Yesterday, when a reader reached out via Facebook Messenger with this...
I wasn't surprised. I get that a lot.
Here's an example. This post has been up on my page for 4 days. I have 7100 Facebook Fans. 225 people have been reached. If I want ALL of my fans to see it, that will cost $60!!!
Thankfully, there are ways to gain control of your Facebook feed and the information you see. For the most part. SO, what's the fix? How can YOU choose who and what you see? It's complicated. (I think that's by design so Facebook can keep collecting ad revenue from the big brands and bloggers.)
Below is a step by step guide with photos to help you navigate the madness, and gain control of your feed and actually pick who you want to see!
How to Personalize Your Facebook Feed
Step 1. Click the little down arrow at the top of your facebook page
Step 2. Choose "News Feed Preferences"
Step 3. Choose the top option: "Prioritize who to see first."
Step 4. ON this page you can choose your preferences. you can also sort via the drop down to choose only friends, pages you follow, and the people you currently see first.
Step. 5 Click the photo of the people/pages you want to view and unclick the ones you do not.
Step 6. Once you've made your selections, scroll down to click, DONE!
And there you go! So, if you want to see me, without me winning the lottery, head over to Facebook and follow the above steps to get your feed in order, Click Here!
P.S. You may also want to check your security settings, Facebook is always dicking around with them too!
