What are Facebook Followers?

Have you noticed people who you have not accepted as friends on Facebook can actually be your Facebook Followers?  

I was asked the other day about how to find out who these followers are.  There really is a very simple way.

Facebook Followers – who are they?

To find out who your Facebook Followers are go to your profile. You will see in your Intro Section the amount of Followers you have.

Click on the number of people and your Facebook Followers list will appear.

How do I stop people from following me?

To stop someone from being a Facebook Follower go to their profile and block them. Simples.  After that click on the three dots to the right of their cover photo and choose the option to block. You won’t be able to see their information any more and they wont be able to see yours.

What do Facebook Followers see?

Your Facebook Followers will only be able to see those posts that you choose to share publicly.

Who sees what on Facebook?

If you have something that you are sharing that is more private, chose the option, for instance, to be seen by Friends only.

Are you aware that you can actually create your own “lists” on Facebook? This enables you to share posts from your personal profile to a specific group of people?

Simply click on the more button under “Friends except…” and you’ll see what I mean.

Where are my Facebook Followers settings

On your personal profile click on settings and then you will see an option on the left hand side which says public posts.  Click here and you’ll see right at the top  “who can follow me”. It’s here that you can change your settings if you would like to.

Edit Personal Settings

If you would like to block more than 1 of your Facebook Followers you can. Go to your settings and click on blocking. Type “All Followers” in to the Block Users Bars. As a result your list, although not as details as above, will appear.

Removing a Review on Facebook

People often ask me about removing a review on Facebook. Basically my answer up until now has been – quite simply you can’t.

Facebook have listened and thankfully you are now able to report malicious reviews left on your business page. Facebook will remove the review if it doesn’t reach their guidelines.

Just the other day, my first day back working after the Christmas break I received a notification saying “You have received a new recommendation”. Oooh how lovely I thought. Until I saw the recommendation.

“I do not recommend North East Social Media, I don’t want to see her posts” – is what was written. By someone I had never heard of in British Columbia. Why she would be seeing my posts without liking my page I will never know!

I’ve worked hard to build up a reputation and have enjoyed my 5/5 Reviews on Facebook. So this one review, from someone who has never used my services, reduced me to a 4.6/5 rating and I was not amused!

Removing a Review on Facebook – Reporting

Thankfully I was able to click on the three dots next to the review where I was given the option to report a recommendation.

(Not that I would be reporting this review, Chris is lovely)

What really impressed me is that within an hour of reporting this, Facebook Support Responded to me with this…..

In conclusion, if you have a bad recommendation or review on Facebook you can now do something. For instance, if it is unwarranted and has nothing to do with your product or service. When the review isn’t based on real personal experience, Facebook will remove it.

Obviously Facebook won’t remove the recommendation or review if it is talking about your product or service. However, if blank, or totally inappropriate like mine was, they will. A step in the right direction!

How do I get likes on my Facebook Page

The question How do I get likes on my Facebook Page is one that I am asked often.

It’s important to let people know you are there! Creating a beautiful business page is one thing, but once it’s there you have to go out and get people to “like” you.

How do I get likes on my Facebook Page – Invitations

The first thing you can do is invite any people you are personal friends with on Facebook to like your page but be aware. My advice here would be, only invite the people who would actually be interested in your business posts.

There is no point getting people to like your page just for the numbers.

You need likes from people who are really going to be interested in what you do, what you post about. People who will get value from your updates and ultimately people who are likely to buy your product or service.

The large logo links through to my website, the underlined text links to my personal LinkedIn Profile and the Social Media Icons below that link to my relevant Social Media platforms.

Email your contacts

Send an email and TELL people you are on Social Media and ask people to connect with you.

Other Suggestions

If you send out products, include a postcard, or business card, with your Facebook Business Page details on it.

Important Update – 1st March 2021

Please be aware that Facebook have annouced, some time ago now, that they are in the process of getting rids of likes on your Facebook page. These will be replaced with “follows”. If you check, you will probably find that you already have more followers than you do likes.
