Many page admins have been putting a plea out to their fans that they MUST add their page to the Interest list in order to see any posts from that particular fan page. This is not entirely true, as I pointed out in my last blog post.
I have seen post after post of how daunting of a task it can be for folks wanting to do the "right thing" by page admins, and individually adding pages to their interest lists.
In testing this theory out, I found that there are 7 easy steps to creating an Interest List on Facebook.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS ON EACH INDIVIDUAL PAGE!!
Step 1: Find a page that interests you and go to their page. Next to the "Like" button, you will see a settings icon, click on that and a drop down menu will appear
Step 2: Click add to interest lists
During this time, you can also select the privacy settings. Making this public, people can then subscribe to your interest lists and follow it.
You can then access your Interest lists at any time by clicking on them in the left hand menu when you are on your home page. Be aware that they could be hidden under "More".
According to Facebook: "Interest lists are an optional way to organize the content you're interested in on Facebook."
They suggest it because it's an easy way to "Simply click the list's name to see all the recent posts and activity from the Pages and people featured in the list, without overwhelming your main news feed."
