Facebook keeps getting more whack. It ain’t broke and they keep trying to fix it. It’s like when you try to work on a craft project and you’re not fully amazed with it so you think “I’ll make just a small tweak here. Oh wait, now it needs just a little more here. And just a smidge adjusted here . . .” and next thing you know you’re throwing it on the ground, stomping on it and screaming. Apparently these are the things they teach you at Harvard . . .
Instead of seeing updates from small folk like us and other fan pages you “like”, Facebook cowered in the corner when their investors got ticked and decided you should instead see the posts from places like Walmart, Target and McDonalds . . .because you don’t see enough of their ads elsewhere. I mean, how else would these businesses possibly survive if they can’t control Facebook too??? *sad face*
Now, we love y’all, we really do – so no offense, . . . but Jon and I would much rather go shopping than pay Facebook to “promote” our posts . . .which apparently means that Facebook is only going to tell, like, 3 of y’all about our most recent video. Oh SNAP!!
We realize that our videos are vital to your everyday living, and you watch them to help take your mind to that happy place after your boss gets done yelling at you or your child draws on the wall with a Sharpie marker or you’re so sick of wedding planning you might go insane or you just need a reminder that true love really does exist.
SOOOOO . . .below is what you have to do to stay updated with ALL our Facebook posts. We’re sure you’ve seen this message a million times already from other pages you “like”. Frankly, if you actually follow all those steps and make “interest lists” (????) to stay up to date with us, we should be paying YOU instead of Facebook because all that below is all sorts of ridiculous. Dorothy had an easier time getting back to Kansas than we’re going to have trying to stay up to date with all our photographer and videographer friends. But alas, we pass it along for those of you who are interested . . .
ATTENTION FANS! Facebook now requires page administrators to pay to promote their updates if we want our content to be seen by our fans. If we do not pay to promote our posts, only about 10% of the fans actually receive the updates in their Facebook home page feed.
To keep RECEIVING ALL POSTS FROM US you have to hover the mouse on the “Like” button near our name. In the drop-down menu select “ADD TO INTEREST LISTS”, and then create an interest list (and make a name for your favorite sites). When you select that interest list you will see ALL of our posts and you won’t miss anything important!
We recommend that you follow the above instructions for ANY Facebook page you care about, so you can continue seeing all the posts from the pages you love.
Thanks for your help, and please share this with your friends!
Ok . . so maybe it’s not rocket science, but seriously . . .
