Facebook EdgeRank Explained [infographic]

Do you know about Facebook EdgeRank?

It’s the algorithm that determines which fans see your Facebook Page posts.

I admit, some days it drives me crazy.

I can have one post that’s seen by thousands, and another by barely a hundred. (Currently I have 762 fans of my Facebook Page).

Now, you probably think ALL your fans should see your posts, but considering the amount of posting on Facebook, that’s just not possible. So the EdgeRank algorithm determines which posts are seen by whom – assuming they’re online at or near the time Facebook places the posts in their news feeds.

    Hi Louise!

    I haven’t heard of Edge rank till I read your post. From my experience time of post is the main factor which determines the number of audience. And yeah, as you stated affinity and weight also has some roles in this. Simply, everyone knows that a multimedia element can convert more than a couple of sentences.

    I really got some useful info here, thanks a lot.
