What’s a Facebook story?
What can you add to a Facebook story?
When should you use a Facebook story
|Use announcements for things like events or breaking news and product launches. Think of the fanfare about albums dropping and aim for that tone.
|Teasers of some longer content
|Made an amazing video series? Find a good 20-second clip from you work or make a 20-second trailer, and have followers visit your page or website for the real deal.
|Demonstrations of your art
|Who hasn’t gotten mesmerized by a paint-swirl or calligraphy video on social media? Or been amazed at a few rapid kickflips on a skateboard? Whatever art means to you, a story is a great medium for a bite-sized snippet.
|Very short how-to videos
|Can you show your product in action in twenty seconds or less? Did you just discover a funky new way to peel an apple? It’s story time!
|Short, funny moments
|Do you tell the best (or worst) knock-knock jokes? Are you about to drop a water balloon on your best friend? Just like IRL, a quick bit of comedy or a prank edited for a quick setup and punch line can be an amusing story.
