Few things in life are certain but the question of how to share a link on Facebook has only one answer. At least, that’s what I always thought. My view has become more nuanced over the past few months and I’m devoting this month’s article to the myth of the link-in-caption and its impact on reach.
If you’re wondering how many hashtags to use for Twitter, then there is the golden rule: keep ’em few and people stick with you. Take ’em high and wave bye-bye.
Every day, social media managers are tasked with more labors than Heracles while also toiling with that multi-headed beast known as The Algorithm. First order of business – doing away with the common social media myths.
Welcome to another social media case study. It was a quiet month with a few days of cyclonic activity when we all decamped for Belgrade and the 2018 edition of WordCamp Europe (aka the Russian sleep experiment).
Welcome to another social media case study. This month we found that quitting Facebook seems to be what the kids are into these days. Just 10% of teens claim it as a go to platform (but they love Instagram, so not all bad for Marvellous Mark and the FB bunch).
The News Feed is still giving me headaches and this month I played with more videos to see if we could get some love. I also tried to take our content out of the feed and played with some groups to see how they worked. I made errors on Instagram and started setup on Pinterest. We’ll also briefly cover a few miscellaneous things that have gone on this month, like spring cleaning on LinkedIn and a couple of new YouTube channels.
It’s already the fifth edition of my social media case study, hard to believe. Because every month is scarier than the last when you work in social media. Still, at least we don’t work for Facebook, am I right?
This past month has been exciting for our social media case study, as we have managed to shake some trolls lose. When we weren’t battling them we managed to find some time to promote a new child theme on Facebook, branch out into new social media channels, mess with Twitter Promote Mode; and have some fun with some new friends.
The third edition of the social media case study has arrived! Full disclosure: fewer experiments this past month as I spent time watching the impact of the Facebook News Feed changes. So what did I do? Played more with my writing style on social media posts. I wanted to get a better handle on writing for our international audience. I also felt that I was missing the point sometimes and trying to be too clever. Really it was about getting back to basics.
So, here we are with the second edition of my social media case study / experiments and adventures here at Revive.Social. The end of 2017 was quite interesting here at Revive.Social, and we experimented a lot with our images and content. Mostly I am interested in post types and the level of engagement we are getting with them.

Just recently movies have switched from 3D to 4DX. Perhaps it’s time for images to evolve too, especially on social media. I mean, there are already video cover pictures on Facebook, have you noticed? So how long until 3D makes an impact? Why you should care about 3D images Because images help your content get shared.
