Friday Facebook Feline FAIL

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Did you hear that the Facebook is going to make it so hardly any of our friends can find us? Can they really do that???



KATIE:  Wha-What??? 



WAFFLES:  Seriouslies, Boss. They're going to make it so that the Facebook Pages for brands and blogs and businesses and stuff will eventually only be able to reach 1 purr-cent of the people who like them... unless we pay Facebook lots and lots of green papers. 

One purr-cent doesn't sound like very many purr-cents. 



KATIE:  One percent means most people won't even see THIS much of me. That's blogosphere robbery. 

WAFFLES:  So what do we do, Boss?

KATIE:  Well, the smartest thing to do is be proactive. We should invite our friends and readers that come here through Facebook to subscribe to our blog via email ...just in case they miss our daily Facebook post and link to our blog.

Everyday when we publish a new blog post, our subscriber friends receive a nice email from us containing the whole post, photos and a quick link to our site. It arrives in their email inbox the same time every night, when most cats are sleeping. That way when they wake up they can have their breakfast with a side of GLOGIRLY.



WAFFLES:  That's even better than a side of BACON! ...sort of.

KATIE:  There's no annoying ads, no spam and we never ever share their emails with anyone. Never ever. So Waffles, why don't you ask our friends who haven't yet subscribed, especially those that come here through Facebook, to consider signing up.

WAFFLES:  Ok um, everybuddy? If you want to wake up with me and the Boss everyday, please just fill out the little form below my picture. I promise it will be fun.

Double-pinky-paw promise.

  1. Done.

    Facebook has almost outlived its usefulness as a "free" networking/social site. I'm thinking it may soon be time to say bye-bye.

  2. We already do! Although Allie's not sure she can handle waking up to Faraday *and* the orange crush. (MOL!)

    We're hearing more and more about google + (*sigh* MORE stuff to learn how to do?!? We're tired just THINKING about it!)

  4. That is a very important PSA! I am going to do the same on my blog - and on my Facebook page too, while people and kitties can still see it!

  9. FB really stinks sometimes. Somehow I think that eventually a better way for blogs reach their audience will crop up. I've got you guys on Bloglovin' so I won't miss out on anything.

  16. We follow everybody through Feedly rather than email, but we do visit every day even if we don't comment every time, (we do most times though).
    Mum doesn't post on FB much but looks in most days but she keeps up to date mostly with the blogs.

  17. We always see you guys too! The FB crew keeps new and improving stuff so that it is only good for them, not for the users.

  19. See? That's EXACTLY why I never worried about the amount of effort I put into Facebook.......I REFUSE to pay them a DIME.............

  20. Whoa! Katie, people get the email with your blog in the morning?? The email from my blog doesn’t come in until 4 pm. By that time nobody cares. Hope everybuddy subscribes to you. This is really gonna affect Pop cause his department has to make sure their social media numbers are high and if noone can see their page, heads might roll.

  21. Facebook isn't going to stop me from seeing you two. I wouldn't pay them a dime! I always see you in my feed. I think I am active enough to keep you there and if I am not then there is a little button on the left side that says "Page Feeds" and I visit that many times a day because its all my pages I love. I think I subscribe to the newsletter already if not I subscribe some other way. Whether I make a comment or not , I visit daily. Love my Waffles, Katie and Glogirly. It brightens my day

  23. Everytime facebook 'improves' it makes things worse... Luckily I have a link to you right on my blog sidebar and can find you every day from there! And on the cat blogosphere!

  24. We have you guys locked into our reader and we hope but we know better that doesnt' change. We are not surprised at FB. *sigh*

  25. Waffles and Katie. I'm so confused. Don't the big people at Facebook already have enough green papers? Why do they need more from the likes of us? Stupid decision on their part.
    We wake up with you every day, so that's a wrap.

  30. Mommy actually quit Facebook a few years back. She did not like the whole Facebook attitude about privacy and other stuff, and then when they shut down my FB page she was really incensed!
    Great Post!

  32. We have you in our Feedly feed ... so never miss a post. Facebook is really treading on thin ice with a lot of their subscribers...
