How Should I Get Likes on Facebook Statuses
You have been discussing that is not practical at all. Show me something that I can do now and get the results. This must be the question you are asking for. Here is some practical work for you to do and get some Facebook likes on your status and links.
Do what the following points are saying and do the exact and see if it works or not. Hope you will not mind one status update to test, and you will see it really works.
Navigate to your Facebook Feed after logging into your account and click on “Add Photo/Video” tab and choose the most attractive and relevant photo related to the Status you are going to Update. We recommend to not to get Images from Google Search, instead you can get such Images from Stock Photo sites or you can make your own screenshots.
Try updating the same status and see how the user Interaction level with this update of yours. You can attach some funny picture with this update. You will surely get many likes in this update if you have a good base of Friends on your Facebook Profile. If you are having problem finding a funny photo, we have already picked up the best one.
For Getting Likes on Links, you should never share your blog posts via Like button, atleast not the blog owners. The trick also will help you getting some straight traffic to your blog. Add a photo which is related to your post link and it should be eye-catchy. Just write some convincing status with the photo and don’t forget to attach a shortened link to your blog post. This works as I am doing it from quite good past.
So, check your status now, you must have got likes. If not, then you must be having a short list of friends which are not that active. But even if you don’t have much friends, you have an alternative. You can try updating the status on Groups and Pages having good number of Members.
You can see in the above Screenshot, I have updated the same status that I want you to share , and in just 22 minutes, I have managed to get 45+ Facebook Likes.
