Did you know that everyday I post between 25 and 45 deals, coupons or ads to Southern Savers?  Yeah that’s a lot.  The top deals I try to share on our Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages as well so you won’t miss them.

Starting last Friday Facebook decided to make a huge change that impacted every business page.  You may not have even noticed, but your Facebook feed went silent from businesses as Facebook now wants businesses to pay to reach their followers.  Sadly I can’t afford it and am much to frugal to even want to.

There are a few things you can do to keep seeing Southern Savers updates on Facebook though.  The steps are different based on what version of Facebook you have (bet you didn’t even know there were other versions).

If you have the old white background newsfeed take these steps and you’ll get all of our updates.

  1. Head to the Southern Savers Facebook page.
  2. Hover over “Liked” and click on “settings.”
  3. Select “All Updates”

If you have the new Facebook with blue background newsfeed…

Your options are limited and well you need to learn to start to look somewhere else for updates.  Facebook is basically giving you multiple feeds and you’ll select which group you want to look at.

First head to the Southern Savers Facebook page.
Make sure that you Like AND Follow it.     Screen shot 2013-12-11 at 12.54.10 PM

Then on your newsfeed in the right hand top corner you’ll see “News Feed” which is a drop down.  One option is “Pages and Public Figures” you’ll find all your brands and other business page updates in there…  For now we are stuck in there unless Facebook decides to give up on forcing companies to pay.  So you need to just remember to check it.

You’ll also want to check in on the “All Friends” as you have long lost friends that Facebook decided weren’t cool and stuck in there…

More Ways to Stay up On Deals

You really don’t have to rely on Facebook… there are lots of other ways to stay in the know.

I have another fun way to stay in the loop that was just submitted to the app store today… it will take a couple weeks though till it is approved.

      Sorry if the question has already been asked before, but are you working on a Southern Savers app? Would love to see one in the Google Play store!

      • The android app should be out in a few days, I submitted it last night :) and the Iphone app will be a few weeks later (they are much slower on approvals).

          Yay!!! Can’t wait. Thanks for all you do, Jenny! ( :

            Can’t wait…in the meantime I use Greader to keep up with everything! Now if you can get coupons.com to print from android it would be amazing!

      I don’t have either version, apparently. I have a white background, but when I hover over “Like” I only have “Get Notifications, Add to Interest List and Unlike.” The settings button doesn’t have anything that would help, either. Also, my “news feed” button isn’t a drop down like the versions with the blue background.

      I’m sorry they’re making it so hard for businesses.

    • Marge

      I have the white background and was able to change it from “most updates” to “all updates”. Thanks for the instructions!

      • I’m glad it worked for you!

      I stopped FB a year ago but can’t wait for the Android app. Then I can take you with me to the store. Won’t we have fun!

      I can’t tell if I’ll still get the feeds, I really hope so! I don’t have a smart phone and would miss these feeds to remind me to check the new grocery lists etc as Jenny puts them on her awesome website!

    • lovmydoxies

      How do you find out when there are updates to Facebook? Do they post to a blog or something? Just curious where the information comes from!

    • Toni

      I am liking it and following it, but I do not have anything on my page remotely like what Jenny describes and pictures above. I have no Newsfeed and no Pages and Public Figures, not in a drop down menu or anywhere else. I have a blue background.
      I also do not have the options Jenny has described for those who have the white background newsfeed.
      Has anyone else encountered this?

      • Toni

        Let me add to what I wrote above, though, to say that I just realized that the southernsavers feeds have not gone silent on my facebook page! At least not yet. :)
