Where was that notification from my local law inforcement Facebook page that an escaped convict was on the run in my neighborhood? Do I always lock my doors? Good question.
Why was I not informed from my local news and weather FB page of the tornado coming toward me? My friend in another state saw it on FB and she wasn’t even in harms way.
Where’s my thirty percent off coupon for my favorite boutique? All my friends got theirs – courtesy of FB.
Why am I the last to know of my favorite authors latest bestseller?
Do you ever wonder out of the blue why you don’t see all posts from the pages you have liked on Facebook?
You scroll through your newsfeed religiously every chance you get – morning, noon, and night. You should only get more information if you stay glued to the tv 24/7 or dissect the daily paper from cover to cover.
The truth is, fellow Facebook readers, you haven’t been active with your liking, commenting, and sharing of the pages you’ve liked. You skip right along through your newsfeed taking only what you want and skipping the rest.
You haven’t been true to the pages you’ve liked. This is the reason your FB notifications have gone stale. When was the last time you actually liked a post or commented on pages you have followed? Have you ever shared or do you keep all that great info you receive all for your own, diminishing their post down to nothing with others acting along side of you? You’d be surprised what a little action on your part will get you.
For example, on my author Facebook page, just one share of one of my posts from someone out of my immediate network brings many new visitors to my page. This action works like a snowball gathering speed picking up everything in its path that sometimes results in new likes and comments and another share or two. The plus side for the one who shared this content is that she’s now in the loop to receive more news from yours truly. It’s a Win-Win situation!
Oh, it’s true, and you know you’ve heard all this before, but I could preach this until the cows come home to no avail. Do you want to have to search for information that should automatically be coming your way? If not, you should immediately begin interacting with the pages you’ve liked to continue receiving their notifications. It’s out of my hands.
On the other hand, all you have to do is google that new fridge you’ve been eyeing and instantly, sponsored ads for that exact fridge pop up like weeds in your newsfeed! Facebook and Google are best friends! It’s amazing so be careful what you google…
Facebook is funny like that.
