How do I actually get what I want in my Facebook news feed?

In my spare time I’m involved regularly with a choir which occasionally puts on concerts and occasionally with a theatre group which regularly puts on shows. I’ve encouraged all my friends to follow their Facebook pages to get updates about what’s on, but still they miss new shows. Unless they have taken very specific steps to ensure they see updates, Facebook just seems to filter them out. Here’s what to do.

When you like a page you will see these options.

Make sure Facebook delivers what you want to see.

Check that posts in News feed is set either to default or “See first”, if it’s a page that is really important to you, and that Notifications is set to see all the kinds of posts you want.

Make Facebook show you what you want to see.

Clicking either option brings up another menu like the one below which allows you to choose what you want to see.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember – if you’re using Facebook to promote goods, services or events, if you don’t want to spend money on advertising, you must get your followers to take these steps.
