facebook vs twitter filter
Facebook vs. Twitter: Filter
  • Facebook has a filter (algorithm) that chooses what a user sees amongst their Friend/Fan Page posts
  • Twitter has no filter; user sees everything
filter implications
Filter Implications
  • Facebook: “Feed the algorithm”
  • Twitter: As feeds get saturated → risk of unfollows
facebook vs twitter medium
Facebook vs. Twitter: Medium
  • Facebook=Media rich, long form text.
  • Twitter=140 characters of text.
medium implications
Medium Implications
  • Do not link your accounts- separate channels with separate uses.
  • Facebook: Visual medium with no character constraints. PAINT A PORTRAIT.
  • Twitter: Non-visual medium with 140 character limit. CRAFT A QUICK MESSAGE.
facebook vs twitter time decay
Facebook vs. Twitter: Time Decay
  • Facebook: Quality content may remain high on news feed for a period of time.
  • Twitter: Content has strict chronological display.
time decay implications
Time Decay Implications
  • Facebook: Post it once and make it count. Time of day is not as important.
  • Twitter: OK to repeat tweets at different times of day (with slightly different wording). Experiment with different times, days, etc.

The facts about Facebook:

1) Most Fans rely on the (algorithm-driven) news feed rather than visiting your Page directly

2) News feed: Facebook algorithm is a function of “affinity, weight, and time decay”.

  • Affinity: Frequency of interactions with your Page
  • Weight: Comments /Shares > Likes > Visits
  • Time Decay: Recency of interactions with your Page
facebook s reach
Facebook’s Reach
  • With engagement comes potential for tremendous reach.

    • Simply being on Facebook is not going to “move the needle”
    • Utilize smart Facebook behavior + provide engaging content
