Social Media Posts

Social Media Posts and Sharing

Facebook and Google+

I think there are three elements which allow easy posting on Facebook and Google+ to get a message out.

  1. Photo or graphic (can come from the linked article)
  2. A “taster”, “teaser” or “hook” – a few lines of text encouraging someone to explore more
  3. A link for more information (the “URL” or “website address”).

Twitter

Twitter needs to convey the message more clearly in less text (140 characters or less) but can add the same elements: photo, text and link.

Blog

For our blog, a posting will need a photograph or infographic which is free for us to use (not subject to copyright) – so ideally a picture you, a friend or family member took to illustrate the point.

A “teaser” is good as we can use it on social media to link to the article.

Sharing is caring

If you wish to share something, please submit at least the URL for more information plus the “taster” or “teaser” text. In many cases a photograph will not be needed as Facebook or Google+ will select one from the article. For Twitter a photograph or infographic is optional. A good “teaser” plus the URL is often enough on Twitter to encourage clicks.
