Facebook Algorithm Change: What Marketers Need to Know

Few things inspire more chewed fingernails and cold sweats among ecommerce marketers than Facebook algorithm changes. When Zuck & Co. whisper those dreaded words – algorithm changes – it catches the attention of every business that uses Facebook. And in 2018, just about every business uses Facebook. Which is why you get headlines like, “Facebook’s Algorithm Is Apocalyptic for Brands.” Apocalyptic? Well, that seems a bit strong, but Facebook algorithm changes definitely matter. After all, Facebook sets the rules of engagement for reaching your customers (and potential customers) on the biggest social media platform in the world. So we need to know what’s going on with that algorithm. This post will go over exactly that. First, we’ll look at the most recent Facebook algorithm changes. Then we’ll identify common themes that emerge in lots of Facebook algorithm changes, and go over tips for how to survive new and future changes. var wbogypgpacspe9mj,wbogypgpacspe9mj_poll=function(){var r=0;return function(n,l){clearInterval(r),r=setInterval(n,l)}}();!function(e,t,n){if(e.getElementById(n)){wbogypgpacspe9mj_poll(function(){if(window[‘om_loaded’]){if(!wbogypgpacspe9mj){wbogypgpacspe9mj=new OptinMonsterApp();return wbogypgpacspe9mj.init({“u”:”17210.432895″,”staging”:0,”dev”:0,”beta”:0});}}},25);return;}var d=false,o=e.createElement(t);,o.src=””,o.async=true,o.onload=o.onreadystatechange=function(){if(!d){if(!this.readyState||this.readyState===”loaded”||this.readyState===”complete”){try{d=om_loaded=true;wbogypgpacspe9mj=new OptinMonsterApp();wbogypgpacspe9mj.init({“u”:”17210.432895″,”staging”:0,”dev”:0,”beta”:0});o.onload=o.onreadystatechange=null;}catch(t){}}}};(document.getElementsByTagName(“head”)[0]||document.documentElement).appendChild(o)}(document,”script”,”omapi-script”); What is a Facebook Algorithm Change? Facebook is fueled by god-knows-how-many algorithms. Algorithms for finding friends, playing games, and attending nearby events. When marketers say “Facebook algorithm changes,” however, they are talking about the News Feed algorithm. That’s the queen bee algorithm controlling who sees your content and ads in their News Feeds.

If you’re running an ecommerce business, we cannot stress how important traffic is. After all, everybody who visits your store is a potential customer. So, if you can bring in a steady stream of potential buyers to your store, it’s only a matter of time until you start making sales. But, unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that you’ll generate traffic from the day that you launch your store. It doesn’t matter if you’ve spent hours designing every detail of your store, or if you’ve carefully curated a list of compelling products – these are great, but they don’t drive traffic alone. You’ll need to use the ace up your sleeve – marketing – to drive traffic to your store. And the success of your marketing campaigns will likely define the success of your store. By now you might be wondering what the most effective way to market your brand is. Many dropshippers opt to use Facebook advertising as one of their main marketing channels. Why? There are more than 2.2 billion monthly active users on Facebook, and you can tap into that wealth of potential buyers with your marketing campaigns.
