Nobody loves to be spammed and in this age of technology, people end up choosing those that offer high quality content while not offering too much content.

It is obvious that media companies have a different approach with Facebook pages when compared to brands. On average, you need to just page 2 to 3 times when you run a brand page.

Media companies have pages where followers can easily endure many more posts. You can easily get away with 6 to 12 but even with such pages there is a too much. You should never post the same content several times, even if it is breaking news. That is a very common mistake a lot of people do.

Create A Suitable Posting Plan

Facebook allows you to schedule your posts in advance and it is a shame to see that so many do not even take advantage of this option. You can easily schedule 2 posts per day for the upcoming week in a few hours. In the event something special happens and you need to do an extra share, you can do so in real time and move the scheduled shares, if necessary.

Take your target audience into account and get feedback from them. Try different approaches and keep a close eye on the increases in likes and unlikes. You will surely make the most out of your page when you do that.
