Images Are Key in social media?

Images Are Key

Another thing to consider is that the most commonly-shared content on social media is an image, so it’s a good idea to include an image with your posts.1 This will dramatically increase your chances that one of your followers will share the post with their network. While building up a large network of followers is great, a better measure of social media success is how often your followers share your content—no matter how many followers you have. This is the new form of “word of mouth.”
