Silhouette School Readers: Facebook Doesn't Want You to See This!

I bet you didn't know Silhouette School posts to Facebook every three hours from 7 am EST to 10pm EST  Yup.  I bet you didn't know because Facebook is most likely not showing you any, if not all, of Silhouette School's posts.

How do I know this? Well let's just say 55,000 people have 'liked' the Silhouette School FB page yet this is how many people FB is serving individual posts to....not good!

Certain posts that lots of people 'like' - like those adorable Silhouette blade cookies - will get 'served' to even more people...but on average only a small fraction of you are seeing 99% of Silhouette School's post.

It's a sad thing especially when you voluntarily signed up to follow Silhouette School on Facebook Why, then, should Mr. Zuckerberg and his crew decide when or even if you get to see what we're sharing on the 'Book?!  

So why does Facebook do this? Well, they want small business owners and bloggers, like myself, to click that 'boost' button and pay for ads on Facebook...the problem is those ads get served to people who may or may not be interested in Silhouette tutorials, tips, tricks, troubleshooting or projects at all! Basically it's throwing marketing money out the window - when all of the 55,000 loyal FB followers actually want to see what Silhouette School has to share, but can't!  

Lucky for you, I'm going to school you on how to beat Facebook's crazy algorithm so you can see more of Silhouette School's awesomeness in your feed.  There are several options and you can do one or both! I recommend both, of course!

First of all go to  Make sure you've 'Liked' the page.  IF IT ALREADY SAYS 'LIKED' DO NOT CLICK AGAIN or you will actually 'unlike' the page. 

Click the down arrow next to 'Liked' and you should see something like this.

Click "Posts in News Feed."

If you'd like the most recent Silhouette School posts to be at the top of your news feed when you open up Facebook, chose "See First". Do NOT click DONE yet!

On the left of that same window, click "Notifications".  Check 'All Posts" or whatever types of Silhouette School posts you'd like to be notified about.

Now click 'Done.'

Now go back to the 'LIKED' button and click the down arrow again to double check that your selections were saved. They should look like this now...

If you start to notice you are seeing fewer Silhouette School posts again, I promise you it's not because I closed up shop or am no longer on Facebook - it's because Facebook is up to its old tricks and reset your settings.  In that case, check your 'Liked' selections again and re-save if necessary.
