Facebook Fraud?

Buying Likes For Facebook Fanpages

Does it make sense?

Do you have a facebook fanpage/page and wondered why you got so little engement even though you have several hundred likers?

This video explains why and you might start considering closing your fan pages or at least stop paying for ads and stop boosting posts after watching this:

Buying ads and courses

I had bought a course for over $300 and learned that you have to post at least 2 times a day in order for your posts to get more visibility.

And I have been diligently posting at least 2 times a day, mostly more often. I use IFTTT with Feedly and Buffer. That way I have a good and interesting mix of content, and not just mine.

Xarah’s Empower Fanpage

As you can see I have 256 likes so fare. I never paid for likes. I did boost a couple of posts.

One of the more recent posts has reached 7 people. But I liked it myself (not as a page) and from another page of mine. 7 people! The same with another one.

But then, other posts where I did the same don’t even show it reached anybody.

Mostly I reach 1-3 people.

No Likes.

No Comments.

It’s frustrating.

Fanpage #2

This one has 109 likes and also, no engagement.

2-7 people reached.

I am considering now to close both pages. Why should I keep spending time sharing content if nobody cares?

Instead spending more time on my other fanpage which does get engagement.

And it’s more fun, too. So I am considering closing them, too. Not sure yet.

How to get more Engagement

BTW, if you go to the fanpage the guy in the video created just as a test, the virtual cat one, now he gets engagement! Likes, comments, shares. Wow!

What can we learn from this?

Let me know, either in the comment box below or find me on Facebook.

from Xarah with Love

    Yes I can well relate to what you are talking about the facebook issue that is one of the main reasons I’ve pretty much don’t even bother messing around with it any more nor with the so called fanpage.
