On Facebook, reviews can be something more than just written text or testimonials. Businesses can incorporate videos and images in their reviews. In this digital time, when social media is full of visual content. That has made the attention of the consumers fleet; hence they avoid reading written content and prefer pictures and videos as a source of information.
In these circumstances, the power of visual elements in the reviews can never be understated when it comes to casting the first impression on the potential customers. So, using images in Facebook reviews can turn your written text-based feedback into immersive and engaging content.
But Facebook has transitioned from “reviews” to “recommendations,” which allow users to add photos and tags to their recommendations. When recommending a business, users can now include photos to accompany their text and select tags to highlight key features of a business.
Here are some tips on how to effectively use images and videos in your Facebook reviews:
