It’s super simple…. adding an image to Facebook rocks! If you are wanting more eyes on your Facebook updates, more likes, more shares AND you want to be able to edit your update, add an image when posting to Facebook!
Here’s the skinny….
Why adding an image to your Facebook update rocks!
1. Facebook likes images
It seems that updates that are accompanied by an image receive higher views from those that follow you. I know there is a science to this, however algorithms and all that gobbledygook terminology is beyond me. What I know is that when I post an image with my update I get more eyes on my posts.
2. Your people like images
When you post an image on Facebook it gives the opportunity for your followers (and their friends) to see a little more of your personality. Images also get shared more often than updates without an image. Use a tool such as picmonkey.com to add your watermark or logo to your image. That way if it gets shared your branding is shared as well.
3. YOU will like images
My favorite reason for adding an image to nearly every update that you post to your Facebook page is that when you add an image, you are able to go back and edit your text. Normally when you post an update on Facebook there is no way to currently edit your entry. But with an image, you can edit the image description which in turn changes your update. Ta-dah!
BONUS! Be a Facebook power user and upload your images/updates all in one fell swoop by scheduling your posts. Here’s the how-to on that!
Until next week…
