Why Your Facebook Posts Aren't Being Seen
Chad Mendell
Why Your Facebook Posts Aren't Being Seen Every day there are about 55 millions status updates made on Facebook. It would be overwhelming to try and display even a tiny fraction of those posts in your newsfeed. So Facebook uses an algorithm (called EdgeRank) to predict how interesting each post will be to each user.

Elisabeth McMillan
The New Equestrian Customer Magnet - Understanding the Power of Shareable Content According to The Next Web.com, "sharing accounts for 31% of site referral traffic, nearly half of what search engines account for."
