    Ever since Facebook has been under scrutiny for mismanaging user data, it feels like they're reworking algorithms and becoming less commercial friendly. I believe it's hurting business. My updates are no longer showing up in personal feeds like they used to. Has anyone else noticed this problem and have you found a work-around? I'm happy to pay for advertising, but now it feels like it's harder to standout and encourage engagement.

    It takes time to learn how to market on a new platform, but I've switched to Instagram for fresh advertisements. I rely a lot on Tap.bio to redirect to certain domains and to host my digital business card. I use Tailwind for scheduling and analytics. Tailwind works a lot like Cinchshare does on Facebook. I wish I knew more about Facebook to help you, but I haven't used it much in the past few months.

    I think you could be onto something here. I'm going to do more with our Instagram page and start placing ads on the platform. I'll see how well it converts. Thanks for the help!

    Facebook just isn't the place to be anymore for marketing purposes. If you want to keep it personal with a small following, nothing much has changed.

    They say that one of the more important metrics to pay attention to is the type of traffic you get. Get that part of it well-honed and that would be a good start.

    If you have more than 2 or 3 social media sites going at the same time, integrate them all together. That should help a great deal as well.
