I am still struggling with this concept and this is the number one -numero uno – reason for being on Facebook – sharing and seeing feeds accurately.
I have noticed that my personal page has up-to-date feeds (as a personal page) but my business, or fan, page (even liking exactly the same pages as my personal page) does not display any of these updates/feeds/
Why? Am still searching for a reason other than Facebook has screwed us over again and is trying to restrict pages and make more money from advertising.
There are vast differences between the way fan pages and personal pages work and since i was forced to convert my personal page into a fan page i have really noticed the difference.
I used to have 100 likes on the very same kind of posts I now struggle to get 1 on – on my fan page. Exactly the same content, the same audience, the only variable is the way the page functions and shares my news with my fans.
For example, I have people who like (and love) my page saying every couple of months “where have you been?”. Well I’ve been busy posting, liking, sharing, updating right here all along. Very frustrating.
Anyone have anything on this? It’s pretty important right?
I also noticed that ‘notifications’ on fan pages don’t refresh and you have to manually refresh your page to see them as opposed to personal pages. Oh AND the notifications are bundled so if 15 people have liked 1 of your posts it only has one notification for that item of news etc. Unlike personal pages.
One little happy tip for those who didn’t know – if you post an image larger than the FB column image size and it crops it, you can actually click edit post and move the image around within the viewable window area.
