Are you having trouble getting my posts to come through your Facebook feed…and have you missed out on some really hot deals because of it?
Well, have no fear, dear readers!
I’ve got two great solutions for you PLUS a helpful step-by-step tutorial to keep those deals a’ comin’! Are you ready? Let’s get started…
Two Solutions to the Madness
Solution 1 – Interact More on the Page! This is the Golden Rule of Facebook. Remember, social media is about being “social” and per the new Facebook protocols (sounds fancy, doesn’t it?), Facebook only shows those posts from the pages “it” thinks you like most.
How does it determine this? By how often you interact with that page.
When you “like”, share or leave comments on posts from Happy Money Saver, Facebook takes this to mean, “Oh, she/he must REALLY like this” and starts filtering the posts through your feed automatically. The more interaction, the more posts you’ll see.
Solution 2 – “Un-like” and then “re-like” Happy Money Saver. I know it sounds silly, but it works pretty well for a lot of people. Granted, it’s not a foolproof solution (see Solution #1) but it’s a start! 😉
Now for the Step-By-Step Tutorial! This will ensure all the posts come through in an organized fashion…
Step 1: First things first. Make sure you’ve “liked” Happy Money Saver on Facebook
Step 3: From there, scroll down your left sidebar and click the word “Lists”. (I realize this example already shows my personal H$S list but I’m going to walk you through creating a NEW one. Bear with me…)
Step 4: On the new screen, complete the following steps in order –
1) Click “Create List”.
2) Under “List Name” enter “Happy Money Saver”.
3) Click the “Create” button:
Step 5: Next, click the “Add friends” link (it sounds strange, but stay with me 😉 )
Step 6: Then on the next screen in the upper left corner, you’re going to click “Pages” – NOT friends:
Step 7: Type “Happy Money Saver” into the search box and when it appears, click on it (a blue check mark will appear). Click “Done” when finished:
Step 8: Voila! Now every Happy Money Saver post is organized in a custom list for you to view at your leisure. This list will also be accessible from your left side bar under your “Lists” heading:
Step 9: Last but not least, hover your mouse next to the Happy Money Saver List in your left side bar (a “pencil” will appear), and select “Add to Favorites”.
And there you have it! Three awesome solutions to one very annoying Facebook issue! (Now, if only every little bothersome Facebook-quirk was as easy to fix as this…! Hee hee!)
