Boston Restaurant Blog -- October, 2012
Friday, October 26, 2012
It seems that Facebook has made changes to their site which apparently cause both business pages and personal pages to often be seen "less" by people in their timelines, even if they are connected with the pages via being fans or friends. So yesterday I posted a question on Facebook about whether our fans have been able to see our particular posts, and while at least some are still are able to see them, many others apparently do not get to see some or even all of the posts. Whatever the cause of this, it seems time to do a workaround, giving you easy access to our posts--while also letting you know how to help get our page back into your timeline (and helping us in the process).
First, the workaround. The easiest way to see our Facebook posts is to simply go to the following link:
Another way is to go to our news feed, which can be used in most browsers (you will need a plug-in if you use Google Chrome):
From what some people are saying, Facebook pages will more likely show up in your timeline if you "like" specific posts within the page, or if you interact by adding comments. For instance, there might be a post on a new restaurant review and you "like" the post, or you put something in the comment box about how you have been there recently or what dish you might like there (or not like!). "Likes" and "comments" are apparently the way to go if you want to keep pages in your timeline, so even one or two of them would possibly bring our page into your timeline.
Hopefully this is a temporary issue with Facebook, as it sounds like many businesses and people are frustrated about their pages being more "invisible." In the meantime, the links above and "liking" or commenting on a page should hopefully do the trick. Thank you!
