ZOE Alerts!

Last week, I walked readers through a step-by-step process to subscribe to my ZombieOrpheus Interest List on Facebook. This week, I am going to hit on another basic tweak that will a) put ZOE posts in your Facebook news feed and b) send you notifications whenever ZOE posts something*. This time in four fast steps:

1) Sign into your Facebook account

2) Go to ZOE’s page:

3) Hover over [Liked]

4) Check “Get Notifications” and “Show in News Feed”

This works for both Profile Accounts (hover over [Friends]) and any other pages. Now when ever ZOE posts the latest, greatest piece of news on Facebook, you'll get a notification like this:

Happy following!

* Facebook often filters how much content posted on a page gets distributed to ‘likers’. My understanding is that only about 1 in 10 see a post. With these two tweaks, you are more likely to get notifications, but I’ve discovered that it’s not 100%.
