Social media is WEIRD, fam...

Hey, fam!

In September I ran ads most of the month, and posting on social media to get data to make some business decisions I won't bore you with.

But I do wanna talk about people's behavior on the internet, especially on social media.

It's weird.

I was gonna rant about the goofy ways people act on the internet.

But I won't.  I will give you one example of a thing people do that I think is weird.

So I have been running ads on my Facebook pages and noticed that if I share a link, more people click the reactions (like, love, wow, etc) than actually click through to go to the website.  Even if it's for art that they can only partially see.

Are they not curious to see the art?  And if not, why click "like"?

I find that very frustrating when I am trying to use social to sell stuff, and I bet you do too.

I could rant about this for a 1000 more words, but the reality is it's not the people on Facebook's job to create content that makes them want to click those links.

It's mine.

Rant cancelled.

Back to the drawing board.
