Understanding Algorithms for Executive Social Media and Organizations

What Not to Say on Social Media

It seems the rules of the game continue to change. Social Media is a marketing medium nearly every business sees as valuable but it is becoming more difficult to reach the target audience.

Most social media users heard about Facebook’s plans to limit our exposure to business content last week and we’ve heard from customers that the number of ads filling their feed this past week is out of control. Advertisers are trying to double down and reach as many people as they can, while they can, before the rules change.

One Facebook Business page went so far as to tell Followers how to continue to see their content; a big No-No for Facebook.

Our approach to social media continues to hold constant.

Our approach to social media continues to hold constant. Share engaging content on a consistent basis. Once, twice, three times a week. Share promotional content one time for every five to six interest-based posts. Boost, or promote posts, based on your budget. Select your best and most engaging posts to promote. Pin your “sales” post to the top of your page.

Marketing is more than social media. Marketing is all of the ways your engage with customers and potential customers. It is a strategic function helping you grow your business and monitor your competitors.

Share promotional content one time for every five to six interest-based posts.

On that note, Facebook also provided some insight into changes in their algorithm. Use the following terms with caution, as used excessively will trigger the Facebook machine to squash the content. Avoid using them in blog post titles, headings and URLs. Keep in mind it will always matter how a word or phrase are used but it is an algorithm and machine screening, not a person.

    Can I simply just say what a relief to find an individual who genuinely
    knows what they are discussing on the web.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular because you definitely
    have the gift.
