How to Make Sure Your Favorite Pages Show in Your Newsfeed, including mine!
There are things you can do to make sure the pages you like continue to show up in your news feed. First, hold your cursor over the “Liked” button at the top of your favorite pages and make sure “Default” or “See First” is checked in the drop down menu. Notifications can be “Off” or “On”, whichever you prefer.
Another way to make sure “Favorites/Liked Pages” continue to show in your “News Feed”, while in your “News Feed”, if you see a post from a liked Page, put your cursor over the name, a small pop up window will appear from that Page, put your cursor over the “Liked”, “Choose what you see from this page” will appear, click “Posts in News Feed”.
Also, interact with your favorite pages. The more you “Like” and comment on pictures and status updates, the more you will see them in your Newsfeed!!
TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE RECEIVING ALL OF GRACE’S POSTS IN YOUR NEWS FEED, YOU CAN TRY TO DO THIS ALSO:
- Fix the Hidden News Feed Setting:
- On the left hand side of the page, under your “FAVORITES”, hover next to “News Feed”, open/click the gear, click – “Edit Preferences”. Here you can chose to “Prioritize” you favs. (More info on this at the bottom)
Again, interact With As Much Content As Possible:
Facebook’s algorithms are constantly changing, but one thing is pretty clear: they want to show you content they think you’ll like. By interacting with posts, you’re telling Facebook’s algorithms that you like the content.
As it is, it’s a broken system and results in a catch-22– if Facebook isn’t showing you content from a page, you’re never likely to interact with any of that page’s posts and the pattern of not receiving that page’s content will continue. So, to fix the problem it requires a manual approach of teaching Facebook what you want to see:
- Visit Grace Lozada’s Facebook Page
- Click ‘Like’ on any posts you like, the more the better. You don’t need to “Like” things at random, just check out our content and “Like” what you like, it’s that simple. It also helps to “Like” posts containing all the different forms of content – pictures, links, videos, etc.
- Sharing and Commenting is even more powerful. Facebook knows that it’s easy to click Like on posts without much thought, but it’s the content that you really like that you’ll Share on your page or comment on. If you see something worth sharing, share it. And don’t forget to comment on posts you like, any brand page like ours loves to hear from you.
- Post Your Own Content! Most brand pages like ours allow you to post directly on our wall. Share a photo, a story, ask a question, or just say hello and introduce yourself – it’s what community is all about.
This is the reality of what Facebook has become and you need to apply this lesson to everything you see in your News Feed going forward.
REMEMBER, this applies to posts from your friends as well and not just brand pages. From now on, under the new Facebook model, if you see a post you like, you need to actually click Like or Share or Comment and not just think about how much you like it and move on – if you don’t, the chance of seeing another post you like from that person/page just went down considerably.
If you’d like to enable notifications
This is the ONLY current way to ensure that you’re at least notified of all the content that a page or a friend posts. Depending on how you feel about notifications, this option may not make sense if you’re following a page or a friend that puts out a TON of updates.
To see this version, click the down arrow beside News Feed in the left column and select Most Recent.
There are two important things to know about this view:
- While the posts generally appear in reverse chronological order, if one of your friends likes or comments on a post, that can bump it back up to the top of the list.
- You still won’t see every post from all your friends, groups, and Pages you follow because Facebook still curates your list. Perhaps more surprisingly, you may not even see posts that you can see in your Top Stories feed!
Once you’ve selected this view, it should stay this way as long as you remain logged into Facebook, even if you close your browser. However, you may find it occasionally reverts back but it’s usually pretty obvious when this happens because the posts are all out of order again.
My experience: My settings vary from page to page. Updates from some of the pages I like are important to me and I prefer to see them first. Most of the ‘interest area’ pages are in default setting. I have unfollowed a couple of sites due to sheer volume of posts they publish on a daily basis.
News Feed Preferences have 3 primary options:
- Prioritize who to see first
Select all the people and pages whose stories you want to see right away.
- Unfollow people to hide their posts
A single location to hide stories from everyone who bugs you.
- Reconnect with people you unfollowed
Someone you followed had an enlightening moment and you want to follow them again? You can do so from here.
Best of luck and I hope this was helpful information!
