Conceptual Facebook Algorithm

The Facebook algorithm change: how to make it work for you

Back in January, Facebook announced an algorithm change which, in the words of the site’s founder Mark Zuckerberg, was designed to “bring people closer together and build relationships”. No more news feeds dominated by professionally made content from brands, corporates and the media. Instead, posts from friends and family would take priority, leaving those that prompted passive interactions only – likes and shares, for example, but little else – trailing at the bottom of the Facebook news feed pile.

Over two months later, and how has Facebook’s algorithm change affected the way we post online? What should we be concentrating on and, most importantly, how can we adapt our social media strategies to ensure our Facebook posts are still being seen by our relevant target audience? Read on for our top five tips on how to make Facebook’s new algorithm work for you…

Whether you’re signing up whilst simultaneously reading this post or you already have an account and are planning to boost your activity, sharing posts on Instagram is the way forward. But how?

Binary code with European Union flag - GDPR Concept

The GDPR – Some Early Questions Answered

What is the GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Protection Data Regulation and is a new EU regulation aimed at strengthening data protection for EU citizens and residents within the EU and the rest of the world. The idea is that (unlike the current directive) the GDPR will amount to one single set of rules across Europe, something which EU policy makers believe will make it simpler – and cheaper – for organisations to do business across the EU.
