Are Your Facebook Connections Seeing Your Posts?

facebookMany people have been posting the following information on their Facebook walls or inviting people to “Events” to spread the word. Amongst the new Facebook updates is that the newsfeed setting is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people with whom you’ve recently interacted or interacted with the most (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile). So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa – you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!

Have you noticed that you are only seeing updates in your newsfeed from the same people lately? Have you also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links, the same circle of people are commenting and everyone else seems to be ignoring you?

Don’t worry, everyone still loves you and nobody has intentionally blocked you. The problem is that a large chunk of your friend/fan list can’t see anything you post.

Here’s the Fix: On the homepage click the “Most Recent” title on the right of the Newsfeed, then click on the drop down arrow beside it and select “Edit Options,” click on “Show Posts From” and change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages” (you can also access the “Edit Options” link at the very bottom of the facebook homepage on the right) Note: Business pages do not have a newsfeed however page owners should adjust the settings on their personal accounts.

The good news is: now you can now view all of your friends and fans again. The bad news is: You are still invisible to a large portion of your list.

See more details here on how to fix this problem and notify your friends and fans.

You can also tweet about it, create a blog post or send out an email to your subscribers in hopes of reaching them all.

I too was wondering why my wall wasn’t inundated with postings any more. I followed the directions and it made a huge difference. And now I’m blogging about it! Please pass on this information.
