~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Do you remember? Way back in 2013, again in 2014, one more time in 2015, and finally in 2016 there was a chorus of "Facebook is dying" splashed across the Web. Remember all the rants about cat meme's and political leanings destroying the site? How about the doom predicted because of fake accounts and security concerns? 

There have been plenty of unpopular changes (newsfeed changes come to mind), a public stock offering, new and existing competitors upping the ante for consumer attention, and lots of other negative press over the last few years. What's the one constant? With now over 2 billion monthly active users, Facebook continues to grow! Hopefully you have grown with it, Rainers! ;-)

Did You Know...according to Zephoria Digital Marketing, the average FB user spends 20 minutes on the site. That is plenty of time to get your content and message noticed...are they?

PLEASE stop by the 5 Facebook Business Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please take a moment and return the favor.

As always, enjoy Rainers!

The ability to 'visit' family members all over the world is amazing and the reach for potential business continues to be at the forefront for me and so many others. Facebook is going nowhere but up in my opinion Anita. Great post on proving the naysayers wrong!

Anita, there will always be haters or naysayers trying to take down FB, and still lots of users.  Great post.

Wanda: We are on the same page! FB is growing not waning.

Happy to provide the information. Thanks Stephen.

Joan: Anything that is successful is met with opposition. Often not warranted either.

You would be proud, Anita! I've been working diligently for the past two weeks on mine and I finally have a 'system' that I so desperately needed. 

And, I have noticed more people on FB lately - I remember hearing that it would go away several years in a row and after the election, many people did leave until after the drama died down. But, they're all back - at least the ones that I know that left!

Have a great week, Anita!

Hi Anita Clark . I am clearly in the minority, perhaps even alone, but I have no use for facebook. I understand it's not going away, but don't like it. Perhaps it is as simple as I don't understand it, but it's not for me and most i know.

Thanks for sharing.

FB has made many changes and we can expect many more to come.

Our job is to maximize the use of this tool and try to adjust to the changes.

Thanks for your faithful sharing.

So glad it was helpful. Thanks Lou.

Bruce: This may be a shocker to some but FB is not in my top 3 social media venues I prefer to use. BUT, I know it works and I know that is where many future clients are at so I am also there. 

John: So true, we need to adapt or miss out.

Janice: I learn something new each week about the site.

Anita Clark - some so-called experts want to create a sensation - and try to justify some predictions, they even know are not true! Like Demise of Facebook.

I'll admit it, I don't spend 20 minutes a day on Facebook, but it's also clear to me that I know an awful lot of people who make up my time, as they seem never to get off of Facebook!

Yay...thanks so much, Sam.

Paful: The more noise they can generate they better they like it too.

Tis very true, Nina.
