How to Foil Facebook's Evil Plot to Keep Us Apart.

If you've wondered where myself and everyone else with a "page" has been hiding, we are right where you last left us! Facebook just doesn't want us to be friends. But, like everything else these days, there is a work around to stay up to date with your favorite pages. Here's how.

There are a few ways to make sure you don't miss a thing.

1. Add your favorite pages to your news feed. Just because you liked a page no longer means you will actually see new content from them. This means the pages will show up. Sometimes. I've had hit or miss results with this. It helps if you "like" their posts, if for no other reason than to keep them showing up in your feed.

2. In a step that seems backwards to me, Facebook is now encouraging you to create Interest Lists, which  is not unlike subscribing to an RSS feed. You can create a list, like the one of my favorite beauty reads called "Gouldylox Beauty Faves" (you can subscribe to mine or make your own.) Once you've named an Interest List, you can then add your favorite pages by hovering over the "Like" button and clicking "Add to Interest List".

To access your list, click on the Facebook icon on the top left to see your lists of pages and groups and apps. At the bottom is your interest list. When you click on your list, you'll only see the pages you are interested in, just like one big RSS feed. Of course, it helps to keep interacting with your favorite pages by commenting or just clicking like, so you will see more of that page in the future.

I hope you'll add Gouldylox Reviews to your interest lists, as well as any other blogger you love to love. Liking comments also helps posts continue to populate in your news feed. Let's stick together! I know that I've been missing your feedback and I hope to see you again soon!

  2. Thanks for this information. I started hearing about this but I wasn't totally sure if it was true. I guess that's why my emails from FB tell me I'm down by 50%.

  3. Thanks for this! I know all of us bloggers miss interacting with readers, it is a big part of why we write in the first place!
