If you are like me, you have lots of Facebook Friends and you support the companies you do business with, your strategic business partners, and ones that relate to your industry or hobbies. However, sometimes it seems like what you are seeing in your News Feed isn’t encouraging, helpful, or interesting. What do you do?
Well, my recommendation is to filter your settings so that you get what you want to see on a daily basis! Also, are you aware that if you Share, Like or Comment on posts more regularly in your news feed that Facebook will detect you want more and create your News Feed accordingly? Yup! Tis true.
So how do you control your News Feed?
- Hover over the “Like” button on your friends wall or company page that you have liked and make sure “Show In News Feed” is selected.
- Once that is set, if you select “Settings”, you can choose from All, Most, or Only Important updates to display to change what will post into your News Feed. The settings are automatically set to Most Updates, which I kinda think is crazy, but that is how it is!
- If you REALLY don’t want to miss a post, select “Get Notifications” from that same drop-down menu. This will ensure you get every single post!
- Additionally, you can use Facebook’s new “Interest Lists”.
