  • Session 2: Facebook: The 800-pound gorilla of social mediaWeb site vs. Facebook: Pros & consThe basics: Getting startedPages vs. groups vs. branded pagesTimeline, tags & privacyTabs & applicationsBuilding & sustaining community Converting “likes” into actionCase studyHow to deal with, “my employees are spending more time on Facebook than they are working.”
  • Just make sure that the profile photo works on its own, since it represents your brand on Facebook anywhere you post or comment. Your profile photo is 180 x 180 on your page, 32 x 32 on other parts of Facebook.
  • Facebook have introduced direct, private messaging between any Facebook user and pages. When arriving at a brand’s page, someone simply needs to click the ‘Message’ button (placed prominently right next to the ‘Like’ button) to initiate the process. Brands have the option of disabling this functionality if they wish.This means fans and non-fans alike suddenly will be expecting near to real-time and personalised customer service on Facebook, something, let’s face it, most brands are just not prepared for. Those brands that disable the functionality will appear to be distant and un-progressive.Expect brands who have properly operationalised social media customer service to gain even more competitive advantage, and many more social media fuelled crises for brands that haven’t, as frustration at unanswered messages (or the inability to send them) spills over into the rest of social media.--Only you can see your activity log They can promote the most engaging Page posts by pinning them, putting media behind them, and creating more of them, thereby increasing reach and impact They can quickly recognize posts that aren’t performing as well and update them or post new content
