    • 8.  Get people to engage with your content. The more often people interact with your page, the more often Facebook will show your content to them.
    • 9. It bears repeating: Post tons of images!  Make a graphic out of information instead of just typing it in the status update. Simply overlay the info in big, bold text over a relevant image or a plain colored background.  Find cartoons about education  Take behind-the-scenes pictures of your members and events Try www.pixlr.com or Picasa.

(Note: Keep your website current — website and social media go hand in hand)  Be positive.  Be informal and use organizing language. Posts with selfreferential words like ―I‖ and ―we‖ tend to get more likes.
    • 13.  Posts published on Saturdays and Sundays get more likes than those posted during the week.  Content posted later in the day get more likes and shares — likes peak around 8PM EST, while shares peak around 6PM EST.  Deliberate pacing gets more attention.  Facebook pages versus groups: no data with groups/no privacy with pages
