Our Most Popular Facebook Posts of 2017

At the start of every year, we like to look back at our social media posts from last 12 months to see what worked, what didn’t work, and what lessons we can learn from them.

We’re particularly proud of our Facebook following, which grew from 2,784 to 7,362 throughout the year!

As we started to reflect on our best social media moments of 2017, we thought it would be interesting and fun to share some of them with you, especially since many of you may have liked, commented, or shared some of these posts, contributing to our social media success.

Top Facebook posts of 2017

We decided to order our posts by engagement, (likes, comments, shares), rather than by their reach. This is mainly because we can learn more from what our friends like and dislike, rather than how many people have viewed the post itself.
