In the coming weeks, you could be seeing less of us on Facebook. That’s because the social network is changing the formula that populates what you see in your News Feed.

Facebook’s algorithm is devaluing updates from news organizations like Chalkbeat, prioritizing status updates and links from family and friends instead.

We don’t want Facebook to come between us, so we’re making sure you know all the different ways you can connect with us and our education coverage.

First, become a Chalkbeat subscriber and let us come to you.

The easiest way to stay on top of all the education news from Chalkbeat is to sign up for one of our newsletters.

Every location we cover — Colorado, Detroit, Indiana, New York, and Tennessee — offers at least one local newsletter. And our national team rounds up the latest in education trends across the United States — plus additional features such as the Chalkbeat research corner and our Betsy DeVos tracker — every Wednesday.

Second, tell Facebook you like us and want to see more of us.

Facebook doesn’t have to keep us apart. But you’re going to have to make that clear.

If you’re on a desktop go to your favorite Chalkbeat Facebook pages. Here’s a link to our main Facebook page, and here are links to Colorado, Detroit, Indiana, New York, and Tennessee. Click the “Following” button, which should appear on the center left of the page, just underneath our cover photo. Then select “See First.”

If you’re on an iPhone:

  1. Select the three-line menu in the bottom right-hand corner of the app.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the menu and select “Settings.”
  3. Select “News Feed Preferences.”
  4. Select “Prioritize who to see first.”
  5. Select your favorite Chalkbeat pages you want to see first in your news feed. A blue star will appear once you’ve correctly selected your choices.
  6. Hit “Done.”

If you’re on an Android:

  1. Select the three-line menu in the top right-hand corner of the app.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the menu and select “News Feed Preferences.”
  3. Select “Prioritize who to see first.
  4. Select your favorite Chalkbeat pages you want to see first in your news feed. A blue star will appear once you’ve correctly selected your choices.
  5. Hit “Done.”

That’s it. Now, our posts on Facebook should regularly appear in your feed.

Third, follow us on other networks.

Find us on Twitter on our main Chalkbeat account or any of our bureau accounts: Colorado, Detroit, Indiana, New York, and Tennessee. You can also follow Chalkbeat on LinkedIn and read our stories on Flipboard.

Thanks for taking the time to stay connected with Chalkbeat!
