10 things you probably shouldn't do on Facebook…

Super friendly, super easy to use but oh so easy to make a mistake! Yes, that’s Facebook.

  • If you lose your Facebook account it’s tough, all your family photos, all your contacts and all the effort you have put in over the years.
  • Many marketers and small businesses who come into Facebook with mindsets that work in other industries end up shooting themselves in the foot.
  • Working with Facebook users is not like working with other audiences!

Sarah,

These are priceless tips! Each one should be followed. Facebook is a social site so be social…share, have fun, post your blog link, share videos and pictures – all great ways.

The best is engagement. When we engage with others on this site, we are socializing. To me it is like walking into a party in slow motion.

Someone says something, and you join in the conversation, you keep it going – others jump in. Its great.

As for spamming…we have that good old delete button for those who bombard us.

Thanks for the tips
Donna

    Hi Donna, I agree we should engage, after all if we don’t what do we get? Another broadcast medium like the TV.
    I think it’s hard for people to remember that no one logs into Facebook on a daily basis thinking “hmmm, I wonder what offers people are going to pitch me today”.
    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your wisdom.

Facebook grows your network like few other sites. You can connect with ease on FB, sending personal message, creating thorough, value-packed comments and joining groups relevant to your niche.

Show up daily. Program people to respond to your value-packed message.

Thanks Sarah!

Hi Sarah,

These are great tips! I love the slideshow!

I’ll admit, I have deleted negative comments before. If it was something that I could engage with and respond to regarding business, then I would have. But flat out vulgar, negative comments don’t even deserve my attention, so I deleted it.

Plus, I take everything to heart, deleting it allowed me to move on with my day and not look at it!

Thank for the awesome slideshow!

    I understand totally where you are coming from Christine, and your reasons why. In the case of corporate users they tend to have a penchant for deleting anything that doesn’t “fit” the brand ethos rather than addressing those comments. Glad you like the slideshow, I’m finding Slideshare pretty awesome at the moment :)

For some reason this didn’t work for me. I clicked the Like but then couldn’t download the “10 things”, but I did end up putting it on Facebook. Oh my. Any chance you could email me the article? Hope it works for people who read it on Facebook. :) Thanks, Karleene

    Sorry to hear that Karleene, the link appears directly underneath the box and it takes about 3 seconds to show. I will email you a copy across.
