  • CoreInclined (if asked)Potential (might)Unlikely
  • Enable wall comments and moderate with a very light hand. We only remove obvious spam and/or commercial messages. This is a public forum of sorts and people can and should express their opinions. Even (gasp) when critical. Your other fans will often rally to your defense.Be unexpected and full of variety (more on that in a bit…)
  • And just because you don’t speak the language doesn’t mean you can’t find someone who can help you do it!
  • http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2008/01/permission-mark.htmlLimit updates to no more than 3 things per day so you don’t wear out your welcome on people’s news feeds and get hidden or dropped altogether. We are their guest. Just visiting their newsfeed. Only get to stay with permission.
  • Make it easy to find you. Embedded social media content in your website and be seen “liking” posts of other FB pages.
