I support our troops, I love Jesus and my mom, and I don’t need Buddha to deliver me a bunch of money, so for God’s sake, stop making me Like posts about it on Facebook!
In this episode of Lazy and Stupid, I take some time to vent about a content trend that has been taking over Facebook for a while now. It involves an unethical practice by which brands post content that plays on peoples’ emotions in a negative way simply for the purpose of increasing page engagement which, in turn, convinces Facebook to display more of their content to their fans.
I’ll explain why you, as a business owner or social media marketer, should avoid this form of content marketing, as well as how you can achieve the same result without exploiting your Facebook fans.
