Facebook

  • Engage readers with a question.
  • Consider tagging in partners (if allowable).
  • Use hashtags sparingly, if at all. They create more visual clutter and are not generally used on this platform.
  • Keep in mind the best times to post to Facebook.

Twitter

  • Keep messages brief. While there are 280 characters you can utilize, do not feel like you must do so. Effective tweets are often shorter.
  • A strong hook can grab attention right away, whether with words or graphics.
  • Use active language.
  • Keep in mind the best times to post to Twitter.
Example posts:
  • 1 in 3 American adults has #prediabetes. Are you one of them? Take the 1-minute risk test today. Diabetes.org/WIdhsRiskTest

Instagram

  • Best times to post to Instagram
  • Instagram does not allow for clickable links in posts like Twitter or Facebook do. Instead, consider using a link aggregator for the link on your main profile, such as LinkTree (free). These aggregators allow for an unlimited number of links to be listed in addition to being able to track click-throughs.
Example posts:
  • 1 in 3 American adults has #prediabetes. Are you one of them? Take the 1-minute risk test today. Diabetes.org/WIdhsRiskTest
  • Did you know that, if you've experienced trauma, you may be at higher risk of developing #Type2Diabetes? Learn what you can do today to lower your risk. PreventDiabetesWI.org #T2D #Prediabetes
