New June Facebook Algorithm Ranking Groups & Live Page Update!

Last Update: June 03, 2019

Dear fans and readers,

Facebook has announced a new algorithm update for groups and live pages people are most interested in. It will imporant that you look up how your own group(s) are doing as well to keep your live page alive on a regular base.

Facebook is looking up how long someone is member in a group and for how long they are following your page. I tall adds to the score you will have according to the new algorithm update.

Who of you is using groups and for what purpose?

Do you think groups are a great way to interact with your audience or would you say a live page is sufficient, where you post regularly your latest news and updates to new blog articles on your website?

I do think groups are helpful, especially if they are in your niche. I belong to several FB groups for that reason.

I like to use the group pages Stefan. It seems to have less advertising garbage to wade through compared to a standard Facebook page.
I have not tried the live page, not saying I wouldn't in the future.
I have a group page for each of my websites along with a group page for my church. I haven't tracked the numbers yet as I have been focused on adding to my primary website to build trust and gain audience.
I always wonder about Facebook as they are constantly evolving and some changes only confuse those who use it. But for now it is worth investing in sharing and drawing traffic, at least from my viewpoint.
Thanks for sharing
Ray

Facebook has on purpose made it harder for people to find your posts on your timeline and on pages we manage just so they can get our money to "boost" our posts.

I will NOT reward a company that works in that manner.

Stefan, I know they needed to monetize the site. If they left it the way it was, I'd be happy to pay to build on that, but instead they go backwards and act like they are doing us a favor by having to pay for what we already had before.

It will be interesting to see where Facebook is 5 years from now.

One thing is certain. The online business world is always changing.

Facebook keeps tinkering with their interface and algorithms. It becomes exhausting and non-productive to try to figure out what they are doing next.

If they keep it up, advertisers and the huge audience will find other places to hang out.

Exactly, I do that already, now I will not close my accounts, but I minimize my time spend there, just for updating when I got news and that's it. There are far out better alternatives.

See my previous post of today, that one has no algorithms and my posts are showed to a big audience, I can see my view count and after one week of use, I am happy I joined.

I joined groups to share my posts in my page. It helps to increase my website visitors. However, just weeks ago I noticed that facebook is not showing my posts to many as compared before. I can tell it to the number of reach. It keeps me messaging to boost my posts which requires you to pay.

Yes that is Facebooks and now also Instagrams new policy, you want to be seen, you pay. I call it money grabbing, but hey that is how they decide to do business. Both platforms are great, but with this new policy it will get less and less interesting for those who just start up or do not have that kind of niche to make money on the spot by buying advertisement from those platforms.

Time will tell what will happen, but it could backfire on them, because if people are leaving to join alternatives, then those who helped them to get that big in the first place will be all gone.

I don't see any profit coming out of it to advertise with them for now, we better invest in a good website and content.

For the big businesses out there, or local businesses it can make sense to invest in advertising, but for all others probably not.

Yes. There is not much profit to investing in their ads. So I do not buy their new policy. Anyway, majority of my website visitors come from organic traffic. I just need to optimize my posts.
