December Facebook Fest!

LikeUsOnFacebook_IconRecently, our Shawn Inmon had some great tips for getting your author Facebook page some exposure. Of course, his advice will work for anyone with an FB page, not just authors. Go have a read of his article, then come back here and get your Facebook page some love!

This is how it works: If you are a person with a Facebook page you’re welcome to join in. This is not limited to being an author, publisher, publicist, literary agent, book reviewer, librarian, (but if you’re a book-lover – that’s awesome!), etc., in the comments below, paste in the link for your Facebook Page. Make sure you show some love to the links in the comments above yours, and check back throughout the day to catch up. (“Likes” from other PAGES do not count. Only “likes” from personal accounts register.)

IMPORTANT: Please do not reply to every comment in this thread. Instead, leave a comment on the Facebook Page you like saying, “Indies Unlimited sent me. Please like me back.” Then after you’ve done a bunch, come back here and leave a marker at the bottom saying, “got everyone up to here.” If people reply to each comment with “liked you!,” we will have to turn off comment notifications because we generate more emails than the SPAM guidelines allow. Thank you.

[Don’t forget, if you right-click the links, you can choose to have them open in a separate tab so you don’t have to worry about navigating back and forth to pages.]

This should be fun and should generate a lot of likes, follows, etc. for everyone who plays. Let’s get the party started!

To those with concerns about the ethical implications of “liking” the page of a book you have not read, we regard  likes as more analogous to a “high five” than a rating or review. We do not support the idea of rating or reviewing a book you have never read.

PLEASE be sure to reciprocate by liking those who like you. This is give and take. If everyone plays by the golden rule, we all benefit.

      1. I appreciate comments related to the posts on the page, so it’s ok if you don’t post a comment. Not to worry! I am returning all likes. Thanks for your like!

    1. Hi Susanne, nice to have you here! In the future, please make sure to include your live link in the body of your comment, so people can easily find it. I got it for you this time. Thank you! 🙂

  1. Liked everyone up to this point. One thing I would add is that “Liking” someone’s page, then never interacting or liking anything on their page, actually hurts their exposure in the algorithm, as FB treats that as though you don’t find anything interesting there. So, if possible, when you see posts in your feed, it will be really helpful if you give items a Like now and then. 🙂

      1. 🙂 It’s all about those algorithms. That’s also why it is not a great idea to pay Facebook to find you new people to Like your page. Those people tend to be less engaged and can drag down the percentage of people who interact with your page.

        1. True, Shawn. I lose two “likes” for every one I get. No one has the time to interact, on a regular basis, with all the pages we’ve followed. My question: Why does FB care?

          1. I honestly never mind when I lose Likes. I figure that someone found my page, thinking it was one thing, when it turned out to be something else. Fair enough. I would rather people would unlike my page instead of never interacting with me. Interactive FB fans are more important to me than the number of likes I have on the page.

    1. Totally agree, Shawn.
      If a person doesn’t interact, Facebook stops sending them your posts.

    1. Apologies.
      Got a bit carried away with the messaging that I forgot to hit Like on some of the pages!
      Have gone back and liked them now.
      Apologies again, if I asked you to like me and forgot to like you.

        1. It had ticked over past midnight in my part of the world, but I didn’t want to wait until the morning. So, yeah, lack of sleep and brain fry.
          Yes, KS, did have fun.
