I’ve been curating some really inspiring and uplifting content lately and sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, and my various websites. With 797 ‘friends’ on Facebook, and thousands of ‘followers’ elsewhere, my content should reach thousands of people. Yet lately I’ve only been getting a few ‘likes’ per post, and often more likes than actual visits to an article.
I’m curious to know why. Is Facebook no longer an effective way to reach people? Is the content not interesting to people? Are people just overwhelmed with information overload or spending less time on social media? Are social media ‘friends’ and ‘followers’ superficial connections that don’t result in meaningful connections and responses?
I’m going to continue focusing on positive and uplifting content, and mostly share it on my ResourcesForLife.com website, but as I do, I’d like to know how best to share it.
I’m conducting this survey as a test to find out if Facebook continues to be a good way to reach people. I’ll share the results after a week of responses. Choose all responses that you feel are applicable. Thanks!
Early Survey Results
- 20 Feb 2017 @ 6:18 PM. For a point of reference, this is when the survey was posted.
- 21 Feb 2017 @ 8:07 AM. So far, out of 797 friends there has been one like on Facebook for the post that announced this survey. On another Facebook page where I put the post, there are 17,000 followers and about 1,200 saw the post. There are no likes so far, but one nice comment.
