Facebook Rumours

I posted this on my status the other day, I’ve seen lots of others do the same and thought, well, better be safe than sorry.

New Facebook Procedures – all page owners are asked to tell fans: If you are not an active fan of ours (liking or commenting on photos/our wall) as of October 31, 2011 you will no longer see updates from us in your news feed!

PLEASE LIKE THIS STATUS to keep seeing our updates 🙂

So what is it all about, and is there any truth in it?

Well, yes, but adding the above as a status is not going to help much. You have probably all noticed that Facebook has made a lot of changes recently and will be making more. One of the most noticable is how your wall has changed. The updates that are received are now all sorted by Facebook using a system where they put a value on every update you make and they are only seen by other Facebook users who are most likely to be interested in reading what you have to say. So those you interact with mostly are most likely to see your updates than those who you barely speak to on Facebook.

What does this mean for business pages? The more interaction you get on your page the more your posts will be shown to your likers. This means your page will not always be shown to every single one of your likers, but it will be shown to those who have posted on your wall, or liked your posts or interacted in other ways. So if you want to get noticed you have to work harder, but you will still get noticed by those who still want to see what you have to say.
