Facebook recently began a new program in which owners of pages can pay to promote the posts on their pages so that more people see them. Facebook states that no changes will be made to the way you receive posts in your news feed, but because Facebook is restricting the number of people reached for each particular post, news and information from your favorite pages may not show up in your news feed unless you add them to a list. [You can read this article about how to make customized lists for Facebook.]
What this means for you is that posts I make to The Peaceful Mom Facebook page may or may not come up in your news feed, so you may miss them.
If you follow The Peaceful Mom (thank you!) and want to make sure that you receive the latest updates, you may want to do one of more of the following:
*Click here to go the The Peaceful Mom Facebook Page. Hover over the “like” button and when the pop up box appears (this may take a minute), click “Show in News Feed.” This hopefully will ensure that you receive all of the posts in your feed.
*Comment on and like posts that you see in your news feed from The Peaceful Mom. Commenting tells Facebook that you want to see more of these posts.
*Follow me on Twitter (click here). It works a bit differently, but with the same basic idea that news and information from the people you follow comes up in a live feed.
*You can also sign up here for my FREE daily e-newsletter which brings every post directly to your e-mail inbox between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. each day. I have a new RSS feed option as well. Just click the orange icon in the header above.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Have a Peaceful Day!
UPDATE: Here is a screen shot of what I am talking about. The post about this article according to Facebook is reaching 1876 people out of my 19,000+ fans. If I want to reach more I have to pay to have this post “promoted”. The top of the box says,”Get more people who like your Page to see this post.”
I am sure that not all 19,000 people are online at one time, so this number is most assuredly affected by that fact, however, it seems clear that if I want more people to see the post, I will need to pay and I choose not to do so at this time.
