Gino Fransman's insight:
a wondeful collection of writings along a rather difficult journey, insightful, descriptive and ultmately helpful.
Facebook: “When possible, don’t write more than five lines or 400 characters with spaces,” writes Vo. “Speak in a friendly and casual tone. Use image posts more often than link posts or text-only posts. Use formatting such as paragraph spacing and list format.”
Twitter: Short and sweet. “The best tweets are under 115 characters in length. Tweets are very news friendly, so headlines work well,” writes Vo. “Don’t forget to add a trending hashtag.”
LinkedIn: This network is for professionals. Write news briefs or internal information emails to your customers. “Think about how you would sell the article to a CEO,” writes Vo.
Instagram: Love the hashtags on Instagram. Your best bet: use 11 hashtags per Instagram post. “Don’t worry about the text so much as choosing the best hashtags,” write Vo.”
