Death to Engagement Bait

Who isn’t sick and tired of those spammy posts on Facebook trying to trick users to engage with them in order to gain a higher reach. But there is hope on the horizon!

Facebook have announced today that they will change their algorithm to provide better user experience by putting an end to the sneaky Engagement Bait which many Facebook page owners utilise in order to get more likes, shares and comments which then lead to higher organic reach – consequently, posts that use this tactic will be shown less in the ‘News Feed’.

What is Engagement Bait?

Poor quality posts that don’t serve any purpose apart from getting you to ‘Like’, ‘Share’ or ‘Comment’ in order to artifically gain reach are classified as Engagement Bait. Examples are ‘Vote Baiting’, ‘React Baiting’, ‘Share Baiting’, ‘Tag Baiting’, ‘Comment Baiting’.
