Are Fewer Readers Seeing Your Facebook Posts This Week?

In Fan-centric Marketing, Media, Social Media by lisavgray

Last week, Facebook Product Manager Chris Turitzin announced that Facebook has tweaked its News Feed so that text-only posts from brand Pages will be seen by fewer viewers. The social media giant says we interact more when businesses post status updates that include images and links to “quality media.” So if you are an admin for your company’s Facebook page, plan your content strategy accordingly.

TIP: Post stories to your website (with image please!) – and then link to the story on Facebook. Like this:Modern Family's Facebook Post

 

 

 

 

 

 

TIP: Share third-party content (articles, not memes!) by link-sharing — NOT by embedding the link in your status update. This too encourages engagement, according to Facebook’s data. Like this:Spoleto Festival USA's Facebook Post

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And remember, your results may vary so test your engagement results against Facebook’s data. Mind your Insights, understand what your fans like and share. Let your fans be your guide (and keep an eye on the ever-refining News Feed algorithms!)
