How much do you ‘LIKE’ your Facebook posts

Up till I found this article, I thought liking your own Facebook posts was a bit kind of self conscious and a vanity thing. Oh how WRONG. Facebook has being doing bad things under the covers to try and take your posts out of your contact’s news feeds. Apparently liking your own post fixes that.
I found this great article by Rick Rouse and I think all internet marketers should read it.
This is what he has to say about Facebook ‘dirty tricks’

“Facebook has made numerous changes to their user interface of late, and one of the most reviled changes of them all were changes to the news feed and the introduction of the Ticker.

Now, instead of seeing all of your friends’ posts, you only see a selected few (selected by Facebook of course) showing up in your news feed. Under the new “Edge Rank” system, friends that don’t “Like” and comment on your posts usually stop seeing them altogether before too long. ” – Rick Rouse
Go read the whole article – you’ll never look back and you will get much more potential exposure for your business activities on Facebook. This could even make up for being bashed for making too many group posts in a day!
Rick recommends this book for even more useful information about Facebook Marketing.

  1. Thanks for referencing my post Jenny. That post went viral on Facebook and Reddit, and the response has been tremendous (and mostly positive).

    I plan to spend some time reading your posts as well. ListBuilding is one of my favorite topics, and I look forward to hearing your perspective on it.

    Thanks again,

    Rick

  2. Thanks for sharing this Jenny. I just went and liked my posts, and noticed I can only see about half a dozen of my posts on my own wall. Glitch? Or something FB is going again on our walls? We sort of depend on FB for our marketing and visibility and at the same time, it’s frustrating 🙂
