Facebook friends: How to see my updates on Facebook

Our Simple Homeschool page on Facebook has nearly 10,000 likes.

Over the past year this page has become a well-visited virtual community–where I ask questions from readers, give links to posts, mention giveaways and other items from the web I think you might be interested in. You also share your thoughts and advice with other readers there, too.

Honestly, that page totally redeemed my faith in social media (of which I have only a little!).

Recently, however, Facebook has changed–they are not consistently showing status updates in your feed merely because you “like” a page.

If blog or business owners pay to promote a post, then FB show it to more people. But for those of bloggers not rolling around in piles of money to do this often, it often seems that up to 95% of readers who have liked the page may not see my updates.

Kind of disheartening!

Thankfully there is a way that you can easily continue hearing from me on Facebook. Take a look at the screen shot below and you’ll see what to do:

Visit the Simple Homeschool Facebook page and hover your mouse over the LIKED button. Then click “Get Notifications” in the drop-down menu.

This way you know for sure that you won’t miss a thing–(Not that I’m suggesting these are life-or-death updates, you know, but it’s handy to get the information you’re interested in, right?! ;))

Head here to update your settings on our Facebook page now! I’ll look forward to chatting with you there soon.
