What to follow on Facebook

Everyone likes to gripe about Edgerank (myself included at times). But let's face it -- it's here to stay.
So if we want to see more posts flowing through our News Feed, we need to find other ways to open up the spigot.
How do you get a more dynamic and vibrant News Feed full of diverse and ever-changing information?
Turns out it's easier than you think. :)
Enter Facebook Interest Lists
quietly launched "Interest Lists" about a year ago -- around the same time Timeline launched.

Before that, lists were mostly used for organizing friends. The new Lists let users include people (including non-friends) and pages.
Keep in mind that once you follow a List, you only see a summary of the List's recent posts in your main News Feed. To get the most out of the List, you need to visit it directly -- by clicking the List's bookmark in your left Facebook navigation.
Edgerank bypassed!
But here's the kicker... ready for it? There is NO Edgerank algorithm applied to Lists!!
Yes you read that correctly.

And the cool thing is the creator of the List gets to decide:
which pages and people are included
what types of posts are shown
For example, on the Lists I created, I set them up to show only status, links, photos and videos -- normal posts, basically. I excluded all the other stuff -- like milestones, birthdays, liked pages, etc.
I've done my best to show you a broad array of Lists from different people. But you'll notice many names repeated -- typically Facebook employees who've created Lists for users.

Social Media Lists on Facebook
I start with the niche I talk about the most: Social Media. If you're in this niche or want to learn how to use social media for your business, follow these Lists!
