  1. Top Pages are posting a lot more

engagement : hashtagvisual or hashtagvideo? hashtagdata tells all… “Interestingly enough, we found that images (not video) regularly receive the most engagement. However, consistent with the data above, average engagement per image dropped from 9,370 per post in Q1 2017 to just 3,454 per post in Q2 2018. Respectively, average engagement per video fell from 5,486 to 2,867. Here’s a quick chart to show the differences between types of content.”

“But with organic reach nearly nonexistent on Facebook, why are pages posting more?

Jason Beckerman, CEO of social advertising platform Unified, said Facebook is “really a pay-to-play ecosystem now,” adding, “The days of seeing significant engagement from organic are pretty much over. Truthfully, all companies should be exploring paid social advertising—and they don’t need to have huge budgets, either. Depending on their goal, they can see huge return on investment with the right targeting, creative, audience targeting and strong campaign management capability.”

Good read on #facebook #groups, why these can be of value for your brand: “If your brand starts a Facebook group, think of yourself as a facilitator rather than a marketer or blogger. You’ll lose the group if you only promote your own work. Based on the groups I’ve been a part of, though, the group owners seem to hit a sweet spot when 70 percent of the posts come from directly the members.” 

 

Algorithm changes

How to handle the changes in algorithms and what it means for your content

1. What’s going to go viral, will go viral: focus on creating high-quality content
2. Understand the full picture of personal sharing. Like we mentioned, only a fraction of shares will come from your Facebook Page. You need to understand the full scope of who is sharing your content, and when and where
3. Diversify. Other platforms are becoming ideal for distribution, like LinkedIn and messaging apps
4. Cultivate a community. Whether it’s through Facebook Groups, your social accounts, or online, and offline, you want your audience to both trust your content and come to you as part of their daily routine, rather than passively
5. Start a conversation. When we spoke to ATTN:’s co-founder, Matthew Segal, he told us, “We try to approach through a conversational viewpoint. We obsess over giving context to issues as opposed to just summarizing ‘here’s what happened today’, or giving a partisan viewpoint. What does this mean for you, why should you care, and how can we make this as entertaining as possible?”
6. Find the emotional threads. Social is inherently emotional. Find the stories that provoke strong feelings in your audience, and tease out those super-charged moments on social

Inside Facebook

Nice, long long read on intern politics, data, privacy, algorithms and more from inside Facebook

“Tech companies, for the most part, prefer to have as little as possible done by humans—because, it’s often said, they don’t scale. You can’t hire a billion of them, and they prove meddlesome in ways that algorithms don’t. They need bathroom breaks and health insurance, and the most annoying of them sometimes talk to the press.”

Facebook next Netflix?

“the happier and more positive people feel about using Facebook, the more they’ll return to the platform. The more content they’ll consume and share. The more video and live broadcasts they’ll watch. The more they won’t mind being shown ads!! 😉 And, eventually, Facebook will win more exclusive streaming rights for major events, just like they’ve done for some sporting events, and the recent Golden Globes red carpet pre-party. (Keep in mind Facebook bid $610M for the Indian Premier Cricket League and lost out to a $2.5Bn bid!). Super Bowl on Watch one day, anyone?! 🏈”

📢 Three weeks into 2018 and we have three major Facebook announcements… what does it all mean? Check out my ❼ points…

Facebook face recognition

#Facebook, #privacy and #face #recognition, #not-me: Now, if you’re in a photo and are part of the audience for that post, we’ll notify you, even if you haven’t been tagged. You’re in control of your image on Facebook and can make choices such as whether to tag yourself, leave yourself untagged, or reach out to the person who posted the photo if you have concerns about it. We always respect the privacy setting people select when posting a photo on Facebook (whether that’s friends, public or a custom audience), so you won’t receive a notification if you’re not in the audience.
