Was there a glitch in the Facebook matrix yesterday?
I ask because my live video (Ep 166) of my #WhatTrending Show received almost 14,000 views over a 13 hour period.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m completely humbled that that many eyeballs watched, however it’s out of the norm.
And, with that many views I should have at least received more likes, a comment or two and more shares.
What I received was 27 likes, 7 shares and 0 comments.
So that tells me that although a lot of eyes watched, they didn’t engage.
So, although I should be excited that my video was seen by so many people, I also question the validity of the numbers.
As this 1 single episode has been seen more times than all the previous 165 episodes combined.
So again I ask, “was there a glitch?”
Or, did the powers that be at Facebook HQ look down on me and say, “today, is the day your video goes out to the masses“?
As, a social media author, speaker and consultant I teach that creating a positive engagement leads to better trust from your audience.
When you have thousands more looking at your live videos than normal you question everything.
Was it the video?
Was it the time of day?
Was it the lighting?
Was it this, was it that, was it something else?
With every episode I pose a question, that those watching could answer in the comments.
So having 14,000 views should produce a few comments don’t you think?
Nope! Nada! None! Zip, Zilch, Zero!
Well, to those who watched….thank you!
Now go back and answer the question of the day I posed in the video.
If you didn’t see it yet, like I said it was Episode 166 of my #WhatsTrending Show…go watch it.
Make sure you comment.
