[Video] The End of Curated Content on Facebook

Posted: July 24, 2017

With the advent of Facebook’s recent update to its algorithm (dubbed the Friend Zone), the use of curated content on Facebook – those great 3rd party articles, images, blogs, etc. that many marketers use to fill our content calendars and posting schedules for Facebook Pages when they don’t have original content to publish – doesn’t make as much sense as it once did.

As the change shifts Facebook away from businesses and publishers and back towards its roots of connecting friends and family, organic reach for business pages has fallen off the proverbial cliff. That means if you want to reach target audiences today, you need to use Facebook’s advertising platform.

And if you have to pay to have your posts seen, it may not make sense to pay to promote someone else’s content you’ve curated.

What does all this mean for your social media marketing efforts? VONT president Tom Gale talks with Suzanne Madore, social media strategist at VONT to find out.
