It has come – the day that Facebook charges is here. This post is not a rant or a vent or in anyway negative. I just want to share the facts with you. I personally believe that Facebook is entitled to charge as it is their business and they can do whatever they like with their business. I may not like it or agree, but seeing that I am CEO of Couponers Unitedand not Facebook, there is not a whole lot I can do about it – hehe! I have heard the rumors about Facebook charging, but didn’t really buy into it. The day has actually com!
So, who is being charged? Those of us that have Facebook Pages for our business are being charged to “promote” our posts. Those of you that interact with Couponers United already on Facebook (commenting, liking, clicking posts) will continue to see our posts in your feed (hopefully). However, if you go on vacation or aren’t on Facebook for a few days, they will remove me from you feeds. Right now only 6% – 12% of the people that “like” Couponers United on Facebook see our posts in their feed. IF we want more of our “likers” to see our posts, we now have to pay. It ranges from $15 – $300 PER POST! Crazy! AND Those of you receiving my posts in your feed right now are probably only seeing 1/4 of what I actually post – so keep reading below!!
Will Couponers United be paying for posts? I’m a frugal blogger – frugal being the key word. And seeing as how I don’t have an extra $50 or $300 sitting around I will not be paying for every post. Again, I’m not angry at Facebook-I just want to inform you all of what is going on 🙂
How can you continue to see posts in your feed with all these new changes going on? There are a few ways you can continue to see all the deals I post about.
If you are not following Couponers United anywhere other than Facebook, you will definitely want to now:
- Receive a daily email with the last 24hrs worth of posts(don’t forget to check your email to confirm)
- Follow me on Google+ Add me to your circles!!
- Follow along on Twitter

I HIGHLY suggest the daily email route – followed by RSS Feed and Google+ Who knows, the others may charge soon too!
