Welcome to the first Boost Your Post Party on Ducks 'n a Row.
I went to great lengths explaining my frustration with Facebook in yesterday's post. You can read it here: "Facebook - How Frustrated Are You?" That frustration has given birth to the idea of holding a Facebook post-boosting party.
The simple premise of our party is that we will help each other get our Facebook posts seen by more of our fans. If we are not following you already, we can like your page while we are boosting your post (Like from your personal Facebook page, please, so that it counts in their numbers).
Help us get the word out!
Add the URL to one or two of your recent Facebook posts that you would like to boost. (How to find that URL is explained at the end of this post.)
Visit the 2 posts (or four if you shared 2 with us) above yours and like, comment and/or share them.*
It is as simple as that. It'd be so great if you'd share about this party on your other social media, too. Let's spread the word. What I love about blogging is that we develop such great camaraderie among our community of writers. We need each other and we help each other where we can.
Since this is a social media experiment, please check back with us and share your experiences. Is it helping you to reach more of your readers? How is it working out for you?
*Note: Facebook weighs our activity. Likes are ranked the lightest weight (but still are great to get) Comments count more with Facebook. Shares are the most influential with them. Of course, we can also combine our response and like, comment and/or share on the same post.
Happy Blogging, my friends.
HOW TO FIND YOUR FACEBOOK POST URL:
- Open up your Facebook Fanpage.
- Open the Administrative window (Admin Panel) so that you can see the list of most recent posts at the top left of the window.
- After you have added your status report and clicked "POST" the post name will appear at the top left of the Admin. page.
- Click on the name of the post and it will open in a new window.
The URL of that new window is the URL of your post. It will look something like this:
That is the URL you will use for our link party. :)
