Facebook modified newsfeed: A how to for Social marketers


Facebook announced their biggest modification for their newsfeed in March. These changes have a major impact on brands and how they engage with their fans on Facebook. So what are these changes and what is the best way for Social marketers to optimalise their content on the latest Newsfeed?

A lot of brands already know that pictures and visual content generate more interaction with their audience. Therefore the innovative Newsfeed is designed for a more advanced visual content to respond to this fact.

These are the most significant changes

  • The ability to filter different options.
    You can filter friends, pictures, brand pages, music and games.

  • The user experience will be consistent on platforms such as: mobile, tablet and desktop.

  • To generate more interaction, the postings will be more visual in terms of information and context.

  • The new ability to filter and the strong accentuation on visual content will have an effect on the way you optimize your brand on the Newsfeed.

Here are useful tips to work your way into the latest changes:

Short text

Use short text in the pictures, the text should be a short explanation for the user or a clear call to action.

Visually unique content

The best way to stand out from other brands and posts in the feed is to have a unique and original content. This is a very obvious advice, but there are still a lot of brands that don’t invest enough in this activity.

Combine Facebook and Pinterest

There will also be a lot more visibility on the new Newsfeed from other different parties such as Pinterest. Pinterest is such an important lead player in the visual content department, so it’s a good reason to also share photos via this platform.


As you may or may not have noticed, visual content is becoming a very powerful strategy for brands to stand out from their competition in the Newsfeed. With the help of original posts and effective images, there will be a good chance that the click through percentage will increase. Stay ahead of the game and give the visual content strategy a try!

Event Planners: To Outsource or Not to Outsoure?


A famous English Poet once said something like this, but today we give this a twist to the event world.

As an organization you might have noticed the importance of hosting an event. The question is whether to organize the event individually or do you hire an event planner? What are you going to do? We have listed the pros and cons of outsourcing an event planner.


  • Event agencies have extensive experience and are aware of the latest trends in the industry. There is a great possibility that the certain knowledge you need to host a high quality event is not fully present within your company.

  • An event planner has an objective view of the company. Therefore it’s much easier for them to put their finger on the stronger and weaker points of the organization so they can easily customize the event to your company’s style.

  • Event planners have an extensive network in the events industry. They know the right people and know where to get the needed supplies and often for better prices.

  • When you decide to host an event individually, keep in mind that it will take up a lot of time and you will have multiple responsibilities. The daily tasks may have to be put on hold, due to the extent of time it takes to organize an event.



  • A good briefing is necessary to meet up with the required wishes. This may take more time if the event planner is not familiar with your organization. They aren’t accustomed to the company’s style so therefore it’s going to take them longer to sense your desires.

  • You should take into account the expense of outsourcing the event. Despite the effective work of an event planner, the cost can be very high. Perhaps hedge the costs in advance?

An event can be as large or delicate as you want to realize it. Make notes of the required expertise, creativity, budget and risks. Whether you organize it individually or you outsource the event, make sure that it meets up with your desires and that you will achieve the best results.
