If you are a blogger I’m sure you’ve heard at least one blogger (if not more) complain that they have “X” amount of followers on Facebook but only a very small percentage actually see their posts. I had been noticing my reach go down, down, down lately but then I noticed something else. I was beginning to notice that some of my favorite bloggers were sharing photos and posts from other bloggers whose pages I KNEW I liked yet never see updates from. Hmmm…….
See? My friend Jenny from the NY Melrose Family shared a photo from Your Homebased Mom yet I never saw that come through my feed when Leigh Ann shared it herself. Now, I KNOW that I “like” Your Homebased Mom on Facebook but headed over to their Facebook page to double check.
Sure enough I had “liked” it just like I thought but if I clicked on that “liked” button “Get Notifications” was NOT checked off. So, I went ahead and checked it off.
Now, whenever Your Homebased Mom or anyone else whose page I “like” and have “get notifications” checked off shares something on Facebook, I will get a notification. I should also see their posts in my feed again. IF NOT, I will still have their notification which is better than nothing!
It was a super easy fix and now I feel like I am connected to my favorite bloggers again. I can’t guarantee that this will work in the weeks and months to come because Facebook is FOREVER changing how things work but for now, it works!
Now, be a lamb and head on over to our Facebook page and make sure “Get Notifications” is checked off. You rock!
