Best Tips to Get More Comments & Shares in your Facebook Posts
The right time to post
Well, as we know that everything should be done at its right time, so is in the case of Facebook posts. You should choose the right time to post. Right time means the time when most of the users of Facebook come online. Studies have shown that maximum Facebook users come online in the evening. People spend more time on Facebook between 7 pm-11 pm. Hence you should always try to post in this time interval.
Weekends also have great impact on Facebook. The posts which get posted on weekends, especially on Sundays get more likes and share says the research. So make sure that you post on Facebook in between this magical time interval.
Include attractive photos
No doubt that visuals get more attention than a simple text. People love to see content in the form of photos or videos rather than in plain text. Well, there is also a reason behind that, it is because visuals are easy to consume and fun to like and share.
Your photo should be an eye-caching one. It should make people go away, laugh or cry. You should always try to post different and unique photos to gain the visitors’ attention. For example, if you post a photo in which a cute puppy is sleeping with teddy is itself different from the photos which includes just a puppy.
It is always a better choice to explain a concept with the help of an image or meme as it makes that concept more interesting and easy to understand. So, you can make use of it in the post related to your page.
You can also bring more life to your image post by adding memes, text, videos etc. Also, remember not to over use images. Use variations.
People find it very fascinating to answer interesting questions. It is often seen that posts with interesting questions get more comments and share. You can put some question in the form of an image or just relevant text to make people answer and put their opinionS which will eventually increase the comments and the shares on your post
You can ask just short and funny questions or fill in the blanks, trivia and many more. Before posting questions just keep in mind that question should be short, can be answered in one or two words, yes/no type question or MCQs.
You can see in the above examples how a simple short question gained a lot of share, likes and comments.
The length of your post
This is an important factor which affects the number of likes and shares you get for your Facebook post. You should always choose the right length for your post. The studies have shown that a small post with characters around 80-100 gain more likes and the post which contains 300-450 characters gains more shares. So it depends on the length of your post.
If you have to post a long post then always remember to make the narrative short and remove the link. Short narrative always gain people’s attraction than the long narratives.

There is always something happening whether it is related to entertainment or country, politics or anything else. You can make a big out of these currents affairs or news. Just relate the news with your page topic and ask people about their opinion.
The post about events like Oscar, Cannes, Olympic etc. were trending more and Facebook pages were also making use of the same. I saw many posts related to these events and people were enjoying sharing their thoughts or opinion regarding that particular thing.
Include Inspirational quotes
Posting an inspirational post is enough to gain the attention of visitors. People find it amazing to read new and inspirational quotes. Starting a day with a good and motivating quote is a great start.
So, you can post some good saying or quotes just to gain more likes and shares. You can also discuss the quotes in the post updates so that will engage them in sharing their opinions and the comment count of the post will increase automatically.
You can also run contests to gain more visitors and shares. People love contests as they can win rewards for the same. I personally like contests very much and have won one or two also. You can put small rewards such as t-shirt, coffee mug set, photo frame or anything which people like.
Also, Facebook has removed many laws and rules for running contests over Facebook. Now you will not have to use any third party app for contests, you can just post a status for the same.
Advertise your post
If you want to gain more and more likes, shares and comments over your post than you can also advertise it. Facebook has provided this service too. There are different charges according to the number of days, geolocation, call to action as you want to advertise your post. In order to magnify your exposure on Facebook you can promote your post for minimum cost $5.
Make it your habit to post regularly, so that your fans can see your post on regular basis. You can post every day or every alternative day. It is seen that posting 1-4 times a week get 4 times more likes and share than posting 5 times a week.
Also, leave 3-4 hours interval b/w post. It takes -4 hours for a post to get 70% of its total impression. So, give 4 hrs interval so that your post get its maximum impression.
