Which Words Drive the Most Engagement on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn & Blogs?

Here’s the million dollar social media question: how do you get more retweets, Likes and shares on Twitter, Facebook and Google+?

Answer: by using the right words.

What you say in your copy and headlines on social media posts can have a dramatic impact on how readily that content is consumed and shared by your fans and followers. In fact, it can be more important than the content itself.

For example, simply using the phrase “please retweet” on Twitter will significantly increase your retweets.

The words and terms of choice vary from social network to social network, but thankfully help is at hand courtesy of this visual from Neoteric UK, which presents the ultimate social media cheat sheet on word science.
