The Facebook Thing

There's somethin' happenin' here ...

There’s somethin’ happenin’ here …

Speaking of Facebook … some folks have asked about why all the new boat photos, links to stories, posts, etc. etc. don’t show up in their feeds, even though they’ve liked my Facebook page. Here’s the scoop:

My Brian Robbins Facebook page is an “author’s page” – considered a business page by Facebook, with yours truly being the page administrator.

Facebook now requires page administrators to PAY to promote status updates to fans who already like a page. So, there’s ransom involved: many people are missing posts and only about 10% (or less) of the folks who like this page receive updates in their news feeds. The same goes for any of your favorite businesses, charities, musicians, artists … you name it. And this wasn’t always the case.

That means most of you are probably not seeing most of my Facebook posts on a regular basis.

To keep receiving all posts:
* Head on over to my Facebook page;
* Hover your mouse (cursor/finger/whatever magic appendage you prefer) on the “Like” button near my name;
* In the drop-down menu, please select “Add to interest lists” – and that should do it.

If you’re one of the 10% who see this particular posting, I’d be much obliged if you share it. And I’ll repost it again in a day or two and see if we can get a few more folks on board.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that the Facebook greedheads will take offense and shut me off … but in a way, they already have, haven’t they?

It shouldn’t be this complicated.

(With apologies and thanks to Todd Snider – wicked album cover, man.)
