How to Create the Perfect Post on Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC]

How to Create the Perfect Post on Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC] | Web 2.0 and Social Media | Scoop.it

Almost everyone has an account on at least one of the major social networks on the Internet either Facebook, Twitter, Google +, or Pinterest. Some people like me have accounts on all four social networks and use the different social networks for different reasons. A main reason we use social networks is to engage with other people either with our friends and family, or anyone who has our same interests.

Here are some things to think about when you are writing a post for your social network.

Well-conceived infographic that gives you all the basic keys to crafting great content on social media.

 

Two things, for Facebook especially:

 

- consider using hashtags. I have noticed they give an extra boost already.

 

- FORGET about these general time table and use the new Facebook Insights to figure out what's the best wtime to reach YOUR community. As it grows, you may find that optimum time changes so make sure you monitor it :)
