Facebook has released its latest guide to best practices for driving discussion around your videos.
Keep on it
Posting a video and seeking sweet Likes is a matter of engaging, and Facebook has four key points to follow.
- Engage with your audience in the comments: Facebook personalities, celebrities, and journalists like Bob Herzog have built foundations of followers from conversing with their online audience.
- Build a culture that encourages and rewards discussion: sites like the Dodo, that publish news and “emotionally resonant stories of animals” fosters a community and builds on common interest (in this case…animals)
- Help people discover new things within their own community: content creators like AJ+ provide stories inspired by travelers and destinations that in turn bring in a likeminded audience.
- Finally, find a unique angle on a national story: News agencies like CNN will often hone in on a specific aspect of a story, like the case of Donna Ross, a school teacher in Oklahoma, working multiple jobs and dealing with a strike, rather than focusing on the strike itself.
In other words: keep new content coming, keep the people commenting, and repeat.
