    I have a girl's facebook profile having 1.5 friends and 100+ followers. When I post any hot image, it get 20-30 likes but when I post a MyLikes link, I got no clicks and only 2-3 likes on post.

    I think, there are two reason behind it.
    1.) facebook don't feed links to friends and followers
    2.) facebook user don't like to visit to external websites.

    May be other reason like content type. But it's hard to earn with facebook.

    Yeah im pretty much done with facebook these days. They would rather have the big boys with money on there site now. Unless you have money for ads or building a page and boosting post, id honestly go elsewhere. Im finding sites like tumblr , twitter are so much better anyway

    To increase the CTR for external lin, you should use "boost post" this kind of ads will encourage clients to click on the link, you should create a "call to action" banner to tell people to click on the image.

    try targeting your leads better, do a search here Ulead and see of thats something you want to use :) Its hard to just boost a post and expect to get likes and followers. Target your audience better and you will see results! good luck! -Sasha

    When you make a post on fbook it only gets delivered to a fraction of your friends or people who like your page because they want you to pay to boost the post to reach more of your own friends. Such BS... Any hoot, one way you can get your posts out to more of your users is to boost your posts with likes and/or comments. I have found that this helps extend the target reach of the post you are trying to market.

    I'm pretty sure this is a personal account, not a page.

    OP, images seem to always get more coverage in the news feed. Post an image, with a link. Status updates seem to never get the same audience.

    Now the facebook user knows about naked promotional links, just try to use your link with a hot pic.

    Pictures definitely work better, so I suggest you combine them with links and good copy. Or, you now have the option to change the image, title and short description when posting links with thumbnail, so this also works great if you add hot picture to the link, which should increase your CTR. (If you do that, please tell us how it worked for you) And finally, i suggest you connect your facebook account with other ones like tumblr, twitter, pinterest and integrate posting for all of them via IFTTT for example. I use it with Facebook and Tumblr and like how it works.

    That was the reality of social media sites. A vast majority of users always seem not to have time to visit external links or pages. It seems to them Facebook page will always the relevant one and if they visit another external pages they might get spam.
