Walmart $50 Gift Card Giveaway

Frugal Living and Having Fun needs your help! As a Thank you, I am giving away a $50 Walmart Gift Card to one reader of Frugal Living and Having Fun that participates in the action needed to help Frugal Living and Having Fun..

Facebook has gone through many changes since January 1, 2012.  So much so, that readers that follow Frugal Living and Having Fun are not seeing all of the many great deals that are posted on Facebook.  Facebook has chosen to hold back showing all post to all readers.

It appears from everything I have read and seen, that Facebook will ONLY show post that are having interactions from readers.  Interactions are things such as “Likes”, “Comments on post”, and “Shares” where you would share the Facebook posting with your Facebook friends.  The “Like”, and “Share” buttons are directly below each posting on FaceBook.

If there is no interaction, the post gets hidden from many reader’s feed.  PLUS, if you do not visit Frugal Living and Having Fun often, they will drop my post from your feed all together.

That is NOT all.  Facebook has also started charging, bloggers like myself, to show post to all their readers.  Since this is not fair to my wonderful readers, I need your help in getting my deals into your hands and the hands of our many wonderful Frugal Readers.

So here is what you can do to help Frugal Living and Having Fun get seen on Facebook, and to see our post.  If you do any or all of the following, please leave a comment below telling  me what you’ve done.  I will announce the winner Next Friday at 12:00 Noon.

  Follow Frugal Living and Having Fun on Google+ (Google +  is very similar to Facebook without the drama of Facebook).  It is very straight forward, and super easy to follow.  Follow Frugal Living and Having Fun Here!

The following would help me so much, and are all extra entries.  Enter as many times as you would like, and as many times as you do any of the following.   I really appreciate your help.

OR

Bonus Entries:

1.  “LIKE” post on my Facebook Fan Page that you enjoy.  (Bonus entry each day you do this.) You may “LIKE” as many as you would like, the more you “LIKE” the more you will see my post. *Please remember to do this often.

2. “SHARE” post from my Facebook Fan Page with your friends on Facebook.  (You may do this as may days until this giveaway is over.) Give yourself an entry each time you “SHARE”.

3. “BOOKMARK” Frugal Living and Having Fun”.  This will give you instant access to all the great deals, freebies, coupons, samples and more  that are posted regularly throughout the day without worrying about what Facebook is up to.

4. “Sign-up for my FREE Daily Newsletter” - This will allow you to see all the deals at one time when it is convenient to you.

HAVE FUN and THANK YOU for all your help!!   Your help is needed for the on-going success of Frugal Living and Having Fun.  We need to get a handle on Facebook’s Tricks.

I don’t have any answers/solutions to this but any chance throught the day you could just post your page name that would help remind me to check your FB page &/blog.

Lois May 31, 2012 at 11:30 pm 107

I like your post, and I shared the ones about the donuts. I think if your readers go into your page on FB, they can see where you are “Liked”. If they click on that, they can check “Show in Newsfeed” or something like that so that they should be able to see all posts.

Liked your post, shared it, followed on google, signed up for your newsletter, and liked you on FB. I see your posts all the time. Too bad FB doesn’t respect its followers, and if they are messing with you, they are messing with us. I will just like every post you do, and then I will see all your feeds. Yeah!!!

My blog is only 5 months old and I have yet to figure out how to even add the Facebook “like” button to my blog (I’m not very Tech savvy). Even though I can’t get others to like my blog yet, I am more than happy to help you out. I’ll be liking several of your posts on Facebook. Good luck!
