How to make a photo popular on Facebook

- +

A study undertaken by researchers at the University of California at Berkeley and Nikon seems to have found the magic formula to make photographs posted on Facebook more attractive. Researchers found that a lot of people will probably like a funny photograph of an animal set against a beautiful landscape. 

The study showed that the most popular images generally include a landscape or an animal, something that commands inspiration (such as a setting sun) and something that adds humor or simply triggers an emotion. The photograph must also have the right type of lighting and not be blurred.

"Emotion and quality are what really count, according to our study," says Dr. Paul Piff, who led the research team. All these elements make photographs attractive and gain them 'likes.'
