Dear Pole Bloggers, Facebook Is Screwing You

Webmaster
Apr 27, 2014
The content industry is faced with a dilemma. Facebook is reducing your organic impact, the number of people who see your posts when shared to your page or your timeline.

In October of 2013 if you shared a post on your Facebook page roughly twelve percent of your subscribers would see that post come through. New surveys are showing that organic impact is down to less than six percent and insiders are stating, point-blank, that Facebook is planning on dropping that to somewhere between one and two percent by the end of the year.

Okay, thats a lot of numbers and statistics, what does it all really mean in the terms of a hypothetical Facebook page with one thousand followers?



In October of 2013 roughly 120 followers of that one-thousand follower page would see a new post in their timeline. This was a healthy number that had a reasonable chance of generating enough shares to creating viral growth.

At this point in time that same post on the same page would only be seen by fifty to sixty people, effectively cutting your chances of viral growth in half.

By the end of the year our hypothetical, one-thousand follower page will only be sharing its contents to the timelines of ten people.

Only ten people will see a post… Let’s let that sink in a bit. One-hundred-twenty people down to ten people.

Facebook wants your money, and to get it they are reducing the impact of your posts so that you will pay for a better effect.

This is where StudioVeena.Com comes in. We want the pole community to thrive, and the information that you create is a huge part of that. We have thousands of pole dancers visiting our site every day, and we don’t throttle your content views.

Please share your blogs on StudioVeena.Com. You can do this in a StudioVeena.Com blog or in a new discussion post. Simply post the first few paragraphs of your blog entry followed by a link to the full blog entry. It is important that you post this “summary” of your blog so that it can be found by people searching our site for the topics you cover.

The best part about this? Not only will your blog entry be shared with everyone who visits StudioVeena.Com your link will be shared in our newsletter that goes out to tens of thousands of pole dancers EVERY DAY.

That is a lot of FREE traffic for your content, and we expect nothing in return.

So please feel free to try it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

SkullpixieWell screw that lol I ain't paying FB anything lol I'm not a big fan of FB I would rather post my vids here then share them but not too fused on who likes them on FB I value people's opinion here more than anything because everyone here knows how difficult pole is and appreciates even the smallest achievements during a polers journey ;) SV rules!!!

kesariniGreat post. I have a facebook page for my dog with 3500 followers. The number of people who see our posts are down to 200-300 these days from the usual 1000

CrazyKostersStupid Facebook! I did however find this blog on my fb news feed lol.
Apr 27, 2014
WebmasterCrazyKosters you found it on your Facebook news feed because I paid for it to be there. We've had to start funding our page more and more to make sure people see what we post. Very few of our posts get any visibility if they aren't boosted. You would be surprised what it costs for us to make sure that a post is seen by most of our followers.

This is the impetus for this post. We have some funds available for marketing, were as the pole bloggers are mostly doing their work gratis. I would like for them to be able to capitalize off what we've built and continue to build, because reinventing the wheel is very, very expensive at this point.

Meg SmithI do understand why FB are doing it huge multimillion pound company's where using Facebook to reach millions of potential customers and paying zero for the advert so to speak - Saying that im not sure fb has gone about it the right way - But that all irrelevant when you have SV :-D one thing is i think a few bloggers may make a tiny bit of money off it through adds, only reason i could see them not moving :-)

Webmastermegsmith - We want to help the bloggers get more traffic to their existing sites, we are encouraging them to post summaries here followed by links to the full blog post. They can't do anything but win since its just loads of free traffic.

Meg SmithI should really not skim read! My apologies - Its 10000% win win then! Ignore me its was 6.30am in uk! You know you got an SV addiction when you need to check at that time!

CrazyKostersI agree with your post webby! I wasn't saying that to say that it showed up in my facebook and what you said had no merit. Not at all! I use facebook but I have lots of issues with it besides the way they handle these issues. Just saying that it did show up whether you paid or not. Matter of fact,not sure how often you guys post on your page but this is the only post i have received from studioveena's page in a while! I am going to start blogging a little and making my own tutorials as i gain more knowledge about fitness and pole. I post more vids and all pole stuff here. Only some is on youtube and facebook. I have said in another post that I will continue to use studioveena and you have a lifelong loyal customer so far!! I tell anyone interested in pole about this site and got my cousin signed up and she even bought a pole from here :)

WebmasterCrazyKosters you have been a great member of the site and I know you didn't mean anything by it. I was simply taking the opportunity of your statement to demonstrate why I wrote the post. Thank-you so much for being here we love your contributions.

roniaI noticed that about FB too. I will definitely move more of my blogging activities here to Studio Veena.
Apr 28, 2014
WebmasterRonia, just to be clear since I have received questions. While we love it when people post full blogs on our site if you already have a blog on another service you are welcome to post a summary and a link to the full blog post. Just so there is enough content to provide our search engine with something to grab onto, which serves you further if someone is searching for the content or title of your blog.

Lina SpiralyneI had no idea it works this way. However, more than once I've noticed that I've missed posts from athletes I follow, even though I've been quite sure I was browsing through my feed at times when they were posted.

This could possibly explain why one of the athletes, who has 12.0000 followers, get normally about 100 likes on her pictures. That's just 1% of the whole fan club.

One thing I didn't get was if this goes only for the pages that you need to "Like", or if the same selection happens for post on private facebook accounts as well? Thanks for the info Webmaster.

Lina Spiralyne*12.000 followers it is!
Apr 28, 2014
WebmasterHow it affects friends is dictated by a much more complex algorithm. There can be much more or much less organic exposure on a personal account.
Apr 28, 2014
Lina SpiralyneThanks. It makes sense. I'd assume that if someone likes my posts a lot I will continue to turn up frequently in their feed, and they will probably turn up in mine. Giving likes should pay off, just like IRL. And then it probably has more parameters. Just guessing now though.

adAstraIn the past I have submitted a blog summary linking to my blog post to the blog section here on StudioVeena; it was deleted. The explanation I received was that, "Our blogs on the site are meant to provide content not to redirect users elsewhere." Am I correctly reading that bloggers can now post a summary rather than syndicate the whole post? When did this change?
Apr 28, 2014
WebmasterWe've always allowed a summary followed by a link. The key is that the summary must be at least two paragraphs.
Apr 28, 2014
adAstraThe summary I had submitted then was three paragraphs, but thank you for the clarification now.
Apr 28, 2014
WebmasterIt may have been a mistake on our part we've gone through our growing pains over time. If so I apologize.

VeenaHere is a discussion I posted offering suggestions for getting the most out of sv [www.studioveena.com]

Kobajo84I'm not sure I'm following the whole blog post and summary? Is this to be written in the status box or in a blog on the site?
Apr 30, 2014
WebmasterKobajo the best way is to use either a new StudioVeena blog or a discussion (I recommend blog) and place the title of your offsite blog as the title of your SV blog, then place the first couple paragraphs of your offsite blog followed by a link that will take the reader to the full blog offsite. Our software will automatically format the link to look nice and you should gain some good traffic. I would not recommend using a status update as they are not included in the nightly update and therefore won't get the additional visibility of being mailed to all the active subscribers on your mailing list.

I've been a member of Studio Veena for years. I've tried other online pole lessons, but nothing compares to Studio Veena. Tip: You can save lots of money by purchasing a year's worth of lessons instead of monthly!
