DFM chat tackles how to post to Facebook as it constantly changes its algorithm



Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time. If you got here because a college teacher sent you, *high five cat gif* But seriously how do you guys find this?

Anyway! Today we tackle Facebook. As the algorithm changes —and, boy, does it change?— so does journalists' way of posting and the implications of such changes, like uploading video to Facebook as opposed to just posting a link to the video. "Post great content" is great and all that, but there are lingering questions. Should you sponsor your posts? Should you upload your hard-to-produce videos? Bring your questions, your #realtalk, your links and tips.

The feed is posted below. You can also check out past chats over here.

If you want to chime in, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
