I am not one for watching numbers. I don't feverishly watch my Facebook page likes (although I did notice today that it is a nice round number - you can win your very own Stan if you comment here). I don't like all those 'Hike Your Likes' type pages. I want people to find my page and genuinely want to see me in their newsfeed. Most hated comment.....'new like from blah blah, return the like'.....errr NO!!! I won't 'like' a page unless I actually want to see more from that page. I will take the time to visit your page, leave comments and interact with you. If I like your page it means I actually do...well okay there are a couple of exceptions where I ;
A: feel obliged to like you for some reason
B: need to for 'networking' purposes...boring but necessary
C: need to keep tabs on people......
Don't act so surprised, everyone has a fb 'friend' that fits in to these boxes.
Anyway, I've gone off on a tangent. Numbers is where I was. Occasionally I have a look to see how many people read my blog posts. What is more popular? What do you guys want to read about? For example, more of you wanted to read about Vintage Books than Meet Betty.
That's good, I can work with that. BUT when it comes to good ol' Facebook...well......what can I say....
An average post reaches maybe a third, sometimes more, of my fans/likes. A post like this for example-
or even this - two thirds saw this.
But nearly FOUR times as many people viewed this!!! That's way more than my total fans/likes!!
REALLY? Is this what you guys want to see?
Might need to rethink my creative business.
Good night folks
