posts? earlier days wasn’t so difficult, when i first started a new page last year I did a photo(manipulation) that went into several magazines fb pages, it was the 5th picture I shared, with maybe 150 likes on my page at first.
I was shared 1843 times, liked 4152 times and commented on more than 700 timesbut it was like day one 50 likes, week 2, 500, week 4 1500, week 10 3000 was alive forever, even recently i spotted it in an albanian/german site, just shared, but not from my page.
good stuff can stay alive forever, i think commenting helps, sharing as well, especially once you hit a certain social group where more than 1 person of that circle shares, facebook will give it more relevance, just like the google PR cred tweak ages ago.
the more relevant to you (I’m sure they scan words and not just the word count) the more facebook will show it, and the longer unless you have put it up as most recent.
I think the same goes with pages you like, sharing or commenting on the same content, even liking.
Though with less authority than your friends.
People you subscribe too, your “best” friends should also have more authority over aquantancies.
I’m a freak theorist, but I think they also look at which groups you look most and build that into what you see to keep you on the site longer.
exposure and frequency, say you like and comment more on co workers, (maybe also times related) then maybe what your coworkers like and comment on have more authority etc.
maybe sounds a little far fetched.
facebook has so much data they can use to keep you on the site, clicking them ads. i just know if it was me I would track (they track) and make use of all of it.
