I wanted to create this simple step-by-step post about how to actually see in your timeline the posts you want to see from the Facebook pages you have “liked” and “followed,” because it’s not automatic that they will show up. Facebook seems to limit how many “likers” and “followers” actually see pages’ posts so that page managers are incentivized to pay Facebook to “boost” their posts onto likers' and followers' timelines. But there is something you can do to increase your chances of seeing the content you want...
Four Tips to See Your Liked Pages’ Posts in Your Facebook Timeline
These tips increase the likelihood you’ll see the posts from the pages you like and follow on Facebook:
1. Go to the page that you have liked or followed and make sure both items are checked: Liked, check; Following, check.
2. Click the down arrow to the right of “Following” and see what the setting is. The default setting is “Default” (whod’a thunk it?).
3. Change that setting by clicking on “See First.”
4. Keep manually visiting your favorite Facebook pages every so often just to see if you’re seeing the posts. But by doing the above, the likelihood sure seems greater than if you have only “liked” a page or “followed” a page without choosing to “See First.”
Facebook is an imperfect, but easy, way that a lot of people use to keep updated on when their favorite people and companies post new content on their blogs or websites. I know I use it for that. And if you do, too, then I hope this quick tutorial helps you stay current.
