I figured Facebook would be making some changes after they went public and my suspicions were correct. Facebook is now charging pages (like mine) up to $75 PER POST to ensure that all of the individuals who already “like” I Can Teach My Child on Facebook will see that post in their news feed. Ugh!
FYI: These images are actual screenshots from my page.
Their reasoning is simple…only an average of 16% of “likers” are seeing a page’s content in their newsfeed. This is true for my page as well.
I am thankful to Facebook. It has helped my blog to grow and, up until now, it has been a free resource. However, I feel like I have spent a lot of time and effort promoting my Facebook page, only to have their algorithms keep people who already like my page from seeing my posts so that I will pay for them to be seen.
Now that I’ve gotten my “rant” out of the way, here’s what you can do. Would you PLEASE help me out?
I promise it will take only a few seconds.
-Go to the I Can Teach My Child! Facebook page.
-Right underneath the Timeline photo, hover over where it says “Liked”.
-Scroll down and make sure “Show in News Feed” is checked.
-After that, please do one more thing! On the same menu as above, select “+ New List”.
-Then name your list and choose who you want to see it. I would suggest choosing “Only Me.”
That should ensure that you are still able to see my posts in your Newsfeed (until Facebook changes again, that is). :)
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
