~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Facebook is currently testing a potential new feature that I am pretty excited about. It is called "Keyword Snoozing" and will allow you to hide content with specific keywords for up to 30 days from your personal feeds. Just think about the type of content you grow weary of (for me it is political "stuff") that you can effectively zap and not see for a month. I have not seen a timeline for its release yet, but I will definitely be looking. When I know, you can bet I will share that it is available. ;-) 

Did You Know...According to Statista, It took Facebook 5 years (2012 to 2017) to go from 1 to 2 billion active users. That was during the timeframe doomsayer "experts" said the site was on the decline. At what point do you think they will hit 3 billion? ;-) 

Is it time to refresh your Facebook cover photo? I recently did as part of a new branding experiment and the results have been positive. I was actually a little surprised how quickly many local followers noticed and let me know they liked the change. It was another good reminder that consumers are paying attention to what we do online. Go ahead and change yours out and see what kind of responses you get.

PLEASE stop by the 5 Facebook Business Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please take a moment and return the favor.

As always, share, reciprocate, and enjoy Rainers!

It would be nice to put some content on hold forever. It seems that FB is listening and are making needed changes.  Thanks for your update!

I love the idea of being able to "snooze." Wish we could press a snooze button to stop all the spam, too, among other things.

Thanks for the continued education and updates.

Good morning Anita.  I think they will have some difficulty making the 3 billion member mark.  But, it will happen at some time.

Georgie: I heard the same last night from someone in my Mastermind Group. I will be checking it out today.

I am looking forward to at least temporarily not seeing content that does not interest me, Amanda.

I have been "snoozing" friends who post political views, but it will be nice to snooze certain keywords. One thing I do wonder, when will Facebook jump on the real estate bandwagon and become competitors? Do you see that happening in your crystal ball?

You and me both. Thanks for stopping by, Gwen.

That is great news, Mott. Thank you for checking out the 5 pages.

Pat: They are always looking at new ways to monetize and make more $$$. I bet they try.
