Facebook gallery album use cases
Results show that visual content is more than 40X more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content. Also, eye-tracking studies show Internet readers pay close attention to information-carrying images. In fact, when the images are relevant, readers spend more time looking at the images than they do reading text on the page.
Since I’m talking about the importance of visual content, I can’t finish this post without showing you how our plugin helped our users enhance their web content by embedding a Facebook feed widget.
Here’s how some of our users put the Facebook plugin to good use:
BarkPost shares Facebook albums in their blog posts
Our plugin helps them share the same photos on their blog posts and enhance them with great visual content in just seconds. No need to crop or upload photos.
GPX racing displays the Facebook gallery on the homepage
This is a very common example for companies’ websites to use a simple plugin that showcases the company’s products. In this case, the web developers do not need to update the album on the website once a new photo is uploaded to the Facebook page album.
The plugin automatically showcases the newly embedded Facebook photo album in the website gallery.
Why Embed Facebook Photo Albums on Your Website?
Visual content is very important today, especially Facebook albums.
Statistics show that when people hear information, they’re likely to remember only 10% of that information three days later. However, if a relevant image is paired with that same information, people retained 65% of the information three days later. Also, content with relevant images gets 94% more views than content without relevant images. (Source)
Embedding Facebook photo albums on your website can offer several benefits for both your website visitors and your online presence. Here are four to five key advantages and explanations:
Enhanced visual appeal
Facebook photo galleries are a visually engaging way to showcase images and memories. By embedding Facebook albums on your website, you can instantly enhance its visual appeal. High-quality images and albums can capture visitors’ attention, making your website more attractive and inviting.
Incorporating Facebook photo albums diversifies your website’s content. Instead of relying solely on written content, you can incorporate multimedia elements that cater to different types of audiences. This can help keep visitors engaged and interested in your website, reducing bounce rates.
Social proof and credibility
When you embed Facebook feed or photo albums, you demonstrate transparency and authenticity to your website visitors. When you embed Facebook albums on a website, they often feature user-generated content, such as customer reviews and real-life experiences. This social proof can enhance your credibility and trustworthiness, especially if the albums showcase positive interactions and feedback.
Increased social media engagement
Embedding Facebook photo albums can drive traffic to your social media profiles. When visitors interact with embedded albums, they may be more inclined to follow or share your social media content. This can expand your social media reach and help you grow your online community.
Time and resource efficiency
Maintaining a website can be time-consuming, and regularly updating content is essential. When you’ve embedded a photo album, you can leverage existing content from your social media platform. You can save time and resources that would otherwise be spent creating and managing additional content for your website.
