    [Comments] Social Media Updates: July
    The second  Facebook algorithm change considers when people Like or comment on a post. With this new update, Facebook is going to begin looking at  when  people are choosing to like, comment and share:  If people are engaging with the post right after it is posted, and not as much a few hours later, this suggests that the post was most interesting at the time it was posted, but potentially less interesting at a later date. If your audience regularly shares your content with their friends – who in turn like and comment on it – you will notice less of an impact.

    Answer your own question in comments, specifically ask people to answer (friends, influencers, regular commenters), promote the discussion. Because they’re discussion starters, I would really challenge you to interact with them, to leave comments, to like them, to share them if possible. would send them a personal email saying thanks for the comment, just want to let you know I’ve responded to your comment. would give them the link to the post that they had commented on and invite them to go back and have another look. would be the first commenter.
