So I want to make a hyperlink with a picture and description that shows on mouse hover but using a particular user profile picture (like HR department director, admin or any other director from other department). And that link have actually be a link to the department where the person is from.

If I get it right I have to create a list containing the URL, the picture, the description, the title and so on. But I don't want this list to be visible to everyone they would only be able to see the webpart.

But what is the webpart I have to use to make something like this. It should look like in the "Geting Started" wePart Something like this: https://officeblogseast.blob.core.windows.net/wp-content/migrated-images/PublishingImages/12-14-12/image-3.png

And I guess I just need to configure the list that it has to use in webpart edit menu.
