Facebook is testing out a new paid service that allows you the user to pay to promote your posts.
What this means is not everyone is going to see your post unless you fork out some $$$. Smart for facebook, but as a user – this is rather annoying….ok, REALLY ANNOYING! Only a small percentage of my FB Followers are actually going to see what I post unless I decide to pay money to promote it. Or unless they decide to visit my Facebook page directly.
There aren’t a lot of ways to get around it. However, I did come across this idea that will help your posts show up more often in the feed of other people that follow your page.
This is what I posted on my Facebook Wall. If you don’t want to miss out on our posts, make sure to do the following.
Are we not showing up in your news feed anymore? FB has begun to ask pages to pay to promote their page’s posts, if we don’t pay then only 10% of you get our updates!
Here’s how to keep in touch:
1) Go to our page, @Safe.Email.Kids.KidsEmail.org
2) Hover mouse over “Liked”
3) Click “Add to Interests Lists”
4) Click ‘+New List’
5) Click ‘Next’
6) Create list named ‘Safe.Email.Kids.KidsEmail.org
7) Click ‘Done’
Regularly commenting and liking our posts also helps! We promise to keep things new and fun; we just want to make sure you have an opportunity to participate!
Feel free to post this on your page as well (just make sure to change your company information)
I hope this helps! If you have any other insight or knowledge on how to get around this, your comments are appreciated!
