If I update (for example three times a day) my FB

what could be considered, in generic terms, a "good update"?

VS updating for the sake of updating?

IMO a 'good' update contains a value proposition for the reader: e.g. something useful, news, funny, interesting, unique...

Does not always have to contain something actionable or a sales pitch. As long as it creates a positive association between the message and your brand/product.

Trackback earlier updates and count likes + comments to get a rough idea of what your audience wants.

Thanks,
value proposition for the reader:

I suppose it sums it up pretty well,

Anyone else...

I think caribguy hit the nail on the head - if you have nothing of value to say... then dont say anything at all :)

Updating for the sake of updating will be a sure to make people leave your group!

As an alternative to that why not have seperate lists for the different things you are involved in and that way you could update a lot of times a day but maybe only 3 times for your "make money online" list and 3 times for your family list.

You are not restricted on how many lists you can have and people can appear on more than one list.

Just a suggestion.

As far as updating, figure out what peak traffic times are during the day. Typically it will be in the morning and late afternoon. Post an update/content once during each peak time.

The content does not have to be self created custom content, though I highly advise you to do so. I can be sharing the content from another Facebook page that would be helpful to your audience. This also builds networking with other companies.
