There have been a number of social media-related changes announced that will potentially impact sites like this adversely. The good news is there are ways of dealing with it – but they require your help and support.
Dealing with the New Facebook Changes
Facebook recently announced changes to the way users will consume their news feed.
Over the next few weeks, Facebook’s news feed will start showing fewer news articles, and less marketing content and ads… Instead, users should start seeing more vacation videos from their friends, photos of their nephew’s college graduation, and other more family-friendly posts about the people they know.
One of the consequences of this is even if you have liked the Israellycool Facebook page, you are still unlikely to see new blog posts in your feed unless you go to the Following drop-down menu and select See First:
And if you haven’t already liked the page, please do! Besides being a great way to keep up to date with the most recent posts, there is also a commenting community of its own there, and I sometimes post things there not on the blog.
Dealing with the New YouTube Changes
YouTube recently announced that they are changing the the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers.
In the last year, my videos have been watched close to 8,000 hours! However, the channel gained only 304 subscribers, well below the 1,000 threshold.
Please subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already.
As usual, I thank you for your support.
