Important Social Media Updates You Want To Know & Tips You Can’t Be Social Without
In This Week’s Weekend Roundup

I can be guilty of over thinking things. My analytical skills and sense of systematizing come in handy when it comes to work flow, reviewing data, coding, creating systems, and so on. However, when it’s time to post on social media it’s important for me to take that hat off and let things flow, within reason of course.

The other day after going back and forth with what I was going to post next on Facebook, God laid this on me:

Some people over think their updates while others don’t think at all. Find the midpoint and relax.”

This was huge for me and I knew I had to post it on Facebook.

Promote and Engage on Facebook

There will be times when you may be hesitant to share something on social media. However, my guess is that it’s not just for you, but for someone else to. The next time you’re over thinking not just social media, but your blog post or next online event, find the midpoint and relax.

This week find out how Facebook determines whether or not what you’re posting shows up in the newsfeed. Also check out the latest updates and requirements for prompting on Facebook.

You’ll get this and more in this week’s weekend roundup!

Enjoy your family, enjoy your friends, enjoy this issue!

Much love,

Facebook Offers is an advertising feature that allows businesses to create discounts or promotions for their products and services.
