How to Display the Facebook Top Fan Badge

Have you seen the “Top Fan” badge displayed on Facebook comments and you are wondering how you can have that on your own page?

Facebook Top Fan Badge

In the 2 videos, I take you over to Facebook and show you step by step how to turn on your Top Fan Badges. On video walks you through enabling the Fan Badge using a PC, the other is if you are doing it on mobile.

When Facebook 1st came out with the fan badges you had to have at least 10,000 followers and you had to be running the video page theme. While they no longer have those requirements, some pages still do not have the Top Fan Badge option. There is no "set in stone" reason why those pages don't have it. My best advice is to not worry about it and just keep building your page and increasing engagement.

The Top Fan Badge has very little use on some pages, while on other pages it can encourage more engagement.

Keep in mind that more engagement on your Facebook Page does not mean it will all be quality engagement. The badges can draw in spam, so beware.

I also get ask a lot as to how you can give someone a fan badge and as an owner or and Admin, you cannot choose who gets the badge, that is assigned by a Facebook algorithm.

Now while you cannot assign a badge, you can take one away from someone. So, if you have a person who you don't want to completely block from your page, but they are just leaving a lot of crap comments to keep their badge, you can just eliminate that problem.

You do control if it is even used on your page, you can turn it on and off at any time. Some pages like the badges, while they seem really cheesy on others. This is something you will have to decide on your own.

How to Find Pages Liked on Facebook

Sheryl Granny Facebook pages videoEvery so often it is a good idea to go clean out liked Facebook pages that you no longer want to follow. This also gives you a chance to see all those pages and figure out if you are even seeing their post in your stream.

If a page is inactive you can just unlike it and not have it cluttering your list.

Once you do a search and pull up the list of liked Facebook pages, you may also notice that some pages are still active, but you never see them in your home stream. That can be easily fixed by just engaging on a few of the pages post and that will let Facebook know, to show you more of their post.

I suggest you clean out your list at least once a year.

This search will only take a minute and depending on how many pages you need to engage with will determine how long this cleanup will take.

Gaming Facebook Live with Polls

I bet you have been looking for creative ways to get better reach for your Facebook page and many times when we see something working for others, we then just jump in…but should you?

Facebook makes it hard to get reach for pages and that means you need to buy ads. But, there is someone who always finds a way to game the system.

Facebook Live videos have the best reach of all post on a Facebook Business page and therefore it will be used in any way possible for that boost. Even in ways that may go against Facebook TOS.

The polls you may have seen are just 1 way that people are gaming the system and as we know, Facebook does NOT like it. Although they have laid down the rules from the beginning, they don’t always enforce things until they are ready and that is the case with Live Video.

In this video we talk about a Facebook update where they say they will be enforcing the TOS and putting the kabash on some of the ways people are gaming the system.

If you have taken time to build your page on any platform, you need to understand the risk involved when going against the rules.

Bring Guest Into Your Facebook Live Video

People have really picked up on using Facebook Live video to get their message out, but they wanted more and Facebook is stepping up to give it to them.

Just talking to a camera can get a bit old. It is nice when you have the option to collaborate with someone to broaden your reach and message, but that can be hard especially if your platform of choice is Facebook Live.

Well, now Facebook is going to allow you to add another person into the video. This will make it easier for people who may not feel very comfortable just talking to a camera to finally get the chance to do live video.

Here is my video about the new Facebook Update –->

How will you be including others in your Facebook Live?

Facebook Puts Ads in Videos

Facebook has started testing midroll ads in native videos as they said they would. Let me just say, it wasn’t pretty.

Back in April 2017, Facebook talked about putting ads in Live Stream videos and the casually mentioned adding them to native videos. Now, I seldom watch a livestream on Facebook, so if they have placed any ads on them, I don’t know. But, I have not heard anyone mention it as of yet.

However, I saw an ad in native videos for myself, so we know that is rolling out.
Here are some of my thoughts as to the ad I saw and what you can expect to see soon.

While I do understand that video creators need to make some money, I see a lot of issues with this plan…I talk about some of those in the post with the announcement above.
One way to get people to be more willing to freeboot or steal videos is to reward them with money! Which is just what will happen if Facebook can’t get their shit together on a proper content ID system and a stable way to have your stolen videos taken down.
Guess we will see how this all turns out, but I think it will be a mess, at least for now.

Facebook is going to put ads on live streaming

Facebook live has taken off and many people are using it to get their message out. It has mostly grown because it is easy to use and it has the best reach for business pages, now Facebook will use these videos to make some money.

In this video I talk about who will benefit from having the ads and why I think putting ads on a live stream could be scary as hell. You won’t see me advertising on any live stream unless I personally know the creator!

What will you hear in this video –

Where will the video add be placed?
How long does your Facebook Live need to be to have ads?
How long are the freakin ads going to be?
Can the live streamer make money when an ad is on their video?
Why I think advertisers are crazy to put an advertisement on a live stream!
How will advertisers pick which live stream their ad appears on?

3:00 What other videos will be getting Facebook ads?
Oh boy, do I see another big problem here!
Hint – I do NOT like freebooters! I am pretty tight on copyright!

4:32 Instagram is also looking at adding ads in the story lines!
How much can you make when Instagram puts ads in the stories? LOL!

By the way, this video was originally a Facebook live and I know any video there is somewhat useless after the fact, so it is now a searchable video!
