Top 10 topics for Facebook success in one post – can you do better?

food - one of the top 10 Facebook topics

I was fascinated, earlier today, to come across a list of the top 10 topics on Facebook likely to engage readers. Being a foodie, I was rather surprised to note that “food” came in at 10th place – in fact, to be honest I was even rather disappointed, because in my rare leisure hours I also happen to write a food and lifestyle blog!

Another poor performer in the top 10 was “business”, which was malingering at no.9. You’d have thought, given the importance of business (one way or another) to our lives, that this topic might have come in a little higher. What can we take from this? Probably that people don’t always want to read about your business on Facebook – unless you’re offering them a rather attractive deal (and even doing that too often can turn people off!). So what DO people want to read about on Facebook?

Well, here are the topics that ranked above comestibles and commerce in the eyes of the global Facebook fraternity:

1. Music

2. Television

3. Holidays

4. Software

5. Religion

6. Celebrities

7. Film

8. Books

[9. Business

10. Food]

This set me thinking about the perfect Facebook post – surely one that includes the top ten topics. Unfortunately, this wasn’t going to be an easy task for someone who rarely watches TV or films and thus has a rather unimpressive knowledge of celebrities. However, I do enjoy a challenge, so here’s the best I could come up with… Could this be the ultimate Facebook post?

“There I was, alternately listening to Céline Dion and watching Poirot on the first night of my annual summer jaunt to San Tropez when suddenly the software on my high-tech media system failed catastrophically. ‘Oh God!’ I shrieked. ‘Now I won’t be able to watch Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge tonight. I guess I’ll just have to resort to reading Duncan Bannatyne’s ‘How to be Smart with your Money’ while munching a bag of Minstrels instead.'”

Now I’m fairly sure you  could do better than this. So sure, in fact, that I’ll post a little packet of Galaxy Minstrels to the writer of what I deem to be the best effort (max. 75 words)  – at a UK address of his or her choice. Just post your offering on the EurowordUK Facebook page and like the page by 5pm on Friday 11th July, and over the weekend I’ll pick the post that this particular reader finds most engaging.

PS: Remember that your post needs to feature all 10 topics (or allude to each of them in some way) and  in the correct order. Over to  you…
