5 Ways to Get Your Facebook Posts Seen by More People

Posted by @DanHinmon, Oct 4, 2016

Very interesting tips here, including this one I’ve never heard before:

“Actually scheduling posts to Facebook yourself instead of using a service like Buffer or Hootsuite is probably the most important factor in getting your content seen organically. Facebook’s algorithm favours posts uploaded by the user.”

If this is true, it complicates all our efforts to schedule posts. What do you think?


The ability to schedule and preview posts within Facebook is probably one of the greatest things that ever happened to me at work. Hootsuite’s nice for Twitter, but I’m not sure why people want to still use it for FB.

Hi, I think the same as Megan. I schedule within Facebook since it’s possible and I use Hootsuite for Twitter and Google page. Hoosuite doesn’t work very nicely with LinkedIn either.
The reason why people keep using Hootsuite for FB could be for the reports, one tool one report. This is my guess, what do you think?
