  1. I don’t like FB, but I do love Instagram. I always get more comments and likes on things I’ve shared from Instagram….probably because FB owns them, too!

    I am rebooting my blog in mid-September now that I’m entering the empty nest world, and I’m debating whether or not to start a FB page for my new (and hopefully improved) blog.

    I really like Bloglovin’ and I have a good readership there, and I enjoy reading my Bloglovin’ feed, too.

  2. I’ve never had Facebook.,…so no opinion. At Katherines Corner I like the blue striped tote and the Hydrangea ticking pillow. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I’d never have time to see all the posts from every page I’ve ever liked…back when fb first started and rafflecopter was the only thing around we’d be asked to like in order to enter , so we all liked so and so ons page and then just scrolled on past… to me, thats what a newsletter is for…getting your info out there, not fb, which I feel is more for connecting to family. And fb always defaults for me to “top news” which is basically shit thats happened two to three days ago, not actual posts that are happening right now (my pet peeve )

  4. I love it but truth is I hear you should keep I know many are learning how to use FB because of Rachel from Moolah. I can add you to her FB group. Many bloggers ask a lot of questions and there is a lot of great information. Just a thought

  5. Aah,Facebook.I think we are fairly close in age.Have 4 grown daughters,ranging from 19-31.They all do Facebook.Have been wanting me to as well,to stay up to date with their lives.I haven’t and do not plan to.They should and will take the time to at least text their mom?!The only “social media”,I have is Pinterest.For about 18 months.I have almost 11,500 followers.No clue if that is good or not;just like to think I know a thing or 2,about a thing or 2.If you are questioning wether to keep Facebook,it must be a negative or frustrating thing for you.Algorythms are used on Pinterest too,but since I read hundreds of blogs every day;am pinning every day.Follow your gut and keep up the good work on your blog.Such a sweet spirit you have dear lady!

  6. Hi Kathryn,
    I never knew that had that feature! Thank you for pointing it out. That means a lot and will help me with future likes and follows!!!

  7. My daughter chastise me because I ‘like’ so many things on FB. They say that it shows up on their page with too many things; mostly from me. I try not to put too many likes, etc. because of that. I would say do whatever makes you feel happier. 🙂

  8. I use Facebook just for keeping in touch with family, friends etc. Since the campains and election there has been a lot of very negative (to put it lightly) stuff on there. What I do is just cleck the button to “hide this post”. I don’t want it to be on my page, even if a friend or relative has posted it. Anyway, that’s what I do:):)

  9. I have a love/hate relationship with FB, too. There are days I’m ready for a divorce! LOL. Then I sit back for a few days, take a breather, don’t do anything drastic. There’s always a fine line in FB–being informed and being overwhelmed. I try really hard to keep a balance.

  10. Mrs. Katherine,

    Facebook is a tricky demon. Scheduling posts, 3-5 per day, is what “they” suggest. Posting “controversial” titles and getting comment while replying to them, all of them, makes a difference. Ads are ridiculous. In fact, there are entire blogging courses all about maximizing ad space on FB and that cost a pretty good chunk of money too. Ridiculous! Wait! Already said that. LOL

    What I can tell you is that autosharing from Instagram does help boost reach. As you know, FB owns IG and will naturally favor those posts, plus, all the engagement on IG helps on FB. Not sure how that all breaks down in the computer geek language. I just know it works.

    FB hates links that lead out of their platform unless they are paid ads. Sticking to memes and singluar photos with some clever or “controversial” headline works best.

    Whew….. Okay. That’s a lot of work and exhausting to think about doing every. single. day! I hate FB. Yes. Hate is a strong word and I truly hate FB. It’s a complicated process to grow or even reach anyone, yet it’s the first place people go to when they want to learn about a person or business. In turn, that makes FB a necessary evil that we need.

    However, IG should be your jam. Get on. Share IG stories of your behind the scenes. Post 1-2x daily when possible. Use 20-30 tags on every post. Reach out to others and LEAVE COMMENTS! Not yelling at you! Just making it clear that the key to IG is reaching out and commenting. Again, not sure how it breaks down in computer geek terms but I know for a fact, from experience, it does work!

    Be sure to auto share IG posts direct to FB and don’t forget to hop over and reply to people who take the time to comment.

    I hope this helps you. <3

  11. Personally, I only use Facebook to exchange info and photos with actual family and friends. I rarely “like” a page because I prefer not to share everything I see or read with my friends list and the advertising community. I only visit a blog’s Facebook page when asked to do so for a promotion or a giveaway entry. I don’t do Instagram at all. I do, however, check my email daily and that determines which blogs I visit based on whether or not a post looks interesting.

    I’m retired and in my early 60’s. I don’t know what the demographic is for your readers, but I’m guessing that much of your audience falls into this age group and are like-minded. You asked, lol. I hope this helps!
