Facebook has 5 Changes to Protect its Users

5 Changes on FB.

 

Facebook’s new search tool will give users the ability to filter through old comments and other information from friends and if you find embarassing posts that were shared on other people's page, you can ask Facebook to remove them. 

 

 

Search- Facebok is making it easier to search for posts that have been shared with you. That means if you create great content, people can now refer back to it using the upgraded Facebook Search

Interest targeting helps you make sure your posts reach the right people. With interest targeting, you can target posts to a subset of the people that like your page based on people's likes and interests.  

7 Call-to-Action buttons on Pages. Page owners can now select from seven call to action buttons atop their timeline, such as Contact Us, Sign Up, and more, letting you turn your page into a true lead magnet.  

Post End Date- This feature allows you to specify a day and time to stop showing a post in News Feed, helping you make sure out-of-date posts don't appear on the News Feeds of people who like your page. 

 

Settings- Change your settings from Public and Friends of Friends to strictly Friends.

 

Facebook is reducing "Overly Promotional Page Posts" in the News Feed. This is huge, as it will affect what content people will see. That means you'll have to provide good content in your posts if you want them to appear in your followers' News Feeds.

Thanks for Reading my Real Estate Blog......

I still think that the CTA list is really lame. We should be able to customize them to be optimum.

Hi Pamela,

FB seems to be an ever changing site so these new changes will help to detect negativity on the members sites. I say 'Thank You' FB.

Hi Karen,

I wrote it like I figured it out from a lot of technocal jargon. Sometimes I haven't a clue what the techy are talking about Karen Fiddler, Broker/Realtor .

Managing the posts from people you don't know is huge and restricting posts on your page to people you know makes perfect sense to me. Thanks for the updates.

Just got a petition to sign about removing a group on Facebook. Was titled Death to Soldiers. Why does it take a petition to stop something like this? They have to adapt.

Hi Kimo Jarrett,

We have to keep an eye on our sites and it can be scary. I keep my personal FB site to friends and friends of friends but my Realtor page to Public.

Hi Bill Reddington,

OMG this is horrible. I am going to go look and make sure it has been taken down. I am so patriotic and born on a military base and my first 15 years with my dad in the Air Force. The military is important to keep us safe and free.

Hi Jan Green,

 I noticed the other day their are tabs below the long picture (header) and under 'about' shows our personal info. Not sure I like how they changed it.

It is a bit of a treat going back and reading some of Active Rains best archives  like this one. Should be shared again.
