In the last issue we mention about utilizing Facebook Groups for your business. In today’s issue, we will discuss about the ideal ways you should interact with your Fans and Friends from Facebook.
Although people are more or less aware of what proper Netiquette in social media management, the creation and development of Facebook has taken web interaction to a whole new level.
When it comes to Facebook marketing, there are a number of things you have to remember when addressing people.You should evaluate the applications that you use. Whether you use your Facebook account for personal or professional reasons, one should always remember that the internet has an impact on the society. It may be too shallow but for some people, a Facebook account even becomes a basis of making or breaking relationships. There are also some that rant about their bosses, spouses or in-laws online.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when dealing with people online through Facebook, more so if you’re using it professionally.
- Keep what needs to be Private, Private
Redundant as it may sound, this is the major rule many people forget. The connections and sense of voyeurism Facebook gives is a tempting entity but you should remember these things have a tendency to backfire you and your business. Do you really want your clients see you puking on your Friday night gimmicks? Or is that catty comment that was meant to be an inside joke between friends worth the misinterpretation by others? Remember, the Internet is forever. Personal or professional contacts may stumble on these in the future. If your life is like an open book, imagine the consequence of you having to explain to them each and every action you made in the past.
When Using Facebook for Business, Stop Publishing those Game Updates
Unless you’re in junior high school, getting those messy game updates will tend to irritate prospective customers. If you still play these games however, it would be best if you not have the updates posted on your wall. Posting the game updates may not be a big deal for you and your ‘Farmville’ neighbors. But to others, posting game updates will give you the recognition of being a bit too juvenile. That’s a big no-no when you’re trying to establish sound integrity online.
- Stop Text Posting or Posting when it’s not necessary
?Hd a frikng gud tym at d prty lst nyt? just doesn’t sound well online. Some people may forget that all the characters are at your disposal and besides, you have a relatively longer character limit, so make use of them accordingly. The same thing goes for posting nonsense words or mediocre things. In fact, stop posting just for the sake of posting. Although all Facebook users have the freedom to say just about anything they like, this thing can also be very annoying to many people over the long run. Annoyance is not the sentiment you want to conjure up in people.
- Choose Contacts Wisely
You ought to remember that all news and details posted will appear on their wall. Their other Facebook friends can even see these posts in many occasions. So it would be best if you only pick contacts that are targeted. Choose direct contacts if possible. You only have a 5,000 limit for contacts after all. If you’re operating a Facebook page for business reasons, you shouldn’t be too quick in accepting friend requests. It would be best if you examine them first. It is unethical to befriend everyone and then de-friend them later on.
