Are You Missing Our Posts?

Did you know Facebook is hiding things from you? When we post something to our Facebook page you may not see it. How can this be you ask?

reachWell if you don’t interact with our page, simply by liking our posts or sharing them or even commenting on them, our post will disappear from your newsfeed. Still confused? The average teen has 300 friends, with the average user likes 40 pages. On average, 4.8 billion posts are posted a day. That is 4 post per user. This means that if you logged in once a day you could be exposed up to 1500 posts. This is why Facebook filters your newsfeed. The posts that will still appear in your newsfeed are the ones from people you interact with the most. Those who you do not will be filtered out. We have noticed that not all of our followers may be seeing our posts. On average only 22,000 of our 48,000 followers are seeing our posts on a given day. How can you make sure you don’t miss our posts without having to engage more on our page?


It’s simple! Follow the steps below.

1)Hover over the like button. DON’T CLICK THE LIKE BUTTON. This will unlike you from our page and we don’t want that!


2) Under the like button, click “Add To Interest Lists” then click “New List”


3)Once clicked “New List” click “Next” then name your list and choose your privacy settings


4)After clicking “Done” your new list will be created and will show up in the left side panel (I named my Weather). When you now go to this list you will see all of our post and will never miss one!


You can also click the “Get Notifications” button under the like button, but if you do this, every time we post something you will get a notification that we posted something. If you would like to be notified about every update we post then this feature is for you. As a reminder during large weather events we post often so you will get lots of notifications so don’t use this feature if you DO NOT want to be alerted often. Use this feature at your own risk!
