How to Get Facebook Notifications

I thought I would talk for just a moment about our Facebook page. Not too long ago Facebook has changed how you receive updates from your favorite sites. They no longer appear in your news feed unless you request them to be there or the business pays a fee to Facebook to show them to their followers. 

A way to still receive notifications from our site and/or your other favorites is to go to their Facebook page click on the button Liked and a drop down menu will appear. The first option is Get Notifications. If you check this box every time that business posts something on their Facebook page you will receive a notification. Just like when you receive notifications when someone has commented on a picture of yours, wrote on your wall, or liked something you've posted. 

The second way to get notifications is to click on the Add to Interest Lists. This will then ask you to create a title for your list (or you can make several lists) and the list it will appear off to the left of your Facebook home page. Now they will appear in your News Feed or you can click on the Interest Lists you've made and see what your favorite business has been up to.
