Missed the Facebook Communities Summit?Here are the key points from the keynote speech.Chief Product Officer Chris Cox flew into Europe to make some big announcements in relation to the new Facebook mission of building communities. In attendance at the two-day event were some of Europe's top Facebook community builders: group admins, event creators, and page admins.You can watch the video here but I've summarised the key points below: 4 new features for Facebook Groups This was...More
I stumbled across algorithm change insight gold this morning in the form of a series of screen grabs from a private webinar on News Feed updates from the new Facebook Journalism Project. The Next Web's Matt Navarra had tweeted the screen grabs (those I am showing here are from his Twitter account) and I've also managed to find a set of detailed notes from the webinar that Ned Berke has compiled.Together these shed light on what the algorithm changes mean for Pages, and in particular new...More
The fallout from Facebook Zero has been very varied between Pages. Some are reporting little difference, and some, like the Page we are going to feature here, are experiencing huge drops in reach.We were contacted a few days after the Facebook announcement of 11 January by Alexandre Cortez. Alexandre had grown a huge Page (I Love Pot) on the topic of recreational cannabis use (which of course is legal in some countries and on many others there is pressure to relax legislation) over a f...More

Here at The Digiterati we like to keep on top of changes at Facebook. We spot the changes, understand what they mean for social media managers and let you know about it in as simple and practical terms as possible. And the last few weeks have most definitely kept us on our toes.At the end of November Facebook quietly changed the size specifications for Group cover photos and somewhat belatedly made some recommendations as to what sizes admins should now be using.Now that's all very well ...More
I got unexpectedly added to a Facebook Group the other week and boy did it get my social media etiquette hackles raised.I coach a lot of people on how to setup and run Facebook Groups and one of my most basic rules is not to add people to the Group without permission. None of us likes finding ourselves on a mailing list we didn't sign up for and it's the same with Facebook - we want to control our own likes thank you. And of course legal frameworks such as CAN-SPAM and the Privacy and Electr...More
