I hope you all had a great weekend. I know this isn’t really a relevant topic but I felt the issue deserved a post of it’s own, especially given NHM’s 1st birthday last week.
I spend an awful lot of time putting posts together for NHM and trying to publicise them to the local parent community. Several other people also spend a lot of time putting posts together via Guest Post Wednesday and as Guest Bloggers. I like to think that we all add a little bit of value in our efforts to make your life a little bit easier. As you know, I don’t make any money from what I do at NHM, I run the blog as a hobby and it’s my opportunity to give a little bit back.
Many readers of NHM access the posts through the NHM Facebook Page. Facebook has now changed the terms and conditions for FB Pages. They now expect all Page owners to PAY to publicise their posts and status updates to people who have “Liked” their page. I am very disappointed in Facebook, but not surprised.
If you access the NHM posts via the FB Page, I urge you to hover over the “Like” button on the page and make sure there is a tick next to “Show in newsfeed”. If you don’t do this (and because I will not pay to publicise my posts) NHM status updates will only show up in the newsfeed of 10% of total number of “Likers”.
If there are any other Pages that you want to keep being informed of, it’s probably best to do the same on each of these.
If you are a NHM FB Page “Liker” I would be very grateful if you could go in and check whether NHM “shows in your news feed”. Thank you very much.
However, If you don’t have the time or energy to do this and you would like to still see the NHM posts, the best way to see the posts is to subscribe in the email address in the wordpress site HERE.
Thank you very much for your time and all of your support. Normal service will resume tomorrow. Hope you have a great weekend!
