Quotables - Inspiring Engagement by Moving from Text to Images

Images in online media matter!

Photos grab attention and communicate so much more than simple text.

As well, images are more "socially shareable".  Text can't be shared on Pinterest, but text in an image can be shared on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more!

Images also encourage more engagement that simple text.  On Facebook, for example, not only do photo posts get more engagement than links, videos or text-based updates, they actually account for 93% of the most engaging posts on Facebook.

Look at this example for instance.  Are you going to copy this text and share it?
