For headlines, make sure they are bold and easy to read. For body copy, maximize legibility by using the correct amount of leading and tracking. Lunes should be large enough to read - the shorter the lines, the better.

5. Be creative

Perhaps you've wondered what that meant in actual fact, or you know what it means but you're so firmly "inside the box" that you don't even notice that you're in the box. Social media is a hub of design inspiration. Be creative and think outside the box.
