Several readers have written to me to let me know that Kosher on a Budget isn’t showing up in their Facebook feed.
I wish I had insider information on why this is happening with so many blogs, not just KOAB.
I do know that Facebook is changing over to Timeline for fan pages as well as personal pages. As of March 31, all fan pages need to switch over. I’m working on getting a new page designed, but that change will happen for KOAB no later than the end of the month.
As a result of these changes (which no doubt involve a lot of coding and metrics and other things I don’t understand), I anticipate that Facebook will get wonkier still – but hopefully things will smooth out by April or May.
If you want to stay up-to-date with KOAB (and I thank you for that!) despite the Facebook fluctuations, here are some suggestions:
#1. Regularly interact with KOAB on Facebook – “like” status updates (takes less than a second!), comment on posts, share with your friends, ask questions, etc. The more your interact with the KOAB wall, the more Facebook thinks you want to know about KOAB updates, and the more they “push them” to your feed.
# 2. Sort your feed by Most Recent Stories and not Top Stories. Directions on how to do that are HERE.
#3. Take advantage of other ways to stay in touch with KOAB:
- Subscribe to the KOAB newsletter (a once daily compilation of all the posts from the past 24 hours – typically delivered around 4:30 p.m. CST).
- Sign up to get KOAB’s RSS feed delivered to your Google readers (or RSS reader of choice).
- “Follow” KOAB on Twitter.
- Come directly to KosheronaBudget.com and check the most recent posts at your leisure.
I’m sorry that Facebook has been so frustrating for so many of us lately, but I hope that as they get their Timeline changes adopted, everything will settle down and we can get back to the business of saving money!
