The whole way it works is complicated and, to be honest, a bit nonsensical because unlike with traditional media where you can know how many people bought the publication but not how many people actually read the bit about your business, you can measure exactly how many people clicked on a link about your post, how long they spent reading that post and what they did after they read it (comments, clicked away, clicked on a link to the business etc…). One of the biggest challenges for businesses is how to determine the ROI (return on investment) with bloggers. The impact of search.

As Facebook is a lot more like a stream these days, I note that others tend to comment at varied times of day according to where they live. I’ve done a lot to interact with the people who comment back and forth on that community. This is how we do it in blog commenting. I’ve been reinvesting in my efforts to understand and use Facebook. My first big experiment has been to build a Blog Topics Facebook community to accompany my subscription service. What have I learned? Be Consistent.
