After soliciting the assistance of a Face Book friend and Small Group member, we discovered that things were not showing up on our news feeds. Face Book has changed a lot of things (see ‘List Pictures’) and may not have notified their users of such changes. New things have appeared on the site and you may not be aware
If you’ve been feeling a little insecure, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Things that you post may not be getting out there to your friends and family members, but make sure you check before you start rolling your eyes at people or avoiding them altogether.
First, make sure that your ‘settings’ are turned on so that at least your friends/family can see your stuff. How you decide to control your settings is totally up to you. You may not want the world to see your page. You will need to be specific and tag each one of your friends as you desire. My philosophy is, “If you don’t speak to me in public, or interact with me on social media – why would you want to be my friend?”
A “Like” on a post or comment is an acknowledgment that someone has read your post and agree with your thoughts. Sometimes a ‘like’ is not appropriate, yet you could leave a comment or not say anything at all if you don’t agree or understand.
If you post something that a person doesn’t desire to read, or that may not interest them – then they may not want to get “notifications” from your page. They may choose to make comments to your posts from their news feed. Don’t get your feelings hurt. Guns, sports, videos, witty sayings, pass-it-ons or girly-girl things may not interest them.
Social media is very helpful, informative and keeps people in-the-loop of what’s happening in your life and theirs. If you aren’t hearing from people, check in on them and see if they are OK. Ask around and see if your ‘posts’ are getting viewed. Chances are, you may have to do some adjusting, nonetheless – check and see. Hope this information has been helpful.
