Facebook Knows What's Good for Us

Posted on the 16 September 2011 by Alizasherman @alizasherman

Just saw this notice in the admin section of one of my Facebook Pages:

Edit Profile (46)

I love how Facebook is so confident they know what is best for us in terms of reaching our fans.

We want you to connect with your fans in the most effective ways possible.

The reason for this change is that our Facebook Messages to fans are going into a section called "Other" instead of being seen by them like actual messages.

So instead, they are encouraging us to just post to our Wall so we (ostensibly) appear in our fans' News Feeds and (ostensibly) they will see those messages.

I've rarely used the Facebook Message feature from a Page anyway as it often seemed like a spammy outreach technique. But good to know Facebook is looking out for us to ensure our messages get to our fans.

Just thought you should know.
