iHN is Leaving Facebook

Say What? iHN is Leaving Facebook!?

We launched the iHomeschool Network Facebook page on January 1, 2012. Two years later, we reached the milestone of ten thousand fans. It’s been a great ride, and we thank Facebook for giving us the opportunity to meet so many great homeschool moms on their free platform. To our fans who clicked the like button, we appreciate you!

We have some great giveaways at the bottom of the page.

But for 2014, we have chosen to refocus our efforts elsewhere. That means that we are going to stop posting regularly to our Facebook page. In essence, iHomeschool Network is leaving Facebook.

Why are you leaving Facebook?

We love our 10,000 fans on Facebook! But we know that you visit Facebook to connect with friends and family. So instead of trying to game the system or pay Facebook to show you our posts, we are letting Facebook revert to what most users (and Facebook) want it to be — a network where you laugh at silly pet photos and find out how your cousins and high school classmates are doing. We aren’t going to post our bloggers’ content there anymore. And we won’t have anymore Facebook parties either.

Are you deleting your Facebook page?

No, but we won’t be spending much time there.

How can we keep up with what iHN is doing?

Getting information to your inbox is the safest way to be informed because you will always get the message (until you choose to unsubscribe). So the best way to keep in touch with iHN is to subscribe to our helpful tips and occasional event updates. Be assured that we never sell our list or sell access to our list to advertisers. Any promotional content you get is straight from us — our events and news.

Other ways to keep up with iHN:

Are your 100 bloggers going to abandon Facebook or delete their pages?

Some might, but it’s their own decision. We are talking about the iHomeschool Network Facebook page only.

But iHN does social media! How can you leave Facebook?

Yes, we remain committed to our purpose — connecting homeschoolers through the power of social media. We will be using an even richer approach to social media than before as we experiment with new strategies and invest in new platforms.

Social media is constantly changing, and part of being on the cutting edge of innovation is keeping up with those changes. Our own business model has to reflect the developments that we see coming down the line. So although we know homeschool moms are active on Facebook, we think we can reach them more effectively outside of Facebook.
