Salt Facebook or Twitter

Facebook does not display posts from “Prophecy with a pinch of salt” 

Share Salt Facebook or Twitter: Most people are unaware that the articles posted on our pages do NOT get displayed to everyone! A recent post of mine showed that it was seen by exactly ONE PERSON – ME, evidently! That is not the way FB started out but it is the way that they are FORCING page owners to pay for advertising. Either you pay, or your posts don’t get displayed.

I believe that the articles of the “Prophecy with a pinch of salt” book will be of great interest and value to my friends and their friends – and beyond! I just have to get the message to them.

Promoting pages on Facebook

“Promoting” is Facebook’s term for PAYING to get your post or page displayed to more people.

So far, I have spent almost $30 of my own money trying to advertise the Prophecy with Salt page on Facebook, and gotten very little results. As reported today (see the image to the right), For $25.81, I have gotten almost nothing. Although over 4,000 people POTENTIALLY saw the advertisement, only 106 people actually clicked on it. That works out to 1 in 400 clicked on an ad of mine – costing me $.25 a click!!

And, even though we increased the number of likes by 19, ALL of those likes came from our friends and their friends! NOT a single Page Like came from the ad!!

So, I need your help. Would you SHARE one or more of our posts? Share the articles that you feel would be of interest to your friends (probably NOT this one). Posts such as our TIMELINE article deserve widespread sharing! Such personal sharing (& commenting) does more to spread the message than anything else. And, it will save me a few of my (very limited) personal dollars.

Between The Lines?

Sharing Knowledge – Gaining Friends

The Between The Lines Online Community (BTLOC) exists to provide ordinary people with a venue for giving help and guidance to others. (AKA “Just Ordinary Folks”)

between the linesWhy “Between The Lines”? We show what the instruction books leave out.

“Between the lines” suggests that, even with the immense quantity of information in the Internet, there are some things that need further explanation. Our writers offer the common sense approach to helping in some area where they feel gifted.

Each of our websites is unique in design and purpose. Many are written by different authors. Some are Biblical, some are general interest, some are technical, and others may be related to crafts or trades.  Some are just for fun! But they all have a common focus: to help our friends understand a concept better.

Our NEWS site (http://news.btloc.com) will present the newest and best articles from all the other sites. So, you can just connect there (or subscribe) and know when one of our sites has published a new article that may be of interest to you.
