Holiday photos

There’s no better way to make people jealous (in a nice way) than to show them the gorgeous locales you’ve been visiting. If you’ve been sunning yourself in Tunisia, sharing shots of you and yours soaking up rays is a great way to document your journey.

Conversely, if you’ve been losing yourself in the myriad network of streets and alleyways that make up a city like New York, you almost owe it to yourself to show your family and friends your discoveries.

Some might say that you’re instilling FOMO in your nearest and dearest by showing them the great times you’ve had, but those people are just jealous of fun and success. There are certainly right and wrong ways to do this, so make sure you’re presenting a real experience for your feed rather than just showing off.

Your horoscope

Okay, sure, horoscopes can’t predict the future…can they? Well, the jury might still be out on that one, but there’s no reason you can’t share yours either for fun or for motivation.

Find yourself an excellent horoscope website like Ask Astrology to ensure you’re getting the highest-quality horoscope you possibly can.

Once you’ve figured out what your sign is (if you don’t already know), have a read of your horoscope and post it on your feed for like-minded individuals to mull over. Who knows? You might find your next job, your next relationship, or your next financial windfall thanks to a horoscope.

Memes

Hey, everyone loves a meme lord, right? Show your feed your sense of humour by finding some of the dankest memes and sharing them. Make sure your meme game is on point, though, because the savvier of your friends will spot if you’re just copying other people’s content.

The considerate meme lord creates memes of their own, so if you’ve got a funny idea for a text image or you’ve got a pithy observation to make, presenting it as a meme is a great way to get people to notice it.

If this whole meme revolution has passed you by, make sure you know what a meme actually is before you start posting, or you’re going to look squarer than SpongeBob.

Political pieces

There’s a lot of controversy around whether politics belong on social media or not right now. In our opinion, politics is central to human existence, so sharing political pieces is pretty much par for the course when it comes to social media.

This is an absolute minefield, and you need to make sure you’re doing it right, because there are a lot of potential downsides here. DO NOT post anything inflammatory – that’s racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise prejudiced material – because that’s a) a surefire way to get banned and b) just not very considerate.

Carefully vet your content and make sure it’s true and accurate. Doing so will ensure you are stimulating honest, critical and careful debate, which is what politics on social media should look like.

When it’s done right, this can really elevate a comments section. Done wrong, it could be the end of your Facebook existence, so be careful.

Pet pictures

Awww. Everyone loves a cat, right? Well, no. Some people love dogs. Even so, cat pictures are definitely good content for Facebook users.

In 2015, CNN estimated that there were around 6.5 billion cat pictures floating around on the Internet, and that number is only likely to have increased in recent years.

You might think that makes your adorable moggy just more fodder for the social media mill, but you’d be wrong. The unique thing about Facebook is that it’s simultaneously intimate and far-reaching; your cat picture could go viral, or it could simply stay with your friends and family.

Either way, aren’t you depriving the world of your cat (or dog, or ferret, or Komodo dragon) by not taking a picture of them? That’s callous. Upload your cat pictures now!

Your own content

If you’re a creator, Facebook is your place to shine. Whether you’re a blogger, an artist, or a musician, sharing links to your content is sure to drive up your fanbase. Facebook doesn’t make for the best hosting site, but it’s a good catch-all hub for all kinds of content.

Whether you’re sharing from Soundcloud or WordPress, make sure you’re giving your content a fair showing on Facebook. There might be plenty of your friends and family who don’t even know you’re a creator. Let them see what you’re spending your free time working on.

Your achievements

Passed your driving test? Graduated from university? Opened your first business? Let your nearest and dearest know on Facebook. Again, there’s definitely a right and wrong way to go about this.

If you’re simply boasting to your friend’s list then you’re going to come across as conceited and annoying. Instead, you should approach talking about your achievements fairly delicately. Let people know how hard you worked for your achievement and make sure people know it’s not just you that contributed to making it happen.

Most importantly, don’t be ashamed; people don’t like humblebrags and they don’t like it when you play down your achievements even though you were the one who decided to create the post. That said, if you’ve achieved something personally or culturally impressive, your friends and family should know about it.

Your friends’ achievements

Similarly, bigging up your friends and helping them to feel appreciated is definitely a good thing to do on social media. There’s definitely an argument to be made that we’re becoming more self-centred.

Using social media to draw attention to someone else’s excellent achievement will show people not only that you’re willing to be there for them, but that you genuinely care about their lives and are engaged in their struggles.

Whether your friend has made a meal they would usually screw up or landed an incredible new job, their accomplishments deserve to be talked about. Just make sure they’ll actually appreciate it; some people are introverts and don’t want their lives plastered all over social media. (We certainly wouldn’t mind if ours were, though.)

Personal experiences

Your personal experiences could help others to deal with stuff in their own life. Obviously, if you’re sitting on something deep down, sharing it on Facebook might not be the best way to get it out there.

If you want to remember an experience, though, be it positive or negative, you should share it on Facebook. Research suggests that posting experiences on social media helps us to remember them.

If something happened to you in your life that you either want to happen to others or don’t want to happen to them, posting it on social media is a good way to describe your experience and ensure it has the desired effect on others. Also, you might just have something funny to say, and nothing brightens others’ days like a pithy comedy one-liner.

Your food

Hear us out. We know people sharing pictures of sloppily-constructed food on social media is kind of a social faux pas, but there are some who genuinely do like and want to see this type of content.

If you’re proud of a cake you’ve made or a meal you’ve cooked from scratch, why wouldn’t people want to see it? Similarly, if you’re a decorating master or you know how to arrange the food so it looks mouth-watering, you could be counting a talent scout among your friends and not even know it.

Posting pics of your food on Facebook doesn’t really have any negative consequences and could boost your self-esteem, not to mention giving others the inspiration they need to start cooking for themselves.
