If you have no idea what Iam talking about, let me say that Facebook EdgeRank is a way to analyze what is happening into the News Feed of each Facebook user. The New Feeds on Facebook is a fast way to track what is being posted on every page, group or friends’ wall the user is connected to. Facebook EgdeRank has a little to do with Google Search! Why? Both Google and Facebook want to provide for their user just the best results and although, Google search algorithm be much more complex, Facebook also keep track of your behavior to evaluate what is relevant and what is not. Idon’t want to go deep into the Facebook EdgeRank mathematical formula, but Iwill explain to you the factors present in the algorithm, but being simplistic Ican say that quality and fresh content are very important for the formula. The Elements of Facebook EdgeRank One of the factors measured in the Facebook EdgeRank is affinity. And how can Facebook measure affinity? Well, it’s easier to measure engagement and that is what they do.They evaluate how often a friend interacts with another friend, page or group by commenting, liking and sharing, and when the algorithm notices the pattern it will put that element into the News Feed. Another factor included into Facebook EdgeRank is weight.By the way, they could choose a more appropriate name, couldn’t they? But let’s see… Weight measures the amount of comments, shares and likes a particular post is getting.And here is an interesting fact about this factor:it doesn’t matter if you have never interacted with someone else’s element (friend, page or group) as long as your friends are taking this action, it works like a trend and Facebook can plug that content into your News Feed. The third and final element of the Facebook EdgeRank is called decay.Decay is only a measurement of how long the post was published.And as Google, Facebook also gives priority for new content.Iam not saying that just because a post is brand new it will appear into your news feed, no… this is just one factor of the Facebook EdgeRank algorithm.To understand what will be published into your News Feed, you have to consider the combination of the three factors listed here:affinity, weight and decay.Therefore, if the content is brand new but no one is interacting with it, it is not going to suddenly sprout into your Feeds.This is not the way this works. This was an overview about the Facebook EdgeRank and what is important about this measurement is to notice how your behavior is being tracked.Besides, if we want to captivate an audience and increase our number the interactions, we have to keep our content always fresh. Interesting and new content are the keys to trigger reactions within the community. Keep that in mind. Ihope this was useful, and if you want to help me to share this message, tweet it, like it, share it, and encourage your visitors to do same with your content on Facebook, it will improve your Facebook EdgeRank as well.
