If you are serious about social media and
especially facebook, then you know the name
of the game is “facebook engagement”. It’s simple,
the more people like, share and comment
on your posts, the more outsiders can see your posts
and the word spreads. Your #1 goal on facebook
is to solicit engagement.
Within the last 2 months facebook released
an update that makes it easier to get engagement
from your fans/friends. It’s just like anything
else though, you have to take action and do something
to make it happen.
There are 2 things going on with facebook right now,
that are keeping them on top of their game. You
have to remember, google+ is trying hard all day
everyday to catch up with FB. With that in mind,
FB has to really keep their eyes out for what’s working.
Thing #1: if facebook takes a look at
which 3rd party suites and apps are successful,
and if they like them,they are buying them
and or taking their idea and programing it
into their updates. (That was the longest run-on
sentence ever) Facebook is looking to see what
people like and what works. They are also
looking to either buy up or incorporate popular
3rd party “apps” into their programing.
Thing #2: facebook is listening to
the feedback we are giving them. The Wall St
crowd does not like “The Zuck” very much
and his stock price reflects it. This is
because “The Zuck” still listens to us, the
users, more than he does his investors, when
it comes to programing new stuff. When is the
last time you have sent a suggestion or
complaint to Facebook? Next time, instead
of posting your frustration, send a message
to facebook about it. Facebook is known for
listening to us. They re constantly monitoring
all walls, looking for feedback good and bad.
As demand rises from us, and Wall St, facebook
will continue to roll out new stuff, that is
user friendly, every chance they get. Facebook
wants to be just like google. You can literally
run your whole computer and have everything
you could ever need, with all the free stuff
google supplies. The Wall St investors have
this same vision for facebook.
These two tricks are simple and will help
improve your etiquette on facebook. I’m
glad to see they are listening. I just hope
they incorporate hashtags one day soon.
