I’ve had a blog Facebook page for quite a while now, but have done a horrible job managing it. It didn’t even occur to me that posts weren’t properly synching to the blog’s Facebook page for a couple of months, even though they were showing up correctly on my end.
So at least I’ve worked out those kinks, and posts should once again be displaying correctly.
Ultimately the goal with the blog’s Facebook page isn’t to get as many people to “like” the page just for the sake of liking it, but to figure out how I can add more value there.
I know a lot of people subscribe to the blog via email and aren’t active on Twitter and don’t use RSS feeds, and I think there’s a lot of value to being able to get posts “live” instead of only once per day. That’s because some of the best deals don’t last very long, so seeing those “live” can be the difference between getting in on them and not.
I’ve tried to make the Facebook page a bit prettier, but am curious what information you guys would find more useful there, because I’ve heard people go both ways.
Would the most value from the blog’s Facebook page come from:
- Keeping it fairly uncluttered and just synching all posts there so that they can easily be read?
- Actually interacting beyond that, be it answering questions, sharing travel tricks, funny cat videos, discounts for laundry detergent, etc? 😉
I’m open to either, but would appreciate some feedback on what you guys would find most useful. In the meantime I will of course continue to sync posts there, and will also start sharing “micro” deals and tricks there that don’t quite warrant a blog post, but are worth mentioning nonetheless.
So if you’d like to “Like” the blog’s Facebook page, I’d sure like that! 😉
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
