Infographic: How To Get Your Content Shared

Infographic: How To Get Your Content Shared | A Social Media Medley | Scoop.it

If you’ve ever wondered exactly how sites like Mashable get some much social traction, this might just help give you a little insight into it, and to be honest, it’s not an art, it’s a science, knowing post by post exactly what gets the most sharability per post…


From this Infographic, you’ll see that your optimal time to post new content, is when both the US and Europe are awake, that human interest/watercooler type content is by far the most popular content to share, with Images and Video being key, but it’s value depends on the social network.

Ally Greer's curator insight, June 13, 2013 2:01 PM

Here's a great tweet skeleton with some useful advice from Gerry Moran.


Something I'd add to the "Format" section: Decide on what format you're going to use based upon your goals. For me, using facts/stats is great for RTs while using headlines (with a little hint of mystery) is optimal for clicks.


Another tip I'd add is to change up the structure every so often and put the link in the middle of your message (or two micromessages). Per [SEO]Moz's Rand Fishkin, tweets with between text tend to get higher click throughs.

Ken Dickens's curator insight, June 16, 2013 11:57 AM

I am not a big Tweeter, but this was helpful.  I would add have separate types of Tweets for different outcomes:  1. clear information for Re-Tweets 2. Tantalizing headlines for clicks.  And, mix up where you put your links.  -Ken
