Kiss my what?

Carol, I agree. I spent much time flying around to see what makes people interact with posts, images, etc.. and age range has a lot to do with it, especially when it comes to Facebook, YouTube

and Twitter!

Patients -A Requirement! What Are Your Thoughts?

This morning, I set out to capture birds in midflight capturing those wonderful movements. After several failed attempts, I believe I finally have one that is acceptable.

Most mornings, I would grab Joe and head out to the patio, then moments later birds would appear flying around, playing/fighting in mid flight and this one bird would always perch itself on a tree limb near me. As soon as I would go inside to grab my camera, the bird would be gone. Other mornings, I would pretend to go inside, patio door noise open and close while the bird would just stay perched. I would bang Joe on the metal of the BBQ and nothing, no movement only to look down at me as though it were mocking me.

I was determined, this morning for some reason and this time besides my companion Joe,  sexy Carmelita joined Joe and I. However, after a while, I soon realized I would have to abandon my faithful companion Joe that has always been there every morning. I turned my hat around, grabbed Carmelita by the hand and ventured out. I fondled Carmelita buttons manually. We walked closer and closer but not too close. I kneeled on one knee as though I were going to propose while Carmelita’s eyes extended to the max.

There was silence as though it was just the two of us, we waited patiently for the right moment, thirty minutes went by then the magic started.

What People Share! –Part 2

The trials of harnessing more views and shares!

Most of us try are best to gain more views attempting to draw a larger crowd to our Blogs or Websites, while some of us maybe content with the smaller following.

Carp, fish, family parks

Most of us use the tools of the trade to maximize potential viewers, from Facebook to Instagram among other platforms. We make our final edits thinking it is a piece of art. We publish across the available tools at our disposal. Then we wait like a patient Fisherman anticipating the large catch.

However most of the time  it may feel more like a trickle of viewers rather than a line waiting to see Star Wars or to obtain the latest Apple gadget.

 

One area to help to defeat this is to know your “Age Target Range”  Sure, most of us may have set an Audience Target that might like what we have to offer but age range also plays an important role when trying to attract new viewers and followers.

Weather it be a Facebook Fan Page, your YouTube video channel or your Blogs, age range deals with a certain philological aspect of different interests.

 

 

 

What People Share! –Part 1

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.

The Writer;s Circle

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!

photography, photos, videos

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 Candace_Bluecheckmarknews, 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 Candace_viewsI 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.
