  • Affinity score: clicking, liking, commenting and sharing certain objectsEdge weight: Photos and videos carry more of a weight than links and statuses – people seem to interact with them more, giving them more of a weightTime decay: just like it says… if you post a story on Monday by Friday it will be less visible as its getting older
  • Facebook is continually changing, but the EdgeRank algorithm stays the same, just the name has changed
  • Photo uploads total 300 million per day
  • Edgerank checker: Connect your facebook and this site will help page admins understand how their page interacts with the news feed Infogr.am: allows you to plug in your data and then creates an infographicMemegenerator.net: choose a photo and then insert your text to create your very own memeYouTube:
  • Frequency: Post 1-2 times per dayLength: ???Discuss scheduling: super easy to schedule right through fb or even using third-party tools which we’ll discuss later
  • Target your post by gender, location, job titleYou can also pay to promote a certain post which will increase engagementAlways be sure to @tag a company in a post if necessary – this will notify the company they’ve been mentioned in a post on your page, ultimately giving your page even more attentionFacebook recently implemented the use of hashtags in posts --- FINISH this thoughtBe sure to always include a call to action in your posts – whether it is click the link below, sign up for our newsletter, join our group – people tend to interact more when they are told what to do
  • When responding to comments do so in moderation. If a conversation gets lengthy or maybe inappropriate, move it to a private message or an email conversationBe diverse in your posts – though its great to post photos and videos to increase your edgerank score, maybe think of turning the title of an article into photo and then posting the link to the article in the text box – this way you’re still using the photo but still able to drive the traffic back to your websiteBe transparent and be human– photos of people tend to do the best – for example, if you’re having a company potluck be sure to post a photo this not only will do extremely well for your edgerank but will also show your fans you’re human
  • HootSuite: Free and paid pro versions – manage and schedule out posts for LI, TW, FBSprout Social: Paid application – offers a full report and analytics page, connect your FB, TW and G+ account, allows you to schedule and manage postsHubspot: Paid application – monitor, schedule posts, shows clicks on links and best times to post
