Roger Davies's insight:

Many of your facebook messages are dwindling out in the desert with very few ever seeing them, just as I suspected. This was my initial comment on the subject:  "so, how do you get your message to your audience (without paying)? start with good content, a valid message or cause, create some noise - repetition brings conviction, post your message with images on your own 'real' website or blog and repost your content with your link on the Twitter, Facebook and Google+ platforms, and then train your close friends and family to 'like' and  '+1' them for you I suppose .. so far so good."
