Social Media Best Practices for Infographics

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Sharing your infographic that’s hosted on your website/blog and engaging the social sharing potential is key to maximizing the work you put in to creating your infographics.  

Each social network has different image display requirements.

For example, tall infographics do not present well on Facebook. Facebook outlines horizontal images and a ratio of 1200 w x 627 h, meaning you may need to create some sharing images to drive social viewers to the main infographic.


The team at Lemonly put together a great infographic covering keys for social sharing on:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • LinkedIn

93% Of Facebook Users Share Shopping Suggestions This Season: Infographic | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
The holiday shopping season isn’t over yet, and social media and marketing agency Mr Youth found that users of Facebook and other social media are super shoppers.

A whopping 93 percent of Facebook users have made or received shopping recommendations this holiday season, a figure much higher than what we’ve seen previously.
That comes from an online survey conducted by Mr Youth, which also found that 38 percent of Facebook users posted on a brand page during the three weeks leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, brands only respond to 55 percent of potential customers’ posts on the social network (uh, oh!).

6 Myths of Social Sharing (infographic)

6 Myths of Social Sharing (infographic) | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Social sharing buttons on websites account for less than 30 percent of all sharing, and links shared on Thursday get peak engagement and the longest-lasting traffic.

Those are only two of the results of a RadiumOne study focusing on sharing behavior. RadiumOne is an enterprise advertising platform that operates the Po.st social sharing and URL-shortening platform — which naturally generates a lot of data on what people share, how they share, and what kind of sharing is the most effective.

I see a lot of great blog posts go to waste simply because the writer or marketer didn’t understand how content marketing works (if this includes you, read this post on 98 Content Marketing Articles to Make You an Insomniac). These people are relying on the “build it and they will come mentality” which just doesn’t work unless you have a giant powerhouse with a massive existing readership.

So how can you get the word out about your latest and greatest?

There are numerous inforgraphics floating around the web but the theme for most of them this month is a summary of the events of 2011. But the people at Clearspring, makers of the widget ‘AddThis’ have compiled one that shows the sharing trends of the past year.
It makes for some interesting reading including Tumblr sharing growing by 1299.5 per cent, Google sharing has declined by 8 per cent, even with the +1 button they’ve incorporated into all their services and sharing via mobile devices has grown by six times over the past year. It’s a short but sweet infographic which gives a nice indication as to what trends will occur next year.

Timing social media posts perfectly

Timing social media posts perfectly | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

When it comes to posting things on large social media platforms, especially Twitter and Facebook, it’s really important to post at the right time if you’re looking for interaction. Of course it makes no sense to send out a message when people are asleep or when they’re eating lunch or dinner, but when exactly is the perfect time to send out an update? Well luckily, KissMetrics has done some research and they’ve pretty much nailed down the opportune times to send out Tweets and Facebook posts.
