Facebook has become one of the most recognizable social sites in the world, if not the most. Some people live by it while some will not have anything to do with it. If you are one of those people who live by the social media sword, then this blog is definitely a must read.
Your Facebook posts may not be getting as many reads as you may like. In fact, you may be wondering why you have over 1,000 friends however you are only getting a handful of responses on a post. Blair Stover has posted these hints to let you know how to maximize your efforts in posting on Facebook.
When should I post on Facebook for max exposure?
– Look for the “Insights” tab. You will find this on Facebook’s page on the right side. You are going to want to look at the analytics to see what posts have gotten the most impression/exposure.
– Look for any pattern that will show you increased exposure.
– Read “Science of Timing” by Dan Zarella as this book will show you how to use your findings to your advantage.
Craft your questions properly and keep your posts very short
– Remember that a person’s attention span may be shorter than another so you have to have information that can capture someone’s attention for a long amount of time.
– If you cannot do this, keep it short and to the point. Mainly 80 characters is a great way to keep your people engaged.
Use videos and photos often
– People love photos and videos more than reading because most make a connection with this sort of media rather than reading.
