How to See More FTM Posts on Facebook

I received this message on Facebook from Michelle.  It appears that Facebook is now charging fan pages for people to see what they are writing. I get that Facebook is a business, so I can’t complain about it. For me to promote a post – this is what I  must do – pay $75.00 for you to see it. Well, I post 20 times a day, that means it would be around $1500.00 a day for just 17,000 of the 55,000+ fans on Facebook to see my posts.

As you can guess, FTM won’t be paying to promote posts.  I want you to see FTM posts, so here are some suggestions:

When you come to FTM, be sure to like posts that you enjoy.  Facebook tends to share posts that you share. The more likes posts get on FTM, the more likely you are to see them.

1. Be sure to click the Like Button on the posts you do see on Facebook. This lets Facebook know you want to see FTM posts. Facebook is showing posts on pages that are getting interaction, likes etc.

2. Make sure you click the Liked button and choose Show in News Feed. 

3. Check in on and interact on the FTM page. If you don’t interact, FTM gets dropped from your feed.

So, if you just want another option:

    Another way to make sure you see posts from your favorite pages is to create an “interests list.” Then any page you add to the list will show up with all of the posts.

    Me too. But then I can see crap I dont want like when someone else likes a link, comments on a nonfriends post or inappropriate photo /video. Ugh.

    I like and Share a decent amount of links for LRWC, but it’s dropped off my newfeed (yours has to, and a bunch of other pages)

    Hello. I’m interacting now. Witness me interacting. Please, for the love of all that is holy, why can’t I just CHOOSE what I see?

    I HAVE been having that problem! I rarely ever see a FTM post just pop up in my news feed (despite having the “show in news feed” option selected), I usually notice them up in the box on the right hand side of my page. Ugh, Facebook sucks. Seriously.

    Seriously? They’re charging you $75 a post? Seriously? That’s just insane. Whatever happened to their ‘we will never charge you’ promise? Guess they’re going to lose a LOT of corporate business. Thanks for NOT being awesome anymore, Facebook.

  • Debbie

    This explains a lot. I have noticed I’m getting a lot less responses to the posts I have on my own business page. I still see your FTM posts, but I usually do “like” your posts on a regular basis.

  • Rachel

    I don’t really like this whole mess, but liking so maybe I can see more of you in my newsfeed :/
