Customized Facebook Posts
Did you know you can just share your Facebook post with one person or everyone? I am not a big fan of posting a lot on Facebook because I know it turns some family and friends off. I’ve been putting people in lists and categories to share with those that may be interested in just blogs, causes or newsy items. Cute pictures and quotes I share with everyone (most of the time) on Facebook posts.
What type of lists would you like to make? Besides the one Facebook suggests you can make your own lists to customize where your posts go to.
Here are samples ones you could create for your Facebook posts:
- Close Friends
- Close Family
- Family – Wish They Weren’t
- Animal Lovers
- Kid Stuff
- Age Stuff
- Funny People
- Religious People
- Political People
- Pretend Friends
- Media People who don’t have pages
What other categories would you add to your own list?
Do you know what the #1 reason is for people to unlike you or your brand on Facebook? It is
POSTING TOO FREQUENTLY!
44% of people responded that if a brand or person posted too frequently they unliked them. Another reason is if you become repetitive or boring on your Facebook posts. So think twice before you post something you may have posted already or get a little more creative with your Facebook posts. Of course the more friends or people in your lists you have the more you can post. It’s a numbers game.
Besides posting you should also be engaging with others on Facebook. Leaving comments and not just liking other’s shares. It is amazing to see that only about 3% of people on Facebook really engage. For pages it is just 1%. So many people like to sit on the sidelines and watch what everyone else is doing, ever notice that? I’ve noticed since adding a few bloggers they are the most engaged. Of course we love to talk, right?
So for pages it has gotten harder with Facebook who is trying to get us to buy ads to get higher engagement. There is a petition for Facebook page owners to sign if they are not happy about the recent changes there.
Have you noticed a drop in engagement for your Facebook Pages? And Do you unlike someone or a brand page if they post too frequently?
