- Pinterest is a good source to find popular picture quotes. Find popular quotations, jokes, sayings and add them to your own background images. Look for those that have been repinned the most.
- Reproduce quotes you have seen on Facebook, judging popularity by how many shares they have had. You may not want to publish yours straight away, even if it is on your own image; your friends may have shared the quote already. To quote Marie Antoinette “There is nothing new except what has been forgotten.”
- Look on different social networks to where you are going to post yours. For example, if you are going to post on Facebook look on G+ or vice versa.
