Photography is my way of trying to stay in the moment just a few seconds longer, cherishing it by freezing it in time. Time is fleeting and change relentless, especially in technology. Not much time remains for dwelling in the past. Despite living in technology, I resist change as much as the next person. Photography …
A few days back, I found this short post in my news feed on Facebook. I was already familiar with PACE Center for Girls, and I was interested, but I found the post sharing the good news a bit anti-climactic.
In previous posts, we've talked about how to create a more dynamic Facebook experience through tagging, and more effective ways to share information with your friends about the organizations and causes you care about. Now, we'll address how to setup your Facebook page so that it appears more approachable, and is more interactive.
We had very lively and interesting discussions throughout the 90 minutes presentation. Participating business owners contributed good questions and conclusions. As promised, the slide deck is published on slideshare.net for your self-study and for following up on all links mentioned during this event. Harry Looknanan and I also discussed some more ideas regarding an upcoming Social Networks Bootcamp for Business Owners. If you have particular topics or questions that you would like included, please post them in our comment section below. Also if you are interested in attending the Social Networks Bootcamp session, let us know and we will make sure that you will be notified.
So, you've jumped into (or, are thinking about jumping into), the social media fray to expand your business or organization's online marketing horizons, by creating a Facebook business page. Good for you! You're on the right track, so congratulate yourself. A lot of small business owners don't even bother to create a page -- they're simply not on? Facebook, (or online, for that matter).
Facebook makes it easy for you to be an online advocate for the organizations you care about, and spread the word about events and good deeds happening in your community. How? Tag it!
Some of us are happy to share links, videos, information, and quotes with our friends on Facebook, and some of us are also active in various online communities that have Facebook pages. More frequently, I find myself in the situation that I am sharing connected information over more than one page, and with my own personal friends. And, you might have seen that other people tag friends in photos. You can do that also in posts.
