Social Network Trend And Images
Images absolutely dominate common sharing on the Social Networks — and it does make sense. If you think about it, we are blasted with messages every minute of the day — we need a break from this onslaught and what better way to serve up that respite than with an image — be it funny or just downright stupid it’s going to be passed along numerous times. Chances are, if you take a look at your own Facebook wall you will notice that trend — the post with the most shares, likes, and comments are usually images.
Why Post Images?
A picture is worth a thousand words is a common saying which rings true — A complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image. It is well-known that visualization makes it possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly. We live in a fast-paced environment. People simply do not have the time to read every message or to watch every video. Never mind, some of us have Facebook walls that move at lightning speed. Can you recall how often you have said — I’ll read or watch that later, but never get around to doing it. This is something we are all guilty of doing but if the truth be known we are just too busy to fit everything into our tight schedule.
The bottom line is, latch onto the expression “Use a picture. It’s worth a thousand words.” On seeing an image one can instantly make a decision on whether or not to like or share that link. That being said, you need to post images if you want to pull in a lot of likes and shares and have your social media posts go viral. So let’s jump on the bandwagon — add an image to every post and take advantage of the prospect of having your post get additional likes and shares over and over again.
