Ford has ensured one of their vehicles will play a small part in the videos of popular Viners. This example of irreverent humor attracts the trust and attention of a younger audience.

That kind of “fan” is also much more likely to hide your brand’s posts in their feed. If that happens enough times, the Facebook algorithm will make your updates lower priority in your fan’s news feeds. And even when fans do come back to your page or don’t hide your posts, only about 1 percent actually engage. Again, that’s bad news, as Facebook’s algorithm uses engagement as a form of ranking.
