Got a Facebook Page for your business?
Freaking out about creating a good-looking cover photo for your Timeline?
You’ve probably noticed that striking visual piece in the Facebook Pages timeline layout — a nearly-screen-width banner image, known as a “Cover.”
On March 30, 2012, all Facebook Pages were converted to the timeline layout with the cover photo.
But you may have noticed that not every cover image is a home run …
This how-to guide is designed to help Facebook Pages create a cover image that looks professional, makes a great first impression, and markets your brand’s best assets — without violating the Facebook Pages Terms.
The social media world is changing daily. In other words, we must be alert and aware of the new tools that could support us in our approach. This interesting article speaks about some "new" tools that can also help us to go towards to success. [note Martin Gysler]
It’s time to teach that old dog some new tricks.
That old dog I’m referring to is social media.
Sure, you’re already blogging, and on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, and more. Great.
But I’m telling you — there’s more to social media than meets the eye. The final chapter on social media hasn’t been written.
When I kicked off my writing business in April, I decided to use social media my way.
I approached these overused networks as if I’d never heard of them. I made my own rules. I set different expectations. You could say I wrote my own chapter on social media marketing.
Whether you're just starting out in the wonderful world of social media or you're a seasoned user, this post has some very great advice for making sure your social offer supports your business aims . . .
Your story is always being told, regardless of whether or not you decide to be the writer and director. If you think Facebook Timelines are only about highlighting and pinning pics, you are missing the point.
Here is what I like about this article -- it actually contains concrete ideas for how to bring stories into your Facebook timeline. There are even links to Facebook company pages where forms of storytelling are actually happening. I think we have a ways to go yet in terms of being able to effectively share stories via social media. But this is a good beginning.
I hope you get some good ideas from this post!
Thank you fellow curator Debra Askanase @askdebra for recommending this article!
Yes, this article goes to the points that can be painful for anyone who is active on social media. I read this post with interest and I could see that the solutions proposed are logical but very useful. [note mg]
You may love social media, but even the biggest fans of the social web will find some sources of frustration. What is your social media pain point? I thought I'd explore some of the main ones I've identified and offer up some potential solutions.
1. Managing Your Profile and Reputation
So many networks, so many different audiences and connections. Maybe you’re feeling like you have split personalities: being professional on LinkedIn, running at the mouth on Twitter, then letting your hair down on Facebook. But wait! You forgot that you’re connected with your boss or your client on Facebook. Panic ensues. Or what if someone is Googling your name before interviewing you for a job. What will they find? Over the last 10 years, we’ve all learned some tough lessons about what it means to be digital.
Maybe some of you have wondered whether this approach was possible and if so, how to go about it, here is the guide that should put you on the right track. [note MG]
After reading Mike Sansone’s blog about how he was inspired by my act to leave Facebook, but chose to convert his personal page to a fan page instead of deletion, I was inspired to create this how-to do it post. Facebook has what they call a “help section” on this, but as usual, it’s completely unhelpful. Before I dive into the few steps it takes to do this, see what you think (left):
So, as you can see, it never really answers the question on how to convert my personal account to a Facebook page. I don’t know about you but Help sections on websites that don’t actually answer the question, I find quite frustrating.
