Getting noticed in the Facebook NewsFeed

The Daily Beast recently posted an interesting article about how they think the Facebook algorithm works to decide what information people see in their news feed. The article goes into a lot more detail, but there are a couple of guidelines that resonate with commone sense. The gist is:

  • Get lots of people to interact with your profile – view images and videos, post on your wall, and especially comment on your posts. How you do this is a science in itself.
  • Posting links is better than just posting text status updates
  • Posting photos and videos is better than posting links
