We need your help! We rely on social media to share stories, gain support for our latest efforts, recruit people for our programs, and spread the word about the work that we do. Communication and grassroots messaging is how we continue providing much-needed support to our deployed troops and veterans.
Unfortunately, the newest change to the Facebook algorithm is making it harder for us to show up in the Facebook news feed. But you can help! Here’s how.
Did you know that you can choose to “Follow” a Facebook page to ensure you see its content?
Right under the Facebook cover photo is the option to follow.
Once you follow, you can choose how you see posts.
See First (See new posts from this Page at the top of your News Feed)
Default (See posts in their usual order from this Page)
You can even choose to be notified about posts!
Standard (All notifications from this Page, up to 5 per day)
Highlights (Notifications about suggested posts from this Page)
Facebook ranks posts by the amount of engagement they have. So, have questions or comments? Please add them to the comment section! Posting in the comments section is a signal to Facebook that the post is engaging - which means it will start showing up in more news feeds. Likes and reactions are also great. So thumbs up, laugh, WOW, and heart our posts all you want! It helps.
A “Share” is the ultimate mark of an engaging post to Facebook. When the algorithm sees “Shares”, it serves that same post up to even more follows. So, sharing helps us in two ways, it shows our post to your friends and it helps us land in more news feeds.
With your help, we can continue to spread the word about at-risk veterans who need help, troops who could use a little love and support, and military families who are struggling. We can help recruit volunteers to pass out food at our food distributions, get more Angels to sign-up to support deployed troops, and collect needed items like sock, blankets, and hygiene kits for our heroes.
