4. Tweak headlines and descriptions of links posted to Facebook and make them more relevant and interesting to your audience!

5. Have a specific call-to-action within the first 90 characters of your post and tell your audience what you want them to do. “… if you agree like, if you disagree comment” “like if you want to …” “caption this!”

6. Do not automate your social media posts, schedule them instead and avoid being penalized!
