Are Simple Images The Best Social Media Content?

This article from Forbes talks about the fact that brands are using images more than words to promote their products on social media. For example, the campaigns by Bud Light Premium mostly feature just the picture of the product. I agree that people are more likely to interact with intriguing photos on Facebook rather than links/content. What are your thoughts?

    I think that during a time of a very cluttered media landscape, it is important to remain concise and simple. It makes sense that advertisements featuring simple images and ideas would be successful, not only because they will elicit a higher recall and comprehension, but because comprehension is instantaneous and subconscious for the reader. There is no translation or analysis required on the receiver’s behalf.

  2. I agree. With so much clutter online, people likely devote so little time to any one post that if it isn’t concise it will not succeed.
