We all know images are king of engagement when it comes to social media. There’s a lot of noise, and pictures seem to break through the chatter and demand attention. What kind of images are the MOST engaging, though?
Here’s a look at the top five most engaging visuals on social media:
Visual Bullets: These are a collection of images that include a headline, at least two pictures and captions.
Storyboards: Similar to visual bullets, but instead of being independent of one another, the bullets are interconnected captions that create step-by-step instructions or a sequential story that explains something.
Illustrated Words: Using a graphic to visualize the meaning of a word or statement, especially by using humor, makes the word more interesting and creates a “wow” moment for viewers when they make the connection.
Diagrams: Use a single image, and pull it apart to provide interesting information.
Memes: People love to share images with witty quotes, and with a little help from MemeGenerator (or another one of the many meme creators), you’ll get a high return for the short amount of time you spend creating it.
