When I share my post on facebook who sees it?

  1. When I publish my posts to facebook, does each of my friends receive the post directly from wordpress, or does it get published to my page only and facebook shares the post according to their algorithms? That is, do all 600 of my facebook friends get the post delivered to their timeline, or just the portion that facebook allots from my timeline? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. It gets published to your page and then shared with people depending on your privacy settings (ie share only with friends, share with public, whatever) and Facebook's ever-changing algorhythms. No, all of our friends will NEVER see it unless they all decide to go to your wall.

  3. Thank you for this, it is as I suspected. Why, then, do my stats show I have 600 followers on facebook?

  4. Because it picks the biggest POSSIBLE number, ie the friends number. Not all of your blog followers open/read their emails or Readers or RSS feeds every day either, but any of those do receive all your posts. They just might or might not read them. Not the same with G+, Twitter, or Facebook.
