John,
   I think this is a great idea. I also think Luke is right. I think we need to begin at Turbo meetings with the choise of a name and set up insturctional rules for all of our guidance and new members to know.   Deb

I totally agree Luke.  I did not mean that this should become just a spam group, but instead one where everyone could engage and also share some of the wonderful things that we all are doing.  In doing so we can also reach a larger audience and help each other generate leads and business.  Thanks for the reply, you made some terrific points and I apologize for being a little vague in the first one.

Hello all,

This kind of group could definitely help post get higher rankings, but it could also hurt posts if one is not careful. These algorithms were specifically designed to flag groups like this that automatically share everything that's put towards the group. Spammers and hackers back in the day would start using sites, groups, and even ghost computers to share things like this to boost their Google rankings. All the algorithm designers caught onto this and adapted a system of math to automatically detect such trends. So in theory sharing post boosts their rankings. However, in practice non-organic sharing often leads to weak acceptance and low unique rankings (rankings which reaching new people that may have not heard of you). 

John, your idea is not a bad one. In fact, I agree that we should create a group. However, group members should be lenient in what they share with the group so that it does not become an irrelevant mass of posts in not only the eye's of this FaceBook algorithm, but in the community as well. Additionally, if we want this group to really become a powerful tool, the leaders of this group should help build a community of new members, monitor shared posts, inspire user engagement, and help members connect. 


That's just my two cents. 
What do you all think?

Hi all,

Unfortunately I have not been able to make a meeting in quite a while due to work commitments, but after reading Luke's email and some other things lately I came up with an idea that might help out everybody.   Since Facebook has changed their format quite a bit due to becoming a public company, messages that do not get a lot of activity sink quickly to the bottom where no one really sees them.  Everybody is watched by their algorithm called Edgetracker and if your profile is not high enough then your posts just don't get seen.  I was wondering if anybody would be interested in me forming a group called "Lansing area small business" or something to that matter and having everyone become a member of the group.  When someone posts a message to the group about their business then everyone should "like" and "share".  Not only will this give everyone a lot of activity for their business posts, but it will also multiply their exposure since it will then be put up on everyone's board.  Let me know what you think and also feel free to become friends on facebook  http://www.facebook.com/john.jungwirth.9
