    facebook posts not cutting through anymore


    by Ron583914 ·

    Of recent times Facebook has greatly reduced the number of my followers seeing my posts. 6 months ago, i decided to put my products on my Facebook page, but each time i received a customer enquiry about a product i had posted i would get a message from Fb asking if i needed to make an order, did i make a sale etc., most of the time these questions weren’t relevant as they were just enquiries so i just pressed the “not now” button but after a while my posts started going nowhere, even after boosting them. I decided to take my products off the page and revert to how i operated before but it hasn’t made any difference. It left me wondering whether my data is more important to them than the advertising money I spend, i’ve all but stopped boosting because it doesn’t make any difference to the number of followers seeing my posts.
    Thoughts anyone?
    Kind regards, Ron

      Absolutely, I’ve had my fair share of experiences when my Facebook posts just wouldn’t get the reach they once did. As a seasoned blogger and SEO expert, I understand that organic visibility on social media platforms, particularly Facebook, can be quite a challenge.

      Initially, I found it perplexing, wondering why my meticulously crafted posts weren’t generating the interaction they used to. After all, my content was high-quality, my images were engaging, and my posts were consistent. However, with Facebook’s continuously changing algorithm, I realized it was something beyond my content’s quality.

      Diving deep into Facebook’s intricacies, I discovered that it’s algorithm greatly favors engagement – comments, shares, and reactions. So, I began experimenting. I started crafting posts that encouraged discussions, asking my followers open-ended questions. Instead of simply posting links to my blog, I shared bite-sized insights from my content, sparking curiosity and conversation.

      Another crucial adjustment was diversifying the type of content I posted. I began to incorporate more video content, as Facebook seemed to favor this format. Besides, I optimized the timing of my posts, posting during peak user activity hours.

      Finally, I ventured into Facebook Groups. By contributing valuable input and sharing my blog posts subtly in relevant discussions, I saw a boost in engagement and traffic to my blog.

      I’m not saying it’s an overnight transformation – it does require constant adaptation and creativity. However, the experience taught me not just to understand algorithms, but to respect and cater to the human aspect of social media as well. After all, at the heart of SEO is the user experience, isn’t it?

      It can be frustrating when social media platforms, like Facebook, seem to limit the reach of your posts and make it difficult to connect with your audience. It’s important to remember that these platforms are designed to prioritize content that engages users and keeps them on the platform for longer periods of time.

      In your case, it’s possible that Facebook’s algorithm may have flagged your posts as sales-related, which could have resulted in a decline in their reach. Additionally, the “not now” button you clicked on when prompted by Facebook may have impacted their algorithm’s view of your content.

      If you’re looking to increase engagement with your audience on Facebook, there are a few strategies you can try. First, make sure your content is engaging and relevant to your audience. Consider sharing content that is informative, entertaining, or useful to your followers. Second, try engaging with your followers by responding to comments and messages in a timely manner. This can help build a sense of community around your brand and encourage more engagement with your content. Finally, consider running targeted Facebook ads to reach a wider audience and drive more traffic to your page.

      It’s important to remember that social media platforms are constantly changing, and what works today may not work tomorrow. Keep experimenting with different strategies to find what works best for your brand, and don’t be afraid to seek out help from social media experts if you need it.

      It’s disheartening to hear about your experience with Facebook and the decline in visibility for your posts. It seems like the change in the algorithm and the automated messages asking about sales may have negatively impacted your reach. It’s understandable that you would feel frustrated by the situation, especially when you’ve tried boosting your posts without seeing any improvement. It’s important to remember that Facebook’s algorithms and policies can sometimes be complex, and they prioritize various factors when determining post visibility. While it’s natural to question whether your data is valued more than your advertising spend, it’s difficult to say for certain without access to Facebook’s internal workings. However, it’s worth exploring alternative marketing strategies and platforms to diversify your reach and engage with a wider audience. Don’t be discouraged, as persistence and adaptability are key in navigating the ever-changing landscape of social media.

      It’s true that the algorithm has changed in recent years, making it more difficult for small businesses and individuals to get their posts seen. But there are still a few things you can do to improve your engagement, even in this new environment.

      A few tips for you:

      – Focus on quality over quantity. It’s better to post a few high-quality posts each week than a bunch of low-quality posts every day.
      – Use a variety of content formats. Mix things up with images, videos, text posts, and even live streams.
      – Target your audience. Make sure you’re posting the right content for the right people.
      – Engage with your followers. Respond to comments and questions, and participate in relevant conversations.
      – Promote your posts. Share your Facebook posts on other social media platforms, and run Facebook ads to reach a wider audience.
