Again and again, I’ve seen this question resurface. Is it possible to get every person who is your friend on Facebook to see all of your posts?
YOUR NEWS FEED
Note that some of these tips are best accessed on a computer, not your phone. When you open Facebook it takes you to the main page which displays your news feed. Facebook uses an algorithm to build this page for you and display what you see here. The news feed is continually updating to show you your friends’ posts, which means, no – you won’t see every single post from every single friend. So everyone who is your friend most likely won’t see every single one of your Facebook posts on their news feed.
However, you can change your news feed preferences. If you’re looking to see more posts from specific groups or friends, you can go to the top left part of the page and edit preferences.
Your friends can, however, see your posts if they go to your Facebook page.
You can also set who sees your posts on your page. In the photo below, I have set this specific post to public, which means everyone (not just my friends) can see it. I can change the settings though to show the post to only my friends or just specific friends. You can set this option while you’re building your post or you can go to a post and change it after, as shown below.
If you do want to set preferences so only certain friends will see your posts, you will have to go to your friend list and assign them specific labels. Let’s say you only want CLOSE FRIENDS to see certain content. You will need to go and tell Facebook who those CLOSE FRIENDS are. After you change the label for those friends, you can then share a post and select CLOSE FRIENDS and only those friends will see that post on your timeline.
If you want to get more people in general to see your posts then another option is to pay for it using Facebook Ads. A more common example of this would be if a professional Facebook page wanted to get more people to become aware of their page and product and so paid to boost one or more of their posts.
Or if you want to be sure specific people see your post, you don’t have to pay you can just tag those friends or people in your post or share your post to their timeline. Both of these options should notify them of your post and the post may also be displayed on their page depending on how their preferences are set.
