Apologies if you find you have an 'Unlike' on your FB page, as we have changed the admin on our page. You will be 'Liked' again by our new admin. Smile

I lose 'Likes' sometimes but can never work out who has unliked

I didn't realise changing admin would mean you got unliked

I seem to be stuck in a rut, I get 3 or 4 new likes then I lose some, I can't work out how or why Shocked

The fall in the number of page likes isn't necessarily because somebody has actually unliked your page, if a page follower doesn't like/react to or comment on a post on your page for a certain length of time (I think it's six months), they will automatically be removed from your list of likes.

Your facebook posts are initially shown on the newsfeed of approx. 6% of your followers, if there is little or no response it won't go any further, so it's possible that some of your followers won't see a post from your page for six months unless they actively seek out your page.

How depressing that only 6% of your likers get your posts! Sad Aaargh! It makes me feel that there's not much point. I've only got 30+ likes since Aug '16. I am not a FB natural and I don't find it easy. I didn't even have my own personal profile, as I never felt the need.

Which brings me to the admin issue. Our page was set up from Admin A, who has a personal page but who didn't want to do the FB page posts, so I had to hijack his profile to post on the page. We joined a FB group, which means that we spammed all his friends with our posts. The only solution I could find was to have a new admin, Admin B - me, which meant I had to have my own personal profile and be a friend to Admin A. I deliberately have only 1 friend, Admin A, so I can't spam my friends. We then discovered, of course, that Admin B has to like all the existing liked pages as a personal profile to get the posts and Admin A needs to unlike them. Phew!

My daughter suggested Twitter instead, but I don't know if I can face it.

Posts with video rather than photos reach a higher number of newsfeeds, and the 6% is just initially - if they are liked/shared the reach will increase.

I'm not a natural on social media sites either, I really struggle to be honest, but I'm trying as I think it's a great way to let people know what is available to visitors to our area. I think I understand the way facebook works now and I've just started on twitter, not much response there just yet but I have connected with local tourist agencies and we are sharing content so hopefully it will improve.
