The Correlation Between Newsworthy Matters and Facebook Sharing
June 29, 2017 8:19pm CST
This is the highlight of my day. My life doesn't have much excitement to report on. So you know how on Facebook, you have to remember to adjust your news feed to “Mosr Recent” otherwise you'll keep seeing the same posts over and over and over. Well today I made the adjustment and … it really wasn't that much difference. In the Top News feed people were yelling and screaming about Donald Trump and U.S. Politics and in the “Most Recent” feed, it was different people but they were doing the same thing. But this particular person in my network had 3 shares in a row. ~ The first was about Donald Trump and something that provoked her “ire”. ~ The second was about a mommie elephant rescuing a baby elephant that had accidentally fallen into a deep pool of water. ~ The third post was about some US Congressman … doin' sumthin' to piss people off. I honed in on the baby elephant rescue. It was newsworthy! Poor mommie elephant panics because the baby falls in and all she can see is the top of the head breaking the water's surface. The poor little thing is flinging his trunk trying to survive. Another elephant on the other side of the pool of water sees the mother in distress and comes to her aid. The two of them jump into the water and push the baby elephant to the shallow part of the pool, which had a ramp. They gently slide the baby up the ramp and back onto the land. The baby elephant is saved!! The animal rescue stories always get me!! I was impressed. I had to share that on my Facebook timeline. But what about the other two posts? Whatever! They'll still be barking about politics tomorrow. Baby elephants don't get rescued every day!
