How to Help the Mises Institute on Facebook


As you probably know, Facebook is constantly changing its methods of deciding which posts you see and which you don't see. Privacy settings change constantly as do settings for your news feed. It difficult to say exactly how these changes affect the number of people who see our Mises Institute Facebook posts, but you can help us extend our reach and the number of posts you see from us. A little known fact is that Ludwig von Mises himself pioneered the "thumbs up" gesture (see photo below), which was in turn adopted by hard-core Misesian Mark Zuckerberg for use on Facebook. Well, that remains unconfirmed, but what is definitely true is that one of the easiest things you can do to make sure more people see our posts is to simply like and share our posts as you see them in your news feed. But there's more you can do as well.  This graphic below shows you two ways you can help us on Facebook.

First, go to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mises.institute, and then: facebook_post
