  3. 3. reach vs. search reach - what THEY give you - filtered by them - only a selection  feed search - what YOU look for - you can filter yourself - all information  search results
  4. 4. You wrote a post on a social medium but… hardly anyone is liking, commenting or sharing it? what is going on?  some insight for your personal and professional use of social media:
  5. 5. what is reach? • how far did my post spread? • who has seen my post? • filter system ≠ all fans ≠ all friends ≠ all followers ≠ all subscribers ≠ all connections more on exactly-how-social-media-algorithms-work-today
  6. 6. the reach of your post… is mostly than the number of your followers, fans, friends, connections, …   solution: respect the algorithm  be authentic  write as you speak  use another tone of voice for every medium  keep it short & simple  visualise your audience
  7. 7. but the reach of your post… can also be than the number of your followers, fans, friends, connections, …   going viral! = people share your post & reply on it!  why do people share something on social media?  why do people react to something on social media? => how to go viral?
  8. 8. 3 types or reach: • organic reach (filtered by algorithm) • paid reach (advertising) • viral reach (people spreading it further) 3 types or posts: • text • photo • video
