Have you had a look at the Facebook Explore feed yet? Since the recent fb changes, posts from friends and family, and pages you interact with a lot, take priority in your news feed. Posts from businesses and other pages you’ve liked will appear in the Explore feed, so you need to actively go there to see them. As a business, this makes it much less likely that my customers will see my posts – not great.
So, aside from being unhappy about it’s potential effect on my business, I thought that as a personal fb user I would hate the Explore feed. I mean, why would I want to go to a special page to see all the companies who are trying to sell me stuff? But I thought I should take a look, so I know what I’m dealing with.
I’m genuinely surprised to say this, but it’s great! I’ve already lost a couple of hours on there this morning. (Hey, leave me alone, it’s Sunday, I’m allowed to loaf around on the internet.) It’s definitely worth checking out. To find it, go to the left hand side of your page, to Explore / See More / Explore Feed.
As a side note, if you want to continue to see my posts on fb, then regular interaction – liking, sharing, commenting – will mean you keep seeing them, as well as helping me to reach new people. (Thank you!) My facebook page is here: www.facebook.com/SnaefellSoaps.
I also have a group called Relax – It’s Bathtime! which you can find here: www.facebook.com/groups/963144557168634/ This group is for general chat about all things Bath & Body related. Maybe there’s something you really want but can’t find – lemongrass scented bath salts, or whatever, or you’ve found a funny meme that sums up your best friend’s soap addiction, post it in the group. I also use this group to get opinions, conduct market research, and ask for volunteer testers when I’m trialling new recipes or fragrances. I also might conduct the odd giveaway 🙂 So if you’d like to be involved with that, join the group and say hello.
