Facebook: the case of the disappearing "Liked" pages
One of my favorite features of Facebook (besides Banagrams) is the ability to create and Business Pages. With the click of a large "Like" button you can follow the delightful tidbits from any business you want! Lately, however, not all has been hunky-dory in Facebook Newsfeed land. Just because you "like" a page doesn't necessarily mean you're seeing the updates from them thanks to unannounced changes made by Facebook last spring in order to bring more revenue for their new shareholders. Basically, Facebook now limits what people can see in order to push pages to have to pay to promote their own content.
Fortunately, there is a quick and easy way to make all of the lovely content from your favorite pages visible. Here's how:
Start by going to one of the pages whose content you like to view. Click on the little cog symbol beside the "Liked" button.
Next, click "Add to Interest Lists..." (don't worry if you don't have any Interest Lists or even know what those are... all will be revealed shortly).
If you haven't yet created any Interest Lists here's where you can do that by clicking "+ New List" which will bring up the window pictured below in the top image:
Click "Next" and then select which option you prefer from the privacy list that appears and name your list!
Once you've created your list, you might want to add more pages to it. Simply go to another page you like and click the little cog icon again like so:
Viewing your list is easy-peasy-lemon-sqeezy. Simply click the name of your list in the left hand column on your facebook homepage like so and bing! there are the updates from the pages you've been missing.
Whew! Now you can see all of the pages you like once again like facebook.com/SarahLambertCook!
