Do you use Facebook advertising?
Do you want to control the times when your ads run?
Facebook recently introduced an ad scheduling feature to let users choose what times of each day their ads run.
In this post we’ll explore what ad scheduling is, where to find it and how to use it.
About Ad Scheduling
In the past you’ve been able to specify the starting and ending dates and times for Facebook ads, but you couldn’t schedule specific times of the day to run your ads.
Do you need ideas to reach your local Facebook audience?
If you’re a small business you need to localize your marketing efforts to reach your real customers.
In this article I’ll share 10 ways you can encourage your local community to find and like you on Facebook.
Why Local Facebook Fans?
If you’re a local small business, you’re likely most interested in customers in your area, not those scattered around the country or globe. While Facebook provides ample opportunity to increase brand awareness and visibility, it can reach beyond your targeted audience, costing you time and money.
When you focus your Facebook marketing efforts on your local community, you become more visible to the people you want to reach. Your interactions with your community as a whole and how you bring that relationship to Facebook establish your business as reliable, trustworthy and influential.
Do you know whether Facebook post frequency or content has a bigger impact on engagement?
Here at Social Media Examiner, we did some testing, and dug into our Facebook metrics.
What we found are some very interesting things about Facebook reach, posting frequency and what matters most to get the engagement you want.
In this article I’ll share what we tested and how you can find your own data and determine what works best for your own audience.
What Should Your Facebook Post Frequency Be?
Facebook has changed the news feed algorithm, that’s for sure–everyone is talking about a decline in reach. Since fewer of your fans may be seeing your posts, what worked in the past may not work now.
Have you downloaded the newest Facebook Pages app?
The most recent update to the Facebook Pages app lets you quickly see important data about your Facebook page.
In this article you’ll discover how eight updates to the Facebook Pages app make managing your page on the go a lot easier.
Why Install the Facebook Pages App?
While you can use the traditional Facebook app to keep up with the pages you manage, it’s not nearly as efficient as the Facebook Pages app. The basic Facebook app is meant to let you keep tabs on friend and social updates—it doesn’t really offer a lot of options for managing your page.
Are you looking for ways to find that saved content?
Depending on the type of device you’re using, Facebook save can be time-consuming or frustrating.
In this article I’ll share four easy ways you can use the Facebook Save button for saving articles you’re interested in reading later.
Avoid the Hassle of Missing Content With the Facebook Save Button
Your Facebook connections and favorite pages offer some really great content–but you don’t always have time to read it so you want to save it for later. If you’re like most people, you haven’t found an easy or efficient way to do that.
Do you use Facebook giveaways and contests to collect information about your fans?
Action-gated Facebook campaigns require users to share specific data or feedback before they can enter a giveaway or contest.
In this article I’ll show you the concept of action-gating and how three companies are using it effectively to meet their goals.

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.
Do you know where to find everything?
Earlier this year, Facebook announced a new design for Facebook Pages. It took a while to roll out, but most Page admins had it by June.
