How to Never Miss a Post From Your Favorite Facebook Pages
A short while ago we wrote an article about a viral status update being circulated by Facebook administrators. Studies show that page posts typically reach a small amount of their total followers.This is due to the EdgeRank algorithm. We have covered this several times in the past. Facebook uses EdgeRank to determine what populates a user’s Newsfeed. Just liking a page doesn’t guarantee that it will show up in your feed—selecting the ‘Show in Newsfeed’ option doesn’t bypass EdgeRank either. Liking, commenting and sharing on a page’s content gives it a higher ranking in your EdgeRank and makes it more likely you’ll see it.
If you want to make sure you receive all updates from your favorite pages, then there are a couple of things you can do:
- Add the page to an Interest List. We cover this in detail here.
- Opt in to receive notification from the Facebook page.
Page notifications are a new feature Facebook introduced earlier this month, and it may not be available for all pages just yet. Any time a page you follow issues a status update, then you’ll receive a Facebook notification. Granted, this could get a little annoying and might be a little much to do for every page you follow, but this is a great way to make sure you don’t miss important posts from your favorite pages.
