Why Use Images?

May 17, 2013

I'll tell you why.

  1. People process visual information faster.
  2. Some concepts are better explained by an image than by text.
  3. Posts with images usually get more engagement.
  4. Images generally take up more space in the news feed.
  5. Images interrupt long passages of text in a good way.
  6. Pages on your website that don't have images cannot be pinned on Pinterest.
  7. Should your post be viewed in a context with others' posts, your post will stand out.
  8. Illustrated text is more memorable.
