A Facebook “dark post” is essentially just AN UNPUBLISHED FACEBOOKPOST YOU PAY TO SHOW TO A SELECT GROUP OF USERS. Unlike normal posts,which are available for anyone who sees your Page to view,these posts can leave as much of your Page’s fans “in the dark”as you want.Dark posts can be shown to highly targeted groups of just a fewpeople, or they can be created for broader groups of fans. Like otherforms of Facebook advertising, you control who sees them, and exactlyhow much you spend getting them displayed. But the difference is thatthey are _posts_ — that is, they show up within the News Feed, noton the sidebar.The biggest perk of dark posts is that YOU CAN REACH SPECIFIC GROUPSWITH THEM. Why show ads to those who won’t care about your products,or might have already purchased from you? With dark posts, you canserve content right in the News Feed that is highly relevant and asfinely targeted as you like. You can also A/B test headlines or adcontent this way!If your brand or online store wants to reach a highly targeted groupof people, and wants to create a piece of advertising that has abetter chance at being viewed than a traditional ad, all with theappeal of Facebook’s post format, dark posts are for you.
