Let’s Get Visual! Let Your Social Media Graphics Talk


Let’s tell the story of social media visuals, with social media visuals. 🙂

There has been some debate about the origins and the number of 60,000X, but I included it here and made the caveat not because of the number itself, because of the vast amounts of science that indicates the principal of the number.

Describe a circle in a sentence. Then show them a circle. How much faster did the concept resonate? It’s an important principal as we move forward.

Think of how fast the world we live in moves, especially on social media. One minute we’re all worried if Kim Kardashian’s butt will break the Internet, and the next we’re wondering what selfie we’ll post after lunch. The human attention span is getting shorter and shorter, thanks to technology and social media. Down from 12 seconds in 2000 to 8 seconds in 2013 (so says the National Center for Biotechnology Information.)

So now think of how fast we thumb through our Twitter feed, or our Facebook timeline when we’re on mobile. And when we’re on mobile, we’re usually only using half of that 8 second attention . . . . wait, squirrel! (You get the point.) We’re walking. We’re shopping. Hopefully we’re not driving. So how do you, as a brand, as a small business, as an influencer, stand out in a sea of Tweets and posts? With visuals.
