This long time expected Friends+Me feature is finally here to help you increase clicks, favorites and retweets of your Twitter posts originated from Google+.
Any image Friends+Me finds in your Google+ post will be reposted to Twitter as an embedded image.
What is it all about? Twitter recently announced a new feature where images can be viewed in the stream without clicking to view and this can get you a significant increase in engagement.
Buffer did some research regarding the impact of this new Twitter feature and results look very promising:
- Tweets with images received 89% more favourites
- Tweets with images received 18% more clicks than those without
- Tweets with images received 150% more retweets
Here are some screenshots where you can see how an embedded Twitter image actually looks like.
It looks great, doesn’t it? And believe me, your Twitter followers are gonna love it!
Thanks go to Ben Johnston for helping during tests and for pushing us to implement this feature :)
