On Friday I completely and utterly destroyed The Phil Factor and knocked some of my competition out of the way. Score one for me! Now I’m on to other things. In my continuing effort to achieve ultimate blogging supremacy I have decided it’s time to streamline my social media connections , specifically my Facebook connection to you.
As you may remember from my post, Better Blogging Through Facebook, I have a love/hate relationship with the social media behemoth. It has become increasingly difficult to reach people unless I pay for ads. And, here’s the real kick in the balls, even when I pay I don’t see a huge increase in connection.
But now Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he’s going to make it even harder for Facebook pages to generate organic reach, as they are moving towards more “personal connections” or some bullshit like that. You can read his full statement here. Of course, in that statement he never mentions the number of times in any given day that he begs me for money to boost my posts, but yeah, let’s just say it’s about more meaningful connection.
So, I’ve decided to scrap the blog’s Facebook page at the end of the month, not delete it entirely, but rather “unpublish” it and hope one day things get better. Until then, you can still find my blog posts on Facebook, but you’re going to have to follow my personal page if you want them. And you can do that by clicking here. Or you can find all my social media connections in my Follow This Blog page.
Or you can just scrap the whole thing, decide technology is too difficult, throw all your devices into a river, and move to a remote mountaintop to seek true enlightenment. Personally, I think it’s just easier to follow my personal Facebook page, but that’s just me. Whatever you decide, though, just don’t be an idiot and start eating Tide pods. That’s just dumb and you’re better than that.
