IMPORTANT FACEBOOK CHANGE! READ THIS OR LOSE YOUR FRIEND’S/FAN’S POSTS!!

Maybe you’ve noticed that you are only seeing updates in your newsfeed from the same people lately? Maybe you’ve also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links, the same bunch of people are commenting and all the others seem to be ignoring you?

Fear not, everyone still loves you and nobody has intentionally blocked you. The problem is that a your friend/fan list can’t see anything you post and here’s why:

This is just a another in the short list of changes FaceBook has been making.  They now have a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people who you’ve recently chatted with or contact the most (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile). So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa – you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!!

HERE’S THE FIX:

Scroll down to the bottom of the newsfeed on the homepage and click on “Edit Options”

click on “Show Posts From”

change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages”

Note: This is the fix for personal pages not sure the business pages are set up the same way so ck.

To let your friends know, you can’t just post an update about this because lots of your friends/fans already can’t see your posts by default.  Either send out a message to everyone on your list or post an event explaining the situation like this one and invite your entire fan base and/or friend list. However you do it pass the word through all your Social Sites.

Opening doors to your Social Media Success!
