  • 15. The basics@marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 16. Facebook glossary Profile = Your page, contains info, photos, videos, and list of your friends, or whatever else you choose to include. Post = Message of 420 characters or less. Wall = Where you & friends post to your profile. ‘like’= Button used to indicate appreciation, affiliation, or acknowledgement without having to add comment. News Feed = Continuous stream of updates. Fan Gate = Page requiring a ‘like’ in order to gain further value, content, of information. @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 17. What does ‘like’ actually do Replaces the old “Become a Fan” Replaces “Share” by auto-posting to your wall @marcusnelson #fbclass

  • 22. Harsh truth… @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 23. So what’s the value? @marcusnelson #fbclass

  • 25. Fans equal value @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 26. Start by making them fans @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 27. This is why we need the ‘like’ Getting posts into the newsfeed is critical to building impressions @marcusnelson #fbclass

  • 29. @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 30. Edge Rank@marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 31. @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 32. Edge Rank is Facebook’s algorithm Ranks on relevancy Shows 3-5 most interesting posts (FB randomizes it slightly so it doesn’t seem so stalkerish) Most fans NEVER see your status updates @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 33. How does Edge Rank work? Time decay – as time passes, stories lose points Affinity score – comments & likes add points my comments are worth more than my friends comments are worth more than non-friend comments The native “Edge” score – eg, photos have a default score that’s different than text @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 34. Can’t SPAM it as hard as you may try EdgeRank is between an object and a user – unlike SEO, EdgeRank score is different for each user No such thing as generic “Edge Rank score” – the architecture of the algorithm makes it impossible Real-time score – competes with everything in newsfeed… as long as a status update is in the top 3-7 posts, you’ll probably be shown until time decay reduces points OR other posts push you out Note: Mobile uses “Most Recent” which makes up 30% of users @marcusnelson #fbclass
  • 35. You CAN optimize your content Posting time – Saturday mornings are best Content – Does it connect with people. Format (text/photo/video/link) – Video/photo works best Localization – Target “become-a-fan” ad campaigns at friends of your fans @marcusnelson #fbclass
