How NOT to Miss Mayo Clinic’s Facebook Posts

MayoClinc-FacebookNewsfeed-v5Mayo Clinic’s daily Facebook posts typically include health and wellness tips, events, information on latest treatment options, research updates and patient stories.

If you’ve “liked” our Mayo Clinic page, you’re probably only seeing a small fraction of these posts. Here’s why:

Most of us have accumulated hundreds of friends on Facebook and have “liked” several businesses or organizations. So at any one time Facebook’s algorithm is choosing from among 1,500 items could put into our News Feeds, and preference is given to posts from friends vs. the Pages you've liked.

As illustrated in the graphic, here are the 3 things you can do right now, to make sure you don’t miss out on our Mayo Clinic Facebook Posts:

  1. Like our Page (certainly you already are?)
  2. Get Notifications when we post to our Timeline
  3. Use the “See First” feature (Note: You can select up to 30 people or Pages to see first.)

We are very thankful for our Facebook community and strive each day to provide you with the best health care related content that is topical and important to you, your friends and your family. Thank you and Like on!
