Most Popular Pictures of 2017 on What The Saints Did Next Facebook Page

LIKES, CLICKS & REACH – IT’S A SOCIAL THING | Darrin Henry

First-line blood relatives they might be, but our photo-blog and What The Saints Did Next Facebook Page, have very different personalities.

The blog is the grown up sibling; thoughtful, takes pride in its appearance and thinks before it speaks (mostly). It has responsibilities; a long-term role to play.

The Facebook Page on the other hand lives in the moment, still with a crucial role as well but definitely more of a Harry than a William. Much more random, less formal; prone to a wild weekend in Vegas at the drop of a hat – so to speak!

Still, they both play an important role in our WTSDN venture and although there is plenty of cross-over we do notice specific fans of just one or the other forum.

The Things Our Page Gets Up To

Although our Facebook Page is very much the ‘best supporting actor,’ set up simply to promote and raise awareness of the blog, that hasn’t stopped it from carving out a little niche for itself.

Each October on Page’s launch anniversary (8 October 2014) we’ve held a Facebook photography competition. Three competitions have successfully been completed now.

We introduced a Facebook Page Saturday Share which took place throughout 2017, where every weekend we helped promote other Pages, mostly from St Helena but also other Pages we connect with. We managed Saturday Shares on 50 of 52 weeks (two weeks lost owing to travel and poor internet access).

Best Picture Performers Of 2017

One of the most fascinating things about our Facebook Page is the different levels of response to the pictures. We are always left to marvel at photos we might personally think are quite ordinary yet completely captures the interest of our followers.

As the year draws to a close we’ve decided to look back at the most popular images.

Here then are the top 10 pictures from 2017 on What The Saints Did Next’s Facebook Page, as decided by their reach and engagement stats. We’ve included the original captions as posted.

You can’t get these RMS St Helena travel document holders anymore, (not from Solomon’s anyway) so ours is now a cherished keepsake that we still carry with us no matter where we travel.

    Enjoyed top 10 with morning coffee, lovely pictures. Love No.5 very smart but the phrase Air bus has landed rolls the dice. Well done WTSDN wishing you the best for 2018.
