Don’t saturate your audience with too much promotion and information
Don’t saturate your social media followers with too much advertising and communication. For example, if you are constantly bombarded with posts on your Facebook page. It’s easy for people to choose to hide posts due to saturation on your page. Remember that neither Facebook nor Instagram is Twitter.
