To be honest, it needs to be interesting. Looking at it all I see is mostly blocks of text. There are a couple of videos but little or no interaction. It gives information but that's about all. Once a viewer has read the information there isn't much to keep them coming back.
Perhaps people who attend meets would allow the use of some pictures?
Not being nasty but speaking from experience, a status or post with pictures performs better than those without and if the pictures are moving they tend to do better still.
Another thing is that a business page can't have "friends" just likes & shares, so possibly an account purely for Buzz would help.

Great comments lensman and thank you for them.

Yes, pictures from meets would be a great idea, I now have that on my list.

No, there isn't much to bring people back.

One good thing about our Facebook page is that it is bringing quite a few new members to Buzz every day and the news about Buzz is here on our site.

I was not aware that you could have a site for an organisation, I thought that it had to be just what we have, 'business page'. Lensman, do you or does anybody else know how to go about this?

Hi Mike......I have shared your latest video on Facebook, so all my 'friends' will see it, and

I have 'liked' the page on Facebook.
However, I have temporarily turned off my Facebook account, because I have been getting so many posts, some with bad language, to do with the election. (UK). Some of it is from people I know, but I don't want it, so rather than cut out people who are otherwise quite welcome, I have stopped it.
Facebook and Twitter seem to bring out the worst in some people, who become unusually abusive where politics is concerned. We are in the middle of a seemingly endless election campaign, which gets more and more unpleasant as it goes on.
Maybe I'll return to it when the abuse stops.

I'm not a FB fan either but question to you is why bother reading the negative responses? Check your FB settings. I'm not sure about this but maybe you can place some type of block on them OR put in a complaint by clicking the right upper arrow key...the drop down menus speaks for itself. Lol No one ever told you that politics and religion are controversial topics?? Lol Good luck!
