can you see me now? **CLOSED**


yes, this is a post about facebook updates. stick with me, i promise it will be worth it at the end!! (wink, wink)

so… i have learned recently that i may have disappeared from your facebook news feed. :(

turns out since facebook required us all to move to timeline, some of you haven’t been able to see the pleated poppy posts, even though you have liked the shop!

last month, over 4,000 of my readers each day saw the 12 deals of christmas sales and snagged a lot of great products! sometimes i put discount codes on facebook only, so i want to make sure everyone can see them. plus facebook is the most practical place where we can all interact and get to know each other!!

so, if you are willing to do one of these two little steps below, you can make sure that you are seeing my posts AND there may just be a little something-something as a thank you!

there are two ways to be sure you are seeing the pleated poppy. pick whichever option works for you!

option #1:

option #1 is the quickest way and will make sure that the pleated poppy shows up in your regular news feed along with all those cute baby pictures and really funny e-cards!

1) log on to your facebook account

2) at the top of the screen, you will see the words “search for people, places, and things” — in this space type “the pleated poppy

3) when the pleated poppy page comes up, hold your mouse over the “LIKE” button. (if you haven’t liked the pleated poppy before, you’ll need to do that first!) then click “show in news feed

this will make sure that when you log on to facebook and see your news feed, you will be able to see all the pleated poppy posts, pics, tutorials, etc!


option #2 will allow you to create a “favorites” page where you can add the pleated poppy to keep it separate from all your friends and family posts. this is what i use. i have one for family, local friends, faraway friends, church friends, old friends from college who i never see… you get it, right? i like this option because it keeps everything neat and tidy. no scrolling through endless posts to find the latest update. if option #2 is for you… read on!

1) log on to your facebook account

2) at the top of the screen, you will see the words “search for people, places, and things” — in this space type “the pleated poppy

3) when the pleated poppy page comes up, hold your mouse over the “LIKE” button. (if you haven’t liked the pleated poppy before, you’ll need to do that first!) then click “add to interest lists

4) once you click “add to interest lists“, a new drop down menu will show up (see below). click “new list.”

5) a new page will pop up that shows that the pleated poppy will be in this new interest list. if you have other blogs or people you want to set apart as “must reads”, add them to this list too. i’m keeping mine just with the pleated poppy only so i can see all of my posts easily. when you are finished, click “next.”

6) LAST STEP!!! now just name your new interest list whatever you like! i’ve chosen to call mine “the pleated poppy blog.” this is when you can choose who can see your new list: public, friends, or just you. click “done” when finished!

now you can see your new list on the left hand side of your screen. anytime you want to go directly to the pleated poppy posts, just click your new list!

if you want to get super fancy, click on the blue pencil next to your new list and select “add to favorites.” this will move your new list to the top left of your page making it much easier to find!

i hope that helps! thanks for hanging in there with me on this detailed step-by-step tutorial!

as a thank you, if you choose to update your facebook page to see the pleated poppy posts, you will be entered into a giveaway for a $50 gift card to my shop! let’s start the year off with some good shopping!!!

to enter, choose either step 1 or step 2 as listed above and update your facebook page. when you finish, come back here and leave me a comment letting me know that you like the pleated poppy and which update option you used.

contest will be open until saturday at noon (PST)!
