How and is it worth it to get traffic from Facebook? What I have been doing is "sharing it" thru the share button, is that the way? I don't get much traffic from there but have many "friends" ---Looking for feedback --Thanks!
I use FB to set up my RSS feeds to my Hubs and interact with groups that I'm interested in..on FB. It's not the greatest source I agree but I have got a few clicks.
Facebook Traffic is 'warm marketing'. Warm marketing is advertising to friends, family and colleagues. It is called warm marketing because you may get a few sales but they will dry up quickly.
When I post my hubs to Facebook I'm not hoping that my friends/family are the ones to click ads and such on my page, but what I'm hoping for is a support group, people to repost, retweet, whatever they have to do to spread that info to people on their page. If I can get 1 person on my network out of the hundreds to start a trickle down through reposts, thats hundreds upon hundreds more strangers out there that could possibly see my work.
I often join or follow groups/pages on related topics and then post the link to one of my articles. For instance I posted a hublink about funny retail comebacks to a group called "I have worked in retail and thus have lost all faith in humanity."
Putting a funny link on a discussion board with some background information, that regularly gets replies, will often see you get continuing traffic for quite a while...
Do you read all your friends FB posts or Twitter tweets?
Most of us do not. We may notice whatever is near the top when we check in and once in a while we may go look at recent activity for a certain person - usually someone very close to us; I check up on my daughters and my cousin much more often than I dig back into casual friends and acquaintances.
I put stuff in FB and Twitter for the very few who might really be interested but mostly for our great god Google, whose appetite for everything is never sated and who greedily will consume every morsel offered.
I have my HubPages profile link in my email signature, so every time that I send an email out, friends see it - and if they don't delete the signature and forward my email to someone else, they see it too, and so on. So definitely put it into your email signature.
Ya! Facebook is the one way to get traffic but not get much benefits from it. It depends on how long your network or groups.

Curious to know if anyone in the community shares their hubs on Facebook? And if so, has it helped to promote your hubs? Thanks
