If you’ve recently noticed a lack of updates from your favorite brands, bloggers, or fan pages on Facebook (or maybe you haven’t realized it until just now), it may be because of the introduction of Facebook’s new Promoted Posts.
But we can help you fix it.
brands and fan pages the opportunity to pay to make sure their updates show up in their fans’ news feeds. But that, along with Facebook’s new EdgeRank
algorithm has also increases the chances that you don’t see what you actually want to see, but what Facebook has determined you should see.
our awesome updates–or any page’s updates–there’s a quick fix for getting all them back into
your direct feed.
1. Go to our fan page, or others that you’d especially
like to get updates from.
2. Click on the “Liked” button under its
cover photo. (see screenshot, above)
3. Activate the “Show in News Feed” option and then you’ll go
back to getting all the updates you want. Take that, EdgeRank.
Honestly, we kind of hope you get to see what we post on Facebook
because you like seeing what we post on Facebook – not because we have
to pay for it. -Jeana
If you’re not already a Cool Mom Picks Facebook fan, hey! This is a good time to do it. It’s fun over there, promise. While you’re at it, visit your favorite pages and make sure you activate their updates in your news feed.
*Note: If a sponsored post appears in your feed, it will be marked “sponsored.”
I was just wondering about this! Thanks for the tip.
I’ve been doing that and not seeing a difference. I click on the “liked” button, and “show in news feed” is already selected. It’s driving me insane. I like pages because I want info sent to me; that Facebook is holding it back is crazy making. Plus my own pages aren’t getting seen. Grrrr….
Ditto what Jen said! The “show in news feed” doesn’t make much difference; stuff still doesn’t show up. 🙁
This tip is incorrect… As the commenters above have noted, that setting does not override the EdgeRank algorithm: http://scalablesocialmedia.com/2012/06/facebook-is-now-requiring-business-page-owners-to-pay-to-have-their-status-updates-read-by-every-subscriber/ If you want to see all updates from a page, you can add them to a list, then view that list: http://www.iheartfaces.com/2012/05/facebook-list-pages/
It doesn’t override EdgeRank, however it adds another factor that adds to the likelihood that your fan pages are not showing up in feed.
Appreciate the suggestion, Robin.
