Most of the time when I post, people do not react by liking or commenting. I can see how many people saw the post, but no response. This is everywhere, at every social media site. Very few people react, if at all. Ask a question or for opinions, same thing.  So he said posts like this will not be shown as much, posts that don’t draw a huge response.

If you post a lot, he gave example of someone posting 30 times per day, like people using schedulers, your posts will get less exposure. I’d already heard of FB hiding posts and blanking out the images in posts. I’d seen it done too. Apparently, they will be doing it more now.

Seems that our business pages posts may be seen even less now. I don't understand why they created the business pages, then virtually forced members who are sellers to launch them and post there, only to demote them now in the news feeds. It seems now that it will be even MORE useless to post and upkeep these pages.

Trendy content that elicits a lot of response will take more precedence in the news feeds, over slow content, or content that would only be interesting to a small audience. I post on my business page to share my listings. If that is not swift enough for them, then I guess I won’t be wasting my time there if my business pages posts will be automatically pushed to the bottom of the news feed.


I never cared much for FBook anyway. Pages too junky and crammed with stuff, among other things. I'll keep my account for times when I need to interact with a company or event via FB, because that's why I came back anyway, but I'm glad to know that I don't have to waste my time trying to promote there anymore.

I very seldom get a response onto my sites from FB. I do see views from Pinterest. I really only use FB to contact friends but I have a page there, Martique de Montreal. I never spend money to boost or buy ads on FB because I don't feel it would serve me.

Some do well there, but one seller I heard about clicked one of those links where FB is always encouraging you to boost your posts or advertise. She was shocked when she received a huge bill. I think she thought she was signing on to pay something, but not that. It is up to us to understand all of the facts about what we are signing onto, of course, but I do find those invasive suggestions by FB to be misleading.

Have you changed your FBook habits since they stopped pushing business page posts to the top of feeds? What are you doing now at FBook?

Hi Sandi. 
I looked at "The Creative Seller Website" that you mention above. This place is a nice find. Lots of good information. I'll be back to explore it more. Me, I'll stay on Facebook as long as it is free. No promos, just sharing pictures and keeping up to date with friends and family.

Thank you for your support! My website is still being tweaked and improved. I guess that will always be so, but more so now, as I haven't had much time to devote to it. I do post regularly, just sporadically.

Want to redesign the "homepage", which is a static blog homepage used for the site. In other words, my website is a Blogger blog that is being used as a website, where the main page is Home, and the blog page is Blog. I bought a domain name for it, so the address does not show Blogger in it. That's why it's thecreativeseller.com rather than thecreativeseller.blogspot.com.

I'm building it up to have even more resources.

I have a separate FBook acct for keeping up with family. My crafting acct though has been a disappointment throughout the years.

I had a FB page for me etsy account but killed it recently. Only my friends/followers ever seemed to see it and I had tried the ads once with no real results so it just seemed useless. Ways for the ultra small business to get seen are vanishing fast.

Agreed! As far as I'm concerned, continuing to devote precious time and effort on all of the major social media sites, because of tradition or not identifying other avenues of marketing, is like beating a dead horse. What is working for sellers of manufactured products, designer and boutique brand fashion and accessories, and other trendy merchandise is working less everyday for handcrafters.
