How Facebook is affecting our minds [Infographic]


How-Facebook-is-affecting-our-minds-700With 2.41 billion monthly active users as of June 2019, Facebook is still the biggest social media platform around. This isn’t a surprise considering how Facebook is designed to be addictive in many ways. Here are some ways Facebook is affecting our minds.

4 Ways Facebook is affecting our Minds

1) A notification — whether’s it a for a like, react, share, or comment — serves as a dopamine hit especially if it’s a positive social interaction. Each hit adds to one’s addictive compulsion, affecting the brain the same way meth, crack, and heroin do.

2) Veteran netizens have different brains compared to newbie netizens, but it doesn’t take much to alter the brain in the first place. Activity in the prefrontal cortex increases in newbies after spending only five hours on the internet, particularly on social media. The more time spent online, the more the brain atrophies.

3) So-called internet addicts develop smaller brain areas for processing emotion, motor control, memory, speech, and sensory input. The size difference is around 10 to 20 percent smaller compared to non-addicts.

4)  Internet addiction is a real thing, and it’s recognized as an official disorder in China, Taiwan, and Korea. As many as a third of teenagers in these countries are addicted to the internet.

The internet is a wonderful tool, but like any other tool, it can either destroy you or empower you depending on how you wield it. Use it wisely!

  • Organic reach has declined to 6% according to Ogilvy
  • Ogilvy also reports that a drop of 49% since 2013

Luckily, there are 5 steps that you can take to improve your organic reach.

1. Employ Facebook Strategies That Fortune 500  Companies Use

Let people see what goes on inside the company. Always be open and honest. Be readily available for customers to reach out and interact with the company. Demonstrate the best customer service possible to make the customer’s experience pleasant.

2. Post at Non-Peak Times

When there is little being shared at the time,  a company’s content is more likely to stand out.  Facebook Insights can help you understand your audience and you will want to watch for those times when your fans are online that others are not pumping out content.

3. Share Original Images

Original pictures that are taken behind-the-scenes are more likely to be viewed and shared with others. People WANT this!  Don’t be afraid of it.

4. Connect with the Audience

Companies shouldn’t focus solely on promoting their means, but instead asking questions and interacting with customers.

5. Share Self-Explanatory Pictures

Pictographic’s and infographics make it easier for information to be understood. Being descriptive in a photo can communicate lots of information quickly in a way that stands out (and gets shared!)

1. Post Inspiring Content, Images, and News Regularly

Attraction content is just that….inspiring, catchy, quotable, and visual!  While it could be tempting to offer deals, specials, and more continually, please remember that social media is about building relationships, being social, and offering value. Users are on Facebook to connect and engage with things of interest. Being too salesy all the time will turn fans off.

2. Highlight Special Items on the Fan Page Cover Image

Since Facebook no longer has a text limit of 20% on Cover Images, use the Cover Image regularly as a means of showcasing valuable items like this week’s special, new seasonal offerings, or pictures of the live band, whatever is relevant to your business! This can be changed out weekly or 2x a week. Consider using a  Cover Image template to enable you to customize images quickly.

3. Offer Web Features via a Facebook Tab

Whether you offer a ROI calculator, a reservations widget, or ability to buy or customize a product on your site, why not bring it into Facebook?  How can you do this quickly?   Use the TabSite Website ReSizer and simply add your existing webpage to a Facebook tab!

Then share updates to your menu via a post on Facebook and link to the tab via a Smart URL (mobile friendly) to take visitors direct to the tab!

4. Offer a Special Deal for Email Sign-ups via a Facebook Tab

By adding a Email sign-up tab to your Facebook page and making users aware of it periodically through posts and tips, restaurants and others can grow their email list and then reach potential buyers and sellers via this means as well.
