Facebook Tips for Bloggers

If you’re a blogger, then being a part of Facebook is pretty much a must. And even though Facebook is constantly changing and may not be as ‘friendly’ as it once was, let’s face it, readers are still looking to there.

Your job is to maximize the Facebook readers who are still seeing your updates in their news feed.

My top five Facebook tips for bloggers cover everything from what, when, and even how to post.

My biggest takeaway is that Facebook is all about images. An image is way more likely to be clicked on and read than a status update without a picture. Something you might want to try is uploading an image from your blog post to Facebook, and then giving it a good caption that includes a link back to your original blog post. This way you’ll actually encourage readers to leave Facebook and visit your blog.

    A lot of people have begun writing a status update and then telling people to look for the link in the first comment. The problem with Facebook’s new algorithm is that it seems to actually penalize you for posting links and even photos now. I’m sure it has to do with the fact that since going public the need for revenue has become critical. If you’re posting a link, in particular, FB wants you to pay to promote your post. I’ve experimented both ways and talked to others who have as well. A status update with a link by far sees less views than one without. Putting the link in the first comment has become a run around the algorithm for a lot of us.
    Of course, if you have amazing engagement numbers already, you may have reached a tipping point where the algorithm is showing your updates with links to enough people to make you happy. Bottom line, you’ve got to experiment and watch the numbers.

      I agree. We have 6 times the reach when we just post short sentences and then link in the first comment. Even photos, while they may get more likes, reach much less of an audience. It’s so frustrating to have over 4100 and 5-10% of your fans see a photo.

      Hello, G+!

      • Jen says:

        Yes, I’ve been beyond frustrated. Just saying create better content is not enough. That’s why so many of us have been trying to figure out ways to beat the system.
        I do like G+. The problem is that it’s still pretty much a techie wasteland. Bloggers are on it because they think they should be they don’t really engage, just post their own links for SEO, etc. I did create a community there called Funny Women. I’ve got very cool women in it but again there’s just no real engagement.
