  • To reach the most people you have to play into Facebook’s newsfeed algorithm, and you can do that two ways:  Post rich content like photos, videos, and links.
  •  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.
  •  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. It bears repeating: Post tons of images!
  •  Create memes — you can do it quickly on www.quickmeme.com

Make sure all posts, even the fun ones, further your association’s overall message.  Make posts very short. If your info is long/complicated, link to more information. (Note: Keep your website current — website and social media go hand in hand)  Be positive.  Be informal and use organizing language. Posts with self- referential words like ―I‖ and ―we‖ tend to get more likes.
  •  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
