See Your Favorite Brand Pages in Your Newsfeed

Want to make sure you see updates from some of your favorite Facebook brand pages? Facebook has made some changes to brand pages with Promoted Posts, which means you only see us in your newsfeed if you regularly interact with our page and we have to pay to share with to the rest of our current fans. If you still want to see unpaid from us, there are a few things you should do to make it more likely we’ll appear in your newsfeed.

Select “Show in Newsfeed”

When you “like” a page, this should automatically select, but just to be sure, head over to our pages, hover over the “liked” button, and make sure “show in newsfeed” is selected.

Interact with Our Page

The more you comment and like posts on our page, the more likely you are to see our posts. The higher your interaction, the more Facebook’s algorithm knows our page is a place you like to hear from. Upload photos, add your own posts to our wall, comment on others and just join in the fun!

Add Us to an Interest List

Add pages you want to view to an interests list. You can organize brand pages into lists similar to Twitter and Pinterest so you can view updates from those brands you want to see easily from your sidebar. This doesn’t necessarily mean all our posts will come into your newsfeed, but you can ensure you don’t miss a post from us by narrowing brands into categories you check as lists.

  1. Visit our page and click the arrow on the side, and select “+ add to interest list.”
  2. It will then prompt you to either add this to a list (if you’ve already created one) or to create a new list.
  3. Select the pages you’d like to add and name your list. Here we created a list for all the Steal Sites to view at a glance.
  4. Now from the left side of your newsfeed you can click on your list to view all the posts from the pages you added.
Hopefully that helps you see the posts you’re looking for! We know it’s frustrating to not see all the posts from brand pages you choose to “like” but we hope this will help make a difference in seeing what you want to from us.

We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape | Monday Card Madness #88

I remember the first time I saw We R Memory Keepers Washi Tape I was at Winter CHA (Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show) and I truly wanted to somehow finagle some of the gorgeous tape into my luggage. Alas, it was a no go as it wasn’t even available for purchase yet, so imagine my delight when I found out that ScrapbookSteals would be featuring the whole array of tapes as today’s steal!

And what perfect timing to be featuring an amazing We R Memory Keepers product as we are thrilled to be teaming up with them for their Operation Write Home card drive to show our support of the troops stationed overseas. It’s for a great cause and there are some pretty sweet prizes to be had, so you might just want to check it out!

I decided to do my part in helping We R Memory Keepers reach their goal of collecting 50,000 cards and created my initial cards this week using some red and blue tapes.

On this card I cut stars out of the red paper and then backed the two smaller stars with the blue washi tape.

I kept to the patriotic theme with this card, and again backed behind the star with blue washi, as well as a red houndstooth strip across the middle.

Next I decided to make a card using the washi flower tutorial by Misty Buck.

I had fun adding a splash of peach to this card in addition to a row of turquoise houndstooth washi.

I finished up my washi card making spree with this simple card using strips of washi to create the background of the card.

We are also pleased to be teaming up We R Memory Keepers Operation Write Home card drive for a fantastic giveaway! We have a lovely Red White and Blue Stack Pack that will be given to one random winner who participated in the Operation Write Home card drive.

To enter to win, all you have to do is:

We will have a random drawing from all of the card drive participants. The winner will be announced on our July 30th Monday Card Madness blog post. (Don’t forget! Post your cards to a regular Monday Card Madness blog post to be eligible for our regular monthly drawing.)

Let’s do our part to help collect 50,000 cards! I’ve done my part to bring them 5 cards closer. :)

Good luck!
