What is a Carousel Post?

A Carousel Post is a slideshow of photos or videos that people can swipe through horizontally (usually left) on various platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc.

In a short period of time, Carousel Posts quickly became the most widely used feature among social media creators.

Why should you use Carousel Post?

Carousel Posts are great for increasing engagement. People love to interact with a Carousel Post: this format capitalises on people’s attention span and nurtures reflexes for swiping through each card’s contents. The time they spend engaging with the Carousel post is, in fact, longer than other posts. So, they are also the perfect format for Ads and sponsored posts.

They are great for sharing insights and stories in an easy-to-digest way because they get to the point quickly. Carousel Posts are the perfect format for repurposed content.
