Social cards can be shared on any of the major social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter and can instantly boost traffic to your website and increase engagement rates.

Unlike regular images that expand when clicked on, social cards send users directly to the landing page of your choice. You can use them to promote products and services, make your blog posts more visible, and market your app and software downloads.

According to one Facebook study report, Tumblr increased referral traffic from Facebook by over 250% after implementing social cards, while a Twitter case study showed that British mobile company Three increased their engagement rates by 26% and URL clicks by 64% with the help of clickable social cards.

As useful as they are, social cards are also somewhat challenging and time-consuming to make, especially for inexperienced website owners. Luckily, with the help of AnyImage, a free online tool, you can create an unlimited number of social cards, linking to any web page of your choice.
