A simple way not to miss our Facebook updates!
Ah, Facebook. We all spend so much time with it. Whether at home with the laptop perched on us or on-the-move with our smartphone, nearly all of us find ourselves glued to our News Feeds. It's just become a part of daily life and our evolving expectations around staying connected.
One thing you may have noticed is a a growing presence of "Sponsored" posts appearing in your News Feed. This simply means that another Facebook page or user has paid a fee to make sure that you see that post. It's an advertisement on Facebook - so instead of being a billboard or web banner, the ad just happens to be in the form of a Facebook post in your News Feed. That's not necessarily a bad thing either; however, it does present a bit of a conundrum: Facebook has to manage the relatively limited number of posts that you see in your News Feed. To do this, Facebook has begun increasingly reducing the number of posts of friends or pages you've "Liked" to make room for those "Sponsored" posts.
"Say what??" you might find yourself exclaiming. So, that means you might notsee the most recent update from Uncle Bill and Aunt Elizabeth on their new business, or from your high school friend about the new baby or even us - House Party - about host selection for the newest House Party event! Gasp!
We know how important it is for you to be able to get information about new House Party or Chatterbox opportunities and especially about selection for those events. So, we've developed the following step-by-step guide to make sure you get notified whenever we post and make missing posts a thing of the past. Enjoy!
Log in to Facebook on a laptop or desktop computer and head over to our page: www.facebook.com/housepartyfun
Click on the little upside-down triangle on the "Like" button...seen here:
Once you click on that upside-down triangle, simply select the option "Get notifications" in the drop-down menu. (You'll know it's selected when you see the check mark next to it!)
Now, all you have to do is sit back and wait for us to post! When we do, you'll see an alert come-up in your Notifications Center. Simply click on the notification and you'll be taken directly to the post. Pretty slick and pretty easy!
That's it - that's all it takes to make sure you're notified when we post and you'll never miss a Host Selection or new House Party event opportunity.
We hope this helps and we can't wait for you to use this little tip!
