Subscribe for guaranteed updates
Unless you subscribe, you’re only getting half the story!
Whenever I post new content to this blog, I post a link on my facebook fanpage so that everyone can be notified of it. Unfortunately, it appears that only a minority of the subscribers to the fanpage will actually be notified!
This came to my attention when I recently found this article and learned some important things about facebook:
Facebook Wants You To Pay to Promote Posts. Interested? – By Cynthia Boris
The upshot of this is that when I post new content and put it on the facebook fanpage to notify you of it, you may or may not even see it in your facebook newsfeed.
What’s going on?
What does and doesn’t show up on a person’s Facebook feed is one of life’s great mysteries.
When you promote a post, it will be shown in the news feeds of more of the people who like your Page than you would reach normally. Friends of the people who have interacted with your post will also be more likely to see the story in their news feeds for up to 3 days from when the post was first created.
How do we resolve it?
If you want to be notified of new content, I’m afraid you will need to do one of two things. Fortunately both are very simple.
First, on the right-hand side of this web page and also at the bottom there is a spot where you can enter your email address and click “Subscribe”.
