Because of social media, our media consumption behaviour changes significantly, especially millennials, whose interest is hugely driven by amazing visual content. As copy writers (we somehow are all copywriters on social), we definitely want to avoid the TL;DR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) situation.
Copy now has become an enhancer – a critical element that helps enhance our visual story telling, i.e. visual content is king but copy provides the context, which however will be omitted if it cannot be consumed within secs. A poor lengthy copy makes people lose interest, causing us missing the chance to communicate the story and more importantly it diminishes the value of the visual content at the same time.
