I have stayed on Facebook for a lot longer than I should. The truth is, for a long time, I really enjoyed having it. It was the only way I stayed in touch with a lot of people in my life. Friends who had moved away or just gotten busy. It enabled me to share pictures and stories of my kids we were having with family that I rarely ever saw.
Fact: bloggers like to complain about the infamous Facebook algorithm. I get it. It's frustrating to create content, post it to Facebook and have only a tiny fraction of people who like your page see the post.
I've been blogging for just shy of two years and Facebook has consistently been the number one source of referral traffic to my blog. That means most people who are finding Ripped Jeans and Bifocals find me through something I post on Facebook or something someone else shared from my blog on Facebook.
While the "just-when-you-get-it-right-and-figure-things-out-then-Facebook-changes-again" is frustrating, here are 11 things that have helped me with Facebook reach and engagement and ultimately, getting eyes on my blog posts.
Earlier this week I took a Facebook quiz to find out my IQ. My results were astounding. I scored higher than Nicholas Tesla, somewhere in the range of 170.
But... I'm a teacher's kid, and I was frequently tested as a child. I know that my IQ is nowhere near 170. I think the quiz was reporting my seventh grade weight.
Now here's the thing. The fact that I took this stupid quiz makes me think my IQ might be half to a third of what Tesla's was. You would guess I would see the irony in this. Taking a Facebook quiz is like filling your car with gas, making sure the oil is full, and offering the keys to the guy who just robbed the bank.
Sure, go ahead, take a good look at my personal information. Of course, I'm as smart as Tesla.
