Should You Fill Out This Form?

Ensure Your Content Is Seen by More People

Facebook doesn’t automatically show all posted content to all of the people that have “liked” a page.

When something is posted to a Facebook page, Facebook sends that post out to a small “test” group of people and gauges how well the post performs with that small segment. If that group of people interact with the post (by liking or commenting on it) Facebook will show the post to more people. The more people that interact with a post, the more people will see it. Often times, users will not see a post in their feed until the following day due to Facebook’s algorithm.

Based on our extensive Facebook research, we’ve discovered a few tricks that help your message be seen by more people.

What Doesn’t Work Well on Facebook These Days

Facebook is always updating it’s algorithm. We are constantly watching to see what types of posts reach the most readers, and we’ve determined that interactive posts are the best way to go.

In contrast, Facebook penalizes (restricts the number of people who see) posts that contain a link to a site outside of Facebook or an image.

Posts that combine text updates with images or outbound links also perform very poorly.

It is for this reason that grkids.com will no longer post sponsor images on our Facebook page without advance permission and image approval. Sponsors rather, will need to supply text that we can use to promote the sponsor business on the grkids.com Facebook page.

If you have an image that you would like to submit for advertising approval, email it to admanager@grkids.com. Please note that if your image is approved, it will be posted without a link or accompanying text.

For Best Results, Submit Content Early

If content is not received at least 7 days prior to publication, our staff will create an post on your behalf based on information gathered from your website.

Turbo Charge Your Posts

Facebook allows us to boost Facebook posts. This essentially means that we can pay to have Facebook show our posts to more of our fans. If you would like to have grkids.com boost some or all of your Facebook posts, please contact melody@grkids.com to discuss your options.
