Occasionally. If I had a community page I would do it all the time (I have seen several of those 365 things to do in Podunk pages where they provide something new each day). They tend to get a lot of activity if well promoted.

We used to do this all the time, but since Facebook redid how the feed reads, it is hard to find the information. The pages feed shows what Facebook thinks I find important rather than what I find important.

I also started a facebook group to post a variety of local topics ( obituaries, history, places to hike, etc)

If it's a community base page I'd be limiting my 'business posts' for the most part.  Just my two cents!!

I am trying to build my sphere by starting a community based page.  I have some local businesses that post discounts, events and contests to help with local content.  I also use this page to feature properties that are in the same geographical area.  How often should I be posting community information vs business.  It is currently about 85% community 15% business.  

If you want to check out my community Facebook page you can click here

Thanks!
