Do you post your new articles to Facebook?

    Do you post your new articles to Facebook?

    I post some of mine and then delete them after twenty-four hours.  Is Facebook a good place to market your new articles?

    I do not know.  I am new to this and am unclear on many things.  Have you made any money doing this?  Has Facebook benefited you in any way?

      There is no money in putting your article on Facebook; it merely showcases your work to your friends, but unless you have a million friends, it doesn't really bring the traffic to your hub.  Just an ego boost.

    I gave up on Facebook when I found it next to impossible to amend, update or delete information entered when I first started. It's way easier amending and updating here and on my other sites (My Book Buzz, Webeden, Twitter, LinkedIn).
    Besides they allow all manner of rants and abusive language - including those made by Lee Rigby's killer, Muslim convert Michael Adebolajo and his abetter Michael Adebowale. They failed to pass on the information to either MI5 or MI6, who had somehow lost contact with the pair. Nor has Facebook shown any sign of apology for the omission.
    So I can't be bothered to use Facebook.

    You mean putting a link of your Hubpage article in Facebook? I mostly do it. Roughly 1% of my traffic comes from Facebook (too small a figure, but my contact list in Facebook is hopelessly small and most of my contacts may not be interested in reading my articles!).

    If you mean posting an article itself in facebook, well, I don't do it.

      Yes, simply posting a "press release", not the article itself.  I do get views when I do this but perhaps not my best target market.  On the other hand, perhaps reviewing the common interest of my contacts may prove valuable.  Thanks for the feedback

    There is a FB page, also, called Hot HUbbers, where the hubpages community who join can post their work or another hubbers. People often share on the FB pages. I share my stuff on FB from time to time. It will get you more views and it's nice to receive comments from your FB followers and friends. Comments are often helpful in many ways.

      So good to know about this!  I usually just announce that I have published an article on my own page. Now I'll do it on the HP page. :0)

    I personally have come to realize that it's very difficult to get Facebook's audience to engage. For this reason, I have stopped posting articles to Facebook.
