BREAKING DOWN THE FACEBOOK CHANGES

What’s Upwith Facebook?

A rundown on how Facebook is changing the Marketing Game

Mark Zuckerberg says that ad media is crowding out personal interaction on Facebook and that Facebook will be making changes to encourage more user to user social engagements and less direct advertisements.

BE seen

Engagement

• Space in the news feed is limited. With these new changes, it will be even more important to prioritize the content you choose to publish. • Frequency no longer means exposure. Scale back how often you post and focus on quality over quantity. • Create content that will lead people to interact with each other without instructing them to do so. • Provide instructions to your fans on how to turn on the “See First” option on your business page.

• Posts that spark conversations and ‘meaningful interactions’ between people will now be prioritized. • Comments will now be more valuable than likes. • Focus on getting people to connect with each other. • Avoid engagement bait! Don’t use any language that lures people into commenting on your posts.

LIVE

•Due to video being primarily a passive experience, short 60 second videos will be seen less. Same goes for animated loops, GIFs, & memes. • Live video on Facebook gets 6x the interaction than other content. It has the potential to be maximized as a new way to advertise on Facebook, achieving the interactions that will be prioritized on a user’s news feed. • Take advantage of live video and try to make it a part of your strategic advertising (especially because this feature is free!)

STRATEGY

• Master Facebook ads. • Groups are successful because they involve meaningful engagements, encourage users to join groups and interact with your business on another level. • Remember, less quantity and more quality posts.

SO ALL THIS MEANS.. .

Facebook’s changes will affect the way we all use Facebook to advertise. By decreasing the amount of ad content it’s users see and directly demoting ads on user’s news feeds, marketer’s will have to implement new strategies to reach their target audiences and find a way to make them interact and connect with each other. Instead of bombarding user’s with posts and asking them to like or leave short comments, businesses should start longer engagements between users in order to boost their reach and have their posts prioritized.

What is Engagement bait? and howto avoid it.
