Have you noticed that you’ve stopped seeing some of your friends’ posts in your Facebook Newsfeed?
Well, there’s a reason for that…
Facebook’s algorithm is programmed to determine which of your friends’ posts (in the algorithm’s opinion of course) are worthy of landing in your Newsfeed.
It makes that determination based upon which friends you interact with the most by liking, sharing and commenting on their posts and photos.
The problem is, the algorithm’s assumptions about whose posts you’d rather see are often very poor.
It simply assumes that you have no desire to see the posts of friends that you rarely interact with.
While this might be true for some of your friends, you probably have other friends whose posts you want to see even though you rarely choose to interact with them.
Luckily, it’s pretty easy to force the posts of any Facebook friend to start showing up in your Newsfeed again. All you have to do is visit that friend’s Timeline every day and like, share and comment on a few of their posts.
That will “prime the pump” by signalling to Facebook that you really do enjoy seeing that friend’s posts.
After you’ve interacted with their posts a few times they’ll automatically start landing in your Newsfeed again!
And by the way, this tip isn’t limited just to your “friends”. You can also do the same thing for the “Pages” you’ve Liked to ensure that their posts always show up in your Newsfeed as well.
Just remember that if you ever stop interacting with a friend’s (or a page’s) posts on a regular basis, you’ll stop receiving their posts in your Newsfeed again. Just sayin’.
