We really appreciate people linking to us via social media and we would like you to keep us in your Facebook feed.
For the longest time, Facebook gave you no ability to control what content you see or keep in your Facebook news feed. We really appreciate how many people have already “liked” our Facebook page. But only a fraction actually see Samuel Morris Foundation posts in their news feed. That’s because a Facebook algorithm started making the decisions for you, showing you material from some people/pages, and not others (wanting us to pay to get into your news feed… but you should have the choice to keep us in your Facebook feed!)
Now, Facebook has finally introduced a new feature that will let you control what you see. Please check out the instructions below. When you’re done reading them, consider giving us a Like on Facebook (and asking your network to do the same), and then set your news feed accordingly. (You get bonus points if you Follow us on Twitter too!)
- If you’re using a mobile phone, open the Facebook app, click the “More” icon along the bottom of the app, then scroll down and click “Newsfeed preferences,” then click “Prioritize who to see first,” and make your picks. (You can select more than one item.)
- If you’re using Facebook on a computer, click on the downward facing arrow on the top nav bar, then click “Newsfeed preferences,” locate one of the people or publishers you follow, and change the setting from “Following” to “See First.”
Hope that this is helpful, and we look forward to sharing with across social media.
