The report also showed that comments are becoming a larger portion of social engagement. Comments as a share of brand post engagement rose 16% year over year. Engagement with video posts is also on the rise, up 25% year over year. Actual video plays are up an astounding 785% year over year. Almost a quarter of all video plays on Facebook happen on Friday as well.
How can you drive interest in your posts? Posts with images continue to enjoy the highest engagement rate. Posts with links are also up, showing a 77% increase year over year. Text only posts continue to decline in both share and engagement.
