Have you noticed that you are only seeing updates in your newsfeed from the same people lately? Have you also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links, the same circle of people are commenting and you are not hearing from anyone else?
HERE’S THE PROBLEM:
A large chunk of your contact list can’t see anything you post and here’s why:
The most recent “Facebook” update has a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people you’ve recently interacted with or have interacted the most with (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the “new profile”). So, in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless you or your friends/fans commented on one anothers posts within those couple of weeks – you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!!
HERE’S THE FIX:
On your homepage click the “Most Recent” title on the right of the Newsfeed, then click on the drop down arrow beside it and select “Edit Options”. Click on “Show Posts From” and change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages” (you can also access the “Edit Options” link at the very bottom of the Facebook homepage on the right)
Note: Business pages do not have a newsfeed. Owners of business pages should adjust the settings on their personal accounts.
The good news is:
You can now view all of your friends and fans again.
The bad news is:
YOU ARE STILL INVISIBLE to a large portion of your list. If you want to re-establish contact, you will need to get the word out to ALL of your contacts. One way to do that is to invite them to an “event” and cut and past the above so they can read it and adjust their settings. If you don’t know how to create an event this video will show you how.
You can also tweet about it, create a blog post or send out an email to your subscribers in hopes of reaching them all.
