Don’t Engage

Keep in mind … your Facebook news feed, isn’t designed to show you what cool things your family and friends are doing.  It is a monetizing device for Facebook to generate more engagement.  They want you to spend MORE TIME looking at posts, responding to rants and otherwise glancing over at their sidebar of advertisers.  […]
