Iron Cooker Updates – April 7 Newsletter
April 7th, 2011 by ironcooker
Welcome to our newsletter
One reason why is because they did not make it public.
Have you noticed that you are only seeing updates in your newsfeed from t……he same people lately?
Have you also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links,
the same circle of people are commenting and everyone else seems to be ignoring you?
Don’t worry, everyone still loves you and nobody has intentionally blocked you.
The problem is that a large chunk of your friend/fan list can’t see anything you post and here’s why:
The “New Facebook” has a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from
people who you’ve recently interacted with or interacted the most with
(which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile).
So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts
within those few weeks or vice versa – you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!!
HERE’S THE FIX: On the homepage click the “Most Recent” title on the right of the Newsfeed,
then click on the drop down arrow beside it and select “Edit Options”, click on “Show Posts From”
and change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages” (you can also access the “Edit Options”
link at the very bottom of the facebook homepage on the right) Note:
Business pages do not have a newsfeed however page owners should adjust the settings on their personal accounts.
The good news is: now you can now view all of your friends and fans again.
The bad news is: YOU ARE STILL INVISIBLE to a large portion of your list.
You must get the word out to ALL of your friends and fans by inviting them to this event or creating one of your own
so they can read the post and adjust their settings. To invite your friends:
Click on “Attending” at the top and then you will see an option to invite your friends at the top left.
It’s public so everyone who logs onto facebook can view it and even the friends who can’t see your posts WILL see the event invitation.
You can also tweet about it, create a blog post or send out an email to your subscribers in hopes of reaching them all.
