Social Media Trends Infographic Clip

We are always going to be the first to tell you that visual posts on social media are the most effective.

That’s why we have invested so much time in creating tools like Post Designer and Cover Photo Designer to give you an edge when developing your social media presence.

The fine folks over at Pamorama and Vocus seem to agree with us in their roundup of the social media trends of 2014 – they are all visual components!

Our favorite facts from the infographic below:

– Facebook users upload at least 350 million photos EVERY DAY.
It is suggested to take advantage of this fact by sharing others’ photos to drive engagement. This user generated content is a great way to provide original content about your brand and show interaction with your community.

Example: Starbucks posts photos to Facebook from their users on Instagram.

– On Twitter, implementing Twitter Cards will include applicable visual media content.
Instead of just having a photo or just having a link, Twitter Cards gives both to a browsing Twitter user when scrolling through their feed. This is great for impressions AND clicks for your tweets.

Example: Huffington Post includes an image and customized the “title” tag to create an effective and click-worthy call to action.

– YouTube has a video editor that can be used to create new videos from existing content.
To spruce up your video marketing strategy, you can manipulate old videos into new to cut down on time and resources.

Example:  ADT will take bits and pieces of their footage to allow viewers to peek inside homes of professional athletes who use ADT Pulse.
