Facebook reports there are approximately 90 million fake accounts - 10 times more than the population of the UAE. People create them for different reasons, most often - for sharing and liking the content they don’t want to show to their real friends.
Why can’t I like the same post several times?
Well, in fact you can - you can like your post, share it and like the shared post again, but it’s not smart at all. By the way - the button “like” should be the “Awesome” button in the beginning, but Zuckerberg vetoed the idea in 2007.
What’s the best time for posting on social media when you use your page for marketing?
According to the latest reports most of the social media networks report that their busiest time is between 1 and 4 PM on Wednesdays and Thursdays. But keep in mind - you’ll be competing with million other posts and only the best will survive. In our opinion the quality of your content is much more important thing than timing. Facebook or Instagram mechanism will automatically show your post to more people once it sees your content is interesting and people like and share it.
What should I put as a profile picture and a cover picture on my branded social media page?
For a profile picture the logo of your company will be the best solution. As for the cover - you can use your slogan on the branded background, photos of your products or an inspiring quote related to your business or which is inline with your marketing goals. Also you can update your cover once you’ve got a promo-campaign or sale.
Is it OK to post the same content on different social media?
Absolutely! Mostly your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram audience are different people. But if some of them will see your marketing content on different pages, it’s not bad if only the content isn’t bad itself.
