This week is a bit of a quiet week with a round up of Facebook and Instagram news from the Facebook Community Boost Event in San Diego last week, Google expandable snippets and changes coming to LinkedIn Groups.

What do the changes to Facebook's 20% text rule mean?

What’s Up with Facebook’s 20% Text Rule?

Getting found on Facebook is the same as getting found on Google. In that you are limited by organic reach. Facebook, like Google wants you to pay in order for your target market to find your business. But they even want you to pay so that your customers can see your content, that’s right… they want to charge you for showing your posts to your customers. That’s why we are all considering Facebook ads right, because not enough people are seeing the posts on our business page.

So remember anything Facebook does, it does out of love money.

It’s all about the money, money, money.

When is the best time to post on Facebook?

I just shared this link in Your Marketing Lounge to some research by Quick Sprout on the best times to post on Facebook, as there are a few night owls in there who will appreciate this (myself included!)

But it’s also an important topic to discuss because the conclusions of this research study may surprise you…The best time to post isn’t the time when the most people are online and posting. Sounds counterintuitive right? Well the research shows that when you post at the same time as everyone else you are up against a lot of competition in the news feed. And Facebook can only show so many posts – so if you’ve ever wondered why you don’t see a post when your friend does it could be because a lot of the people and pages you are following are posting at the same time as each other, and Facebook has to choose which posts you get to see in your news feed.

Last week we were talking about social media over in Your Marketing Lounge, we all know how important it is to be visible and active on social channels whatever your business these days. And it’s becoming increasingly important to support our social conversations with high quality, on point images for visual impact, especially on a site like Instagram where it’s ALL about the visual impact.

Inevitably the question was asked

“How do I upload photos from my camera to Instagram?"
