What do Facebook’s latest changes to news feed algorithm mean to business

What do Facebook’s latest changes to news feed algorithm mean to business

I just wanted to let you know about some really important changes for businesses using social media to market.

On January 11th, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook would be changing its news feed algorithm to prioritise content from “friends, family and groups.”

“As we roll this out,” Zuckerberg wrote, “You’ll see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media. And the public content you see more will be held to the same standard—it should encourage meaningful interactions between people.”

What does this mean for business? in short a huge amount….It has never been more important to get a social strategy in place and adopt a strategy that works

How to continue reaching customers on Facebook

  1. Continue posting engaging, quality content that prompts comments
  2. But don’t fall into the “engagement-bait” trap
  3. Encourage customers to follow your Facebook Page
  4. Increase your ad budget
  5. Make more Facebook Live videos
  6. Invest time in Facebook Groups

We have constructed a series of workshops to help businesses adapt to the ever changing world of social media – check them out:
