Facebook Fans Can Now Choose To Never Miss A Thing With Page Notifications!

“Get Notifications”
Allows Fans To Stay Tuned In!

In the recent “Fan Page Fear Factor” report we discussed the possibility that Facebook page fans would soon be offered a way to bypass the crippling effects of EdgeRank on their ability to keep tabs on a Facebook Page.

(If you didn’t view that report, and you are using a Facebook Page, you really should as it contains things you need to know.)

It’s here! (You may not have this feature yet but you will soon as it is in gradual release.)

Located under the “Liked” button on Facebook Fan (Business) Pages, the “Get Notifications” option allows the fan to choose to get a notification every time the page publishes a piece of content.

In the Facebook report, which I hope you’ve watched, I published a number of important pros and cons to this feature. This will either be VERY powerful for you or problematic for your fans.

The notification, of each new item posted, will show up in their upper left toolbar, just like other notifications, and can very easily be fully disabled right from there. It’s incredibly easy to turn off the notifications for an individual page, without affecting your notification status for other pages.

As of yet there are no additional notification controls added to the Facebook account settings that would prevent these from working as expected.

Yes, you need to encourage your fans to go click this IF the pro elements are in your favor. Listen to the report and make up your mind… in the meantime, click “Get Notifications” on my page on Facebook (click here) to stay up to date on Facebook and social marketing news as it happens!

Feel free to share the image above with your fans directly and encourage them to “Get Notifications” from both you and I!

Have you checked out the “Get Notifications” feature yet?

Hi, Kim,
Thanks for keeping us posted on all things concerning Facebook. I am not sure yet whether I will use this feature, but I think I’m going to go for it.

Thanks Kim for telling us about this feature. I find that it becomes difficult to keep up with all the changes being implemented by Facebook and features such as this get lost. I have so many liked items that this feature will help me keep track of things that I feel are important. I think this was a great addition and will help people keep up with things that they feel interested in.

From a user standpoint, I must confess I have mixed feelings about receiving every post. So many people consider ‘engagement’ to be posting one photo or joke or link after another – admittedly, some people eat that stuff up and that’s why they love Facebook. Personally, while I certainly enjoy the occasional “share” on the newsfeed, I don’t think I want a steady diet of it.
