1 In 10 Friends Notice Your Facebook Wall Posts

One in ten friends notice the average wall posting on Facebook.

So says Robin Davey of GrowVision, who says you can prove this assertion yourself by replicating his simple test: Write on your own wall asking anyone who sees the post to click “like.” The resulting number of likes will show you the one-in-ten finding, assuming your wall visibility is set for all friends.
If you’ve got privacy settings limiting who can see your wall, then adjust your math accordingly to see whether the one-in-ten applies to your friends.
Now this one-in-ten result comes from groveling for likes. Without that, the potential that someone might notice a post and click through drops way below ten percent. Davey wagers that clickthroughs to shared videos are more like one percent of friends.
That sounds like a pretty strong call to action for Facebook marketers, and anyone else trying to get noticed on the site.
Readers, how many of your friends notice your wall posts?

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
