Get MORE Facebook Shares by Using These Words in Your Posts

Get MORE Facebook Shares by Using These Words in Your Posts

Get_MORE_Facebook_Shares_by_Using_These_Words_in_Your_Posts-lsget more facebook sharesYou've heard the old saying:

Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but Words will never hurt me....

This might be true on the playground, but it's not true when it comes to Facebook posts... and tweets... and blog headlines.

The words you use (or choose not to use) are incredibly important -- especially if you want people to share your posts.

Luckily, our friends over at ShortStack & SociallyStacked have gathered some great info from varying sources to come up with the top words to encourage shares.

They even created an awesome infographic to display the data (shown below).

You'll Get MORE Facebook Shares if You Use These Critical Words

Let's break it down into 3 categories: Blog Posts, Twitter & Facebook

Blog Posts:

If you want people to share your blog posts, you should use the following words in your headlines:

  • Smart
  • Surprising
  • Science
  • Hacks
  • Hackable
  • Hackers
  • Huge
  • Big
  • History
  • Critical (notice how I used that word in the blog title!)

Twitter:

Retweets are the name of the game on Twitter. The only way I've seen quick growth of my followers is when others retweet my posts.

These words will get you more retweets:

  • Free
  • Top
  • Follow
  • Twitter
  • Media
  • Please Retweet (but don't beg)
  • Please
  • Retweet
  • Great
  • Post
  • Blog Post
  • Check It Out
  • Help
  • New Blog Post
  • Social Media
  • Social
  • How To
  • You
  • 10

Facebook:

Getting a post shared by your fans on Facebook is no easy task -- but if you use the right words & get shares, your page is sure to grow.

Try using these words in your next post:

  • Warns
  • Inspires
  • Unites
  • Amuses
  • Gives
  • Offers
  • Discount
  • Deals
  • Amazes
  • Advises

I can't guarantee using these words will get you see tons of shares on every post -- but using them certainly can't hurt!
