Got Fake Facebook Fans? How to Protect Your Facebook Page


social media how to Do you have fake fans on your Page?

Do you know how to tell?

In February, Facebook announced that it had 1.23 billion monthly active users and up to 11.2% of those users are fake.

In this article I’ll tell you how to spot fake Facebook fans and what to do about them.

Fake Fans Hurt Engagement

Facebook has been actively trying to get rid of spam and phony profiles since early 2012, but like weeds, they keep coming back.

When Facebook detects spammy comments on your Page or likes from fake Facebook accounts (whether purchased or not), they remove your Page updates from the news feed. You end up losing a significant part (if not all) of your reach and engagement.

In mid-2013 and early 2014, Facebook made big changes to their news feed algorithm in an attempt to filter out spammy and poor-quality content. Pages that provide the most relevant content and have high true engagement have the best chance of appearing prominently in the news feed.

How to Use the Facebook Pages to Watch to Track Competitors


social media how toDo you know what your competitors are doing on Facebook?

Have you used the Facebook Pages to Watch feature?

Comparing what other Pages are doing on Facebook can give you useful information on current trends.

In this article you’ll discover how to track what’s working for other pages and adapt your own Facebook tactics accordingly.

Why Pages to Watch

The Pages to Watch feature in Facebook Insights allows you to watch other Facebook pages so you can compare their activity, engagement and audience growth to your own.

Pages to Watch is particularly handy if you want to see what’s working for your competitors or similar niche pages. You can see exactly what content they’re posting, how often they’re posting and when they’re posting—and the resulting engagement. Armed with that information, you can tailor your own updates accordingly.

You can watch any brand page on Facebook you want—you don’t even have to like the page. If you have 100 to 10,000 fans, you can create a list of up to 100 pages to watch.

Most page admins won’t need to watch that many pages, but it’s nice to have one place to keep track of your top competitors or brands that inspire you.

How to Set Up Pages to Watch

To find the Pages to Watch feature, go Insights and click on Overview. Scroll down the page to the Add Pages section (it’s just below the Your 5 Most Recent Posts box).

How Big Brands Keep Their Social Media Audiences Engaged


social media how toLooking for ideas to spark conversation with your fans?

Want them to pay attention to your updates?

Big brands know how to engage people on a regular basis.

In this article I’ll show you five ways nationally known companies keep their audiences coming back for more and how you can too.

#1: Host a Video Contest

For the last seven years, Doritos has run its “Crash the Super Bowl” contest asking customers to create commercials for its crunchy treats. The incentive that really caught attention? The winner gets his or her commercial aired during the Super Bowl.

The response is huge. Hundreds of commercials are submitted. The company narrows it down to a pool of five, and then asks everyone to vote for their favorite.

The result is a viral campaign driven by finalists sharing their entry with friends and encouraging them to vote, as well as customers and fans who want to see the best videos (which are usually the funniest).

In 2013, Doritos brought the video contest to Facebook (they had previously used a microsite) and went beyond the success of all previous years.
