Why publishers love negative Facebook comments

Last week, Offbeat Home & Life's Facebook page shared a post from 2011 about Mormon mommy blogs. This post was originally written for Offbeat Families (then known as Offbeat Mama), and honestly, it really wasn't an especially interesting post. What WAS interesting, however, was the response to the post on Facebook.


Pinterest vs Facebook: how different algorithms encourage different publisher behavior

While both Facebook and Pinterest traffic are hugely important to me, I interact with the two networks very differently. As a publisher, Facebook has me trained like a dog: we post all day, every day on our Facebook page because we see an immediate, real-time traffic boost when our posts go out. Meanwhile, I have very little control over the traffic Pinterest sends, even though I also post there all day every day. So why do I keep pinning?
