Newsfeed SmartApps help increase Facebook engagement

Newsfeed SmartApps help increase Facebook engagement.

When we were building Newsfeed SmartApps few years ago one startling metric we discovered was 71% of time spent by users in Facebook was on the newsfeed. This we estimate might have only increased to 80-85% with more users accessing Facebook via smartphones. When users are bombarded with content in their newsfeed, how do you stand out and how can you engage with your FB audience in the newsfeed and get more ROI for every post? And when you know they’re not visiting your brand Facebook page, how do you engage/interact with them?
