  12. 12. Facebook’s Edgerank Algorithm Reach Engagement What it means for you What actions to take Promoted Postswww.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
  13. 13. Facebook: Falling Reach September – the autumn of discontent Many companies see a reduction in reach Up to 40% in some cases (see below) Facebook Monetization - 80/20 News feed saturation demands action “These changes are geared towards increasing engagement with content within individuals’ newsfeeds and likely won’t impact anything you need to create, but will definitely impact your metrics. We are optimizing the algorithm so that fans see what’s most relevant for them and most likely to compel them to take an action.” – Facebook, 9/18/2012 Via TechCrunch.com – 11/16/12 – based on 41,000+ postswww.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
  14. 14. Facebook: Press Conference Notes (Notes from Will Cathcart, FB Product Manager – 11/19/12) Newsfeed Algorithm Criteria Prior Relevance (Affinity) Previous interaction implies relevance Follower post preference (Affinity) Previous reaction to post types (text, video, etc) garner relevance Crowdsourcing (Weight) Amount of people’s reaction (positive or negative) to posts increase/decrease reach Time Decay Time passed since posting Spam reports “we started penalizing things that had an above average rate of complaints, and rewarding things that had a below average rate of complaints …engagement went up and complaints went down in the double-digit percentage.”www.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
  15. 15. Facebook: Engagement Engagement steady (below), rising (right) Less reach and more engagement suggests increase in relevance Rewards brands who are relevant “Separates the wheat from the chaff” Punishes brands who are notVia TechCrunch.com – 11/16/12 – based on 41,000+ posts www.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
  16. 16. Facebook: Ineffective Content Spam reports greatly affect potential reach Photos tend to attract more spam, as well as more engagement They take more space on a newsfeed, thus garner a stronger reaction either way (affinity) All of this suggests accurate rumors of a Pagerank score to track negative feedbackwww.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
  17. 17. Facebook: Promoted Posts Promoted posts are a way to guarantee significant reach for a price Price: usually $5-12 (but can be $50+) Posts have a sharp 3-day “reach curve” Useful for advancer promotions or other non-date specific purpose Effective for announcements and “PR Material” Should be a consideration in any FB strategywww.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
  18. 18. Facebook: What this means (The opinion of one community manager) Facebook creating more efficient Feed Penalizing poor online brands Rewarding good ones Allowing extended reach at a price Companies will pay to reach their less interested followers Poor marketers will pay to reach anyone at all Examples show text-only posts offer 50% more reach Reach or Engagement? Quality should win over Quantitywww.astekweb.com © 2012 Astek Consulting LLC
