    How effectively do you use facebook to promote your hubs?

    I've found that self promotion on Facebook doesn't work very well.  I do get lots of Facebook views from time to time...but those are coming from people I do not know at other words, the Facebook views I get come from folks that don't know me, but apparently liked something I'd published.

    I seem to do pretty well with Facebook. I post links to my new stuff not only on my own "wall" but on the walls of some friends who are aware of my wanna-be writer status and who enjoy lookin' at my stuff. (One friend even "shares" my links on a regular basis, which is nice).

    I also belong to a number of "Groups" on Facebook that pertain to my Hubs' subject matter (hard rock/metal music) so I post the links there too.

    Occasionally if I write about a particular group/band, I'll put the link on their official FB page as well. Queensryche actually thanked me for the support and said I did a "well written" article on them. That was a nice ego stroke. smile

    I am yet to discover how effective facebook is, but so far it played a big % of my views (which are not many). I post on my wall and in some groups. I also opened a writer fan page and I am sharing articles there. I also share twitter and pinterest - which posts back to facebook as well. If you have a target audience is great - e.g. you created  a group or a well-targeted fan page. Otherwise, it's just about the good will and interest of your friends list. Good luck!

    Facebook works rather well for me. Like FatFreddysCat, I belong to groups whose members like one of the subject matters I cover; and some friends like the other subject matters, and they are good enough to re-post some of my Hubs. I think it's a good avenue to get your work out there, but not the only one. I've had some luck with StumbleUpon too.
