7 interesting things we DIDN’T know about our fav Social Apps.
Facebook is best used on a Friday!
Recent studies show that the best time to count on user engagement is on a Friday. That’s when your posts are more likely to receive more comments, shares and likes – why? Fridays are the gateway to the weekend, which means people spend less time working and more time scrolling.
There is an optimal time to tweet.
Twitter users – TrackMaven came up with precise timing for maximizing your chances of getting retweeted. The best time to tweet during the day is from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m North American time and is best done on Sunday. Apparently, late night is the ideal moment, given the volume of content is lower.
There are three words to avoid on LinkedIn.
Are you motivated? Creative? Passionate? Congratulations—so is virtually everyone else looking for work. These are the three of the most overused and ineffectual adjectives in LinkedIn profiles.
Written content is KEY on social media.
This one surprised us – given how much people love visual elements on social media. With businesses on the hunt for high-quality content to raise their brand awareness across various social media platforms – it seems that written content is what people appreciate most. A recent study showed that 58% of marketers considered blog posts and expert articles the most important social content.
There is an art to hashtagging.
Here’s what we found most people agree on works for each platform.
- Twitter – 1 to 3 hashtags work best.
- Facebook – hashtags may reduce engagement.
- YouTube – No more than 15.
- Instagram – 10 or more hashtags per post to get the most attention.
- TikTok – It’s relatively new, so there’s no consensus yet.
There is a Duet feature on TikTok.
The Duet feature on Tiktok allows you to reply to a video with a video itself to show your reactions, imitate dance moves, or add creative effects to interact with the original video. Duets is one if the main and favourite ways users engage in Tiktok challenges and the whole community.
You can mass unfollow inactive accounts on Instagram.
If you’re looking for a way to do a mass clean out – Instagram makes it easy for you to see the accounts you might not need or want to be following, whether they’re inactive or their content is no longer of interest to you. To do this – head to your profile, then click on the “Following” link. In the next screen, you’ll see a clickable list of accounts that you have “Least Interacted With.”
