Facebook’s Feed Now Punishes Pages That Ask For Likes Or Share Reruns. Share unique, interesting content and you’ll be fine! Thanks for keeping it real Facebook!

You’re not clever enough to fool Facebook. Asking users to “Like this post!”, sharing the same link or photo over and over, or bait-and-switching people with links to ad-filled sites will now get your Page’s reach in News Feed destroyed, the company said today. Share unique, interesting content and you’ll be fine.

Last week I wrote a deep guide to why Facebook’s Page reach is naturally declining and how News Feed works. The truth is that there are more and more Pages and friends competing for the finite amount of time people spend reading the feed. Increasing competition plus limited attention equals decreasing reach.

WordPress WebsitesMatt Mullenweg is the creator of WordPress - and a pretty smart guy! "The best marketers in the world don’t fit our preconceptions of what that word means because they’re in hoodies instead of suits and create environments and ecosystems rather than the traditional trappings of marketing.

Another great idea from Social Identities... I had a theory that the reach on Instagram shares to a Facebook Page would be higher than updates with an image posted directly on Facebook, so I tested it a few times with both images and a video. In every case the reach was through the roof and actually higher than my text posts. If you'd like to try this on your Page, it's really quite simple and hopefully it will work as well for you as it has for me.
