page (such as a table or a graph)
and click 'Open widget in Silk explorer'. NB: this won't change the original visualization.

First find the 'Head of State' tag, then click the arrow next to it (or press →) to display its facts.
