What's Trending?! Live Audio, Picture Polls and More!
Four new Facebook updates that you want to get on top of!
It is no secret that Facebook rolls out new features all the time! Spring of 2018 is no different, and there are some great new features for you to take advantage of to reach a larger audience.
It is SO important to stay on top of the new trends and features on Facebook because guess what the algorithm likes? The new stuff! Facebook wants their new features to succeed, so of course they will push them to the top of newsfeeds! Here are a few to look out for this Spring!
1. Polls with Pictures - the poll option is a great way to get feedback from your audience, and it also is a great way to gage what their interests are. If you feel like you are not getting any interaction on your posts, make sure you are asking your audience what they want to hear about! The poll feature now allows you to not only add text, but add pictures as an option. Visuals draw attention and polls draw in engagement! It is a win win all around! You are also able to pick how long you would like to keep the poll running for.
2. Ask Questions Feature - there is a new "Did You Know" section of Facebook where you are asked a series of random questions which can be filled out for people to get to know you better. There are fun questions such as "If I could visit another planet, it would be..." to more personal questions "I met my significant other at..."
3. Lists - just like answering questions about yourself - lists give you fun engaging questions to answer about yourself in a bulleted or numbered format with a cute colorful background!
4. Live Audio - last and certainly not least is the live audio feature on Facebook! Much like live video, followers can interact and engage with you while on live. The only difference is you don't have to actually put the time effort and energy into hair and makeup! So for the days you want to stay in your PJ's Facebook audio is a total win! It is just like having a podcast going. Followers are able to listen as they scroll their newsfeeds. PRO TIP - you are able to download your audio and upload it into a podcast if you would like! Such a great way to repurpose content!
Have you noticed any of these new features yet? Are you going to try them out? Are you more comfortable on audio than video?
