Gotta love the info-graphics, particularly for Facebook pages etc, I personally think they are one of the most overlooked and under utilised tool which can be as simple or artistic as you like. Often, when doing them myself, I will use even paint or publisher to do these, or draw them by hand and take a photo to upload. The point is, you need no special tools or skills and they can be used for anything really...
Some of my favourites around social media can be found below (which are all available on our AssistNZ Facebook page
Using reporting diagrams and extra detail...
and for good measure a slightly more basic one of ours....
A more detailed detail kind of info-graphic..
or with a few paragraphs of information even....
and why not screen shot any promotional material for your Facebook pages, this example is very wordy for these purposes but it is aimed at our consultants whom we think might need abit more information than normal, but its all in context... I think that could really be one of the keys when I think about it.. .
it is really simple to use the badges or widgets which certain networking sites like Twitter, or other free services available online, such as eventbrite.com, provide can easily be captured as an image and uploaded as an image on your personal or business page on Facebook for example... a picture is easy to view and lets face it, if we don't have to read anything to get the point, depending on your medium, sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words..
