Making Social Media Show Your Best Light
Social media isn’t just a passing fad, it has become economically integral—if you don’t believe that, just look how the economy was affected when Facebook shut down for around six hours in early October, 2021.
Nobody uses phone books anymore, Facebook has outpaced the function of yearbooks in schools (to a degree), and more social media outlets develop all the time. Obviously, you want to assure whatever social media outlets you use are painting you in your best light; whether personally or professionally. Following we’ll explore five tips to help you do this.
Memes, Memes, and More Memes
- Memes are a lot of fun, and if you’re sharing them on your social media profile, you’re going to get a lot of traffic that may not have explored what you have to offer otherwise. Here’s a link that goes into deeper detail on what memes are, how they work, and associated information. If you’re not getting the engagement you want, you can always share a few “dank” memes.
- Fill Out All The Profile Information
You don’t have to fill out all your profile information honestly. You certainly can, but you have the option to entertain yourself and others who follow you as well. When your profile is all the way filled out, varying algorithms and moderators will give associated accounts greater precedence owing to the likelihood of legitimacy.
Of course, if you’re using social media for business purposes, it’s smart to be honest in social media account design; but it’s okay to have a little fun with certain profiles if that suits you. Just be sure that, whatever you do, you fill out profile information as completely as is prudent, or otherwise fits the needs of professional interaction with social media platforms.
- Keep Relationship Possibilities In Mind
Especially if you’re in your thirties, social media dating culture represents one of your best avenues to a fulfilling relationship. Accordingly, keep that in mind whenever you post something online. You don’t want to show yourself in a bad light, but you don’t want to appear synthetic or “unreal”, either. There is definitely a “knack” to this social media use.
- Distribute Different Content Through Different Profiles
Some content is more appropriate on Twitter than it is on Facebook. Some is more appropriate on LinkedIn or Instagram. It will depend on what your goals are, and what kind of engagement you’re going for. You can get more engagement through Instagram and Twitter than Facebook, but you can be more informative through Facebook.
- Be Swift To Respond To Anyone Interacting With You
When posts have more engagement, that puts them in a greater position of prominence. Algorithms will favor posts that are getting engagement as these posts keep people using associated search engines.
Most search engine revenue comes from capturing personal information for advertisers. Accordingly, a long conversation on a thread looks good to algorithms. When you respond quickly to “emoji” reacts, or to questions on a picture, video, or meme, that is more likely to stimulate conversation. You’ll want to lean into that and try to have a little fun.
Making Your Social Media Stand Out
Social media engagement is key to visibility, so always respond swiftly whenever someone interacts with one of your social media profiles for best results. Try and distribute content to a variety of different social media outlets so you can be the most visible, and calibrate content to the most appropriate audience. Also, be sure to keep potential relationships in mind.
Filling out all your profile information will also make it easier for you to “trend” on social media outlets, and don’t forget the memes. Everybody loves memes, and they tend to stimulate interaction. If you’re not doing these things, you might explore implementing such tips as a means of improving how effective your social media profiles are overall.
