Make Sure You’re Seeing Our Facebook Posts In Your News Feed

If you are one of the almost 11,000 users that like or follow us on Facebook ( @HamiltonTwpNJ ), make sure you will continue seeing our posts in your news feed.

For Desktop Computer Users

·         In the blue, horizontal menu area at the top of your screen., click on the “downward arrow” in the top right corner (It is next to the question mark “quick help” icon)

·         In the dropdown menu, select “News Feed Preferences”  

·         In the box that will appear (entitled Preferences), select “Prioritize who to see first” (which has a star in a blue circle next to it)

·         If you have several “Facebook Friends”, the easiest way to find our page is by locating the drop down menu near the top, left side of the page that will say “All”.  When you click on that drop down menu, select “Pages only” 

·         Find “Hamilton Township” (our Township Seal has a blue boarder) and click on our icon

o   When you do this, a star in a blue circle should appear at the top, right corner of our icon and you should see the words “See First” below “Hamilton Township”

o   Then select “Done” and close the box out

·         Now you should continue seeing our posts because they will be prioritized in your news feed!

For iPhone Users

·         In the horizontal menu area at the bottom of your screen, click on the icon on the right with “three horizontal lines” (It is next to the “bell” icon).

·         In the menu that appears, scroll down to the bottom and select “Settings”

·         Another menu will pop up.  Select “News Feed Preferences”

·         In the “Preferences” menu, select  “Prioritize who to see first” (which has a star in a blue circle next to it)

·         If you begin to scroll down slightly, a “search bar” will appear

·         Type “Hamilton Township”

·         Our Facebook icon (our Township Seal, which has a blue boarder) should appear

    For Samsung Users

Although very similar to the directions for iPhone Users, menus may appear in different locations than on an iPhone.

  • In the horizontal menu area at the top of your screen, click on the icon on the right with “three horizontal lines” (It is next to the “bell” icon).
  • Scroll down to the bottom on the menu and select “News Feed Preferences”
  • In the “Preferences” menu, select  “Prioritize who to see first” (which has a star in a blue circle next to it)
  • Our Facebook icon (our Township Seal, which has a blue boarder) should appear
    • Click on our icon
    • When you do this, a star in a blue circle should appear at the right corner of our icon and you should see the words “See First” below “Hamilton Township”
  • Now you should continue seeing our posts because they will be prioritized in your news feed!

And Don’t Forget About Our FREE E-mail Newsletters!

  • You might not be on Facebook every time we make a post; however, another service you can sign up for – for FREE – is our E-mail Newsletter Service.
  • We try our best not to fill up your inbox.  Typically, we will send our “routine” E-mail Newsletters once or twice a month, on average.  These “routine” E-mail Newsletters will feature a number of recent articles, notices and updates, as well as additional features such as “How Do I Get Rid of It” reminders and a calendar of upcoming events or important dates.
  • The only instances when we send out more E-mail Newsletters are in urgent cases when we feel it is in the public’s best interest to receive a separate newsletter on a single, important topic – examples include a Missing Person/Child, an urgent Water issue, a Severe Storm/Snow Plowing Update or in an Emergency Event.
  • Please know that we are always sensitive to the fact that you likely receive many e-mails, so we strive to balance that with our ongoing efforts for transparency and keeping our community informed about important information.  Plus, you can unsubscribe from receiving our E-mail Newsletters at any time.
