#1 Facebook is giving certain topics more priority if a user is already spending time on similar content
That means if a user is surfing topics relate to education, he will get more relevant ads and posts related to education. Facebook also saves the search and surfing history of a user by storing cookies and uses it to display relevant topics as per the interest of the user. So as an advertiser, when you boost your business page or related post always make appealing and interesting content that encourages people to like and share your content.
#2 Facebook would like to show content of as many different sources as possible
That is Facebook doesn’t like spamming. It will boost your links when you put it for once or twice in a day. When you post a same link on a page more than twice, chances are Facebook will not display it in the newsfeed. So be at safer side by just putting single link per post per group per day or put an attractive poster and then put links in comments while responding to a user’s inquiry.
#3 Facebook loves to have as many different types of content as possible
That means Facebooks loves creativity but not spam. Present your ads in different variations keeping the optimum size. Use picture image more often than core text. As now Facebook is allowing the only image in a post to boost. Use text only in the description for the best results.
#4 Facebook is giving users the control over their timeline
It is not only Facebook but users also who hate spam. If you post same material repeatedly on a single group, people will start unfollowing your posts. Facebook keeps an eye on user experience what they like or promote. If people do not like your post then high chances are that Facebook will decrease visibility or even can delete it from the newsfeed. So always work for real humans. Facebook is just a tool which is now smart enough to smell people’s taste and interest.
