facebook: Do you Need Help? - 04/17/12 06:57 AM
It is so simple yet so few people utilize the help sections of each social media platform. I get questions on a daily basis from fans and clients which I often direct to the specific help page for the answer. They are the best place to start learning about a new social media site you might be interested in or even to enhance your experience with that platform.
You’ll find FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), video demonstrations and documents with step-by-step instructions.You can even find troubleshooting and known issues. Below is a quick list of the help sections for some of (2 comments)
facebook: Find Locals on Facebook - 01/18/12 10:00 AM
You can perform a simple search of your local areas on Facebook to find who is talking about the areas where you work. Let's perform a simple search of "Moving to West Chester." Type in the search box at the top of your Facebook page, then click "See results for moving to West Chester" in the box that pops up below your search. What should you do with this information? I'll tell you first what not to do: don't invite yourself to be someone's newly found friend so they can buy a house with you. Also, don't comment on their wall (3 comments)

facebook: FB.com - 08/03/11 11:18 AM
By now I am sure you have heard that Facebook has made it even easier to get your page noticed. When you have a Facebook Business page and create a username for your your page, you can now use FB.com/username instead of spelling out Facebook with www.facebook.com/username. It is shorter for printed pieces, especially business cards if you have a long web adress. This will also make it easier for you to add your Facebook address to your email signature. Have you started using this newer shortened version yet? Remember: Always try your links before you make them public.
