    Ever wonder why some would post:
    "Add these numbers together..."
    "What was your first car..."
    "Fish names containing the letter 'a'..." They are using a lazy method to improve their "Edge Rank" algorithm. And unfortunately, it works. They can get thousands of responses especially when people see their friends have answered the question. The Edge Rank Formula is:
    Rank = Affinity x Weight x Decay (see formula below) Other less sleazy methods of improving Edge Rank are:
    1. Get More Likes on Your Facebook Page (Helps Affinity)
    2. Post Great Content (Helps Affinity & Weight)
    3. Encourage & Respond to FB Messages (Helps Affinity)
    4. Post Visually Appealing Content (Helps Weight)
    5. Post Questions & Fill-in-the-blanks (Helps Weight)
    6. Ask for Likes, Comment & Shares (Helps Weight)
    7. Plan your Posts
    First thing in the morning between 6-8am
    During Lunch time 11am-1pm
    After "work" hours 6-9pm.

    New Release from SereyJones ...
    Sister Jane by Irmgarde Brown.
    "All her life, Jane believes she is small-town ordinary. . . until she isn’t. Some people brand her a witch because of the cat while others believe she has a demon. Her family thinks she’s ready for the nursing home, and the down-and-out reporter assumes she’s a fake. But nobody, including Jane, can figure out how she does it: heal the sick. All the sick. All the time. Is it a gift of God? The Church is divided. Then, everything erupts when the foreigners arrive along with the government people and the scientists. Will Jane become a pawn or save herself?" https://amzn.to/3gi84JC

    This is a perfect description of the creative process. However, sometimes a deadline has to be inserted into the middle of everything. That's called "being professional."
