The trials of harnessing more views and shares!
We have many mediums to utilize as tools to help our quest of gaining more exposure, but what do people share, what are they interested in? What compels one to not only click the like button, but also share within that medium and on other platforms?
Yesterday, in an earlier post, Returned From Hiatus I mentioned that I have been studying trends as to what most people share besides just clicking that like button and moving on to never look back. This brings me to an even earlier post I wrote in October 2015, What’s hot and What’s Not? where I mentioned Leisel’s Nightmare Before Christmas Sugar Cookies that did receive several external views from Reddit and today when I look and the general stats that anyone can see, thirty-six people clicked the like button, including myself and it did get shared out to Facebook eighty (80) times! I wonder how well it might have faired, if it were turned into a video, after all she did mention that icing got in her hair.
Here are a few examples, that I pulled this morning, the first one is from The Writer’s Circle an online magazine.
From this image we see,Four thousand likes and 1,743 shares since The Writer’s Circle posted just ten hours ago when I captured the image.
Although, this one post of theirs did rather well, they have others that were not well received with only 250 likes and no shares.
Lets’ take a look at Photography!
This one received over 1 million views!
Now let’s get inside the actual page and see the real stats.
1 million views with over 22-thousand shares.
Most of us have probably heard of Candace Payne, who one day decided to use the new Facebook Live Video feature. Now, soak this one in, on May 19th of this year at 2:24PM Candace decided to make a video out of the blue with no real cause but just to do it, in my opinion, this one video changed her life. She has been in the news, The Facebook Creator himself invited her to their headquarters to have some fun and she even has the Blue Badge Check Mark. Candace, to date is the only person to achieve 144 million views with the new Live feature on Facebook. As I look at her page I see 2.6 million likes with shares that surpass my digits of counting.
The video is here incase you missed it: You will need to scroll down to May 19th posts.
