I rarely pay much attention to FaceBook. I still do not understand how it is organized. I do know that many people like and use it, and I too use it to expand the audience for my blog. But I did not know how effective it is until today.
Over the past 18 months I have posted several hundred photos: some on their own; many associated with articles. Some of my photos are good—even having won recognitions in juried competitions.
I recently posted an image that was sent to me as part of an award. One condition of accepting the award was to include the graphic—a colorful image of a dragon and a maiden, apparently having some kind of heartfelt conversation.
Here is what I learned.
That image, which is not even mine, has garnered more “Likes” on FaceBook (i.e., “so-and-so liked your photo” in reference to the Dragon Loyalty Award) on my blog site than any single photograph of mine that I have posted. So what did I learn?
I have to find a dragon and a damsel to sit for a photograph!
(Yes, I know FB does not offer a “Like” for “Picture” or “graphic,” but as as they like to say these days, “Just sayin’!”
What I like:
This is “tongue-in-cheek” folks, so don’t get you “knickers in a twist!” (But it is true!)
