  2. 2. Engagement or Likes! What works better for Facebook? • Likes were always considered as the main metrics to judge the success of the page but with the changing time, engagement has taken a front seat. • Today, it is more important to measure your engagement level than likes. • Businesses are clear on whom they want to target and what type of content they want to share to have a highly engaging and interactive page.
  3. 3. Why Engagement and not likes? • Social media is all about engaging with your fans/audience. There is no point of having thousands of fans but no engagement. • Such fans are just the headcounts and not contributing to the page in any way.

For • example, if a fan comments on the post or share your content or participate in any activity on the page then they are increasing your viral reach, as their participation will appear on their feeds or on the page, which will let you reach out many people at the same time. • We never say likes are not important, they are very important for a page to start engagement but always target right audience, who are interested in you as a brand/business because this will only lead to right kind of engagement.

To get people coming back to your page, your content must be truly engaging. Remember that negative interaction with your fans can actually count against you. If your fans think you are spamming them they can report your posts to Facebook, further reducing your chances of your future posts being seen. 7.
