In recent years, there has been a major shift in social from text to media-based conversations. Studies have recently pointed out that tweets with images get 150% more retweets than those without and Facebook image posts see 2.3X more engagement than those without. It’s no wonder that marketers have cashed in on this for according to Social Media Examiner, 80% of marketers use visual assets in their social media marketing activities.

With images being the main conversation driver on social, there are quite a few questions that keep marketers up at night including the following:

  • What makes visual content memorable and shareable?
  • How can we quantify visual marketing campaigns?
  • Which images receive a positive response from followers? Why?

The data scientists at Unmetric have been hard at work, trying to answer these questions for you through Unmetric’s newest functionality.
