This news won’t effect many on my FList, except those who use WordPress to blog and Share those posts to Facebook via a plug-in.
Since I am not actively publishing directly to Facebook now (I still skim it for reading, but if I want to say something I post to my WordPress site and then link it into Facebook) this doesn’t affect me much. I’m actually enjoying a much more toned-down Facebook experience these days.
But there are a few people I know that might soon say, “Hey, why didn’t this post?” To you I say, here’s why.
Of the remaining available options left, I think linking is the better of the two. I know Facebook wants to keep you engaged in their platform and have a Page will give you better Facebook related metrics. But in this day and age Facebook is feeling more and more like a necessary evil and less like a Go-To platform. I spend more time engaging on Instagram. At least (for now) that platform feels more like a Real-Time experience.
