Recent research from HubSpot has indicated that Facebook photos generate higher engagement than the average post, and new data provided to MarketingCharts by Socialbakers supports this finding. Socialbakers took a sample of approximately 90,000 posts from 24,000 brand pages around the world during the week of November 26-December 2, and analyzed the top 10% most engaging posts. Of those, 89% were photos, with the remainder being links (4%), videos (4%), and status updates (3%).
Some of that dominance in engagement on the part of Facebook photos is due to their volume. Among that initial sample of 90,000 posts, for example, 77% were photos, with the remainder split among links (9%), status updates (7%), video (6%), and others (1%). Read the rest at MarketingCharts.
