Posting pictures of local athletes on your Facebook page? Good. Posting extensive galleries and inviting people to tag the photos? Even better.
WHAT THEY DID: The Nebraska City News-Press posed a couple dozen photos of a girls’ volleyball match, with some action shots as well as group photos. Then the News-Press asked fans to tag the photos. The post also included a link to the game story on the News-Press website.
THE TAKEAWAY: When someone tags a photo on Facebook, it creates a link to their timeline.
From Facebook: “When you tag someone, they'll be notified. Also, if you or a friend tags someone in your post and the post is set to Friends or more, the post could be visible to the audience you selected plus friends of the tagged person.”
Posting photos and asking readers to tag them will help spread your content to more people – which could result in more fans for your Facebook page and more pageviews for your website.
