  • Fans on a Facebook page can post photos, videos, links, discuss topics on the discussion board and comment on the Page wall – all depending on the settings outlined by the Page administrator/owner.Pages send status updates that appear in a fans’ Homepage. Friends can then Comment or ‘Like’ a status update that they find entertaining – which means increased engagement for the Page.When individuals ‘Like’ a Facebook Page the action appears in the news stream and Highlights section of the Homepage of the friends of the fanPages take advantage of Facebook’s in-house analytics engine, Facebook Insights. Facebook Pages can also have multiple administrators, meaning that the responsibility for uploading, moderating and updating content can be shared between several individuals. It is important to point out that any actions taken from your Facebook account as a Page administrator on your Page will show the Page’s name as the actor and not your personal name. Therefore Pages have the ability to comment on their own posted item or status update using the identity of the Page and not the Page administrator.Additional benefits of Facebook Pages are that they cost nothing to set up and there are no monthly fees for maintaining a Facebook Page. Pages can also become fans of other Pages, thus helping Pages affiliate themselves with other brands in a product line or public figures. Pages also have SEO benefits because they show up very high in search results for your brand or product. One is also able to control the default landing page tab when a user visits your Facebook Page.No limit to the number of fans of a Facebook Page
  • (a) A variety of Like buttons, potentially on each page of the website which will update Facebook Profile of website visitor when clicked. If the site is not going to be content rich this is less useful. If however, there is some killer content on the website that we would like to provide a viral effect, this could be relevant. For example, a Deals page or some such thing. (b) Activity button can show what friends are doing on the site (from the site). This is again more useful for information rich sites where there may be 1200 people and 10 friends that visit or have visited the site which influence how you navigate. (c) Can add a Comments element to any web page which updates a Facebook Profile. Feels less relevant for a site that isn't information intensive or blog style. (d) Recommendations - personalised suggestions for pages on your site they might like. Again geared towards heavy content sites.(e) Like box - like page and view stream directly from website. This is the sort of thing that could tie the website more closely to the FB presence. It is an embeddable Facebook Page. Perhaps more relevant for the Blog, if possible.(f) Other functions are around sites that have Sign ups or Registrations, again less relevant.- Login button- Registration - using FB for authenticationSource: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
  • A. Publish Tweets on FacebookHere is the most popular Twitter Facebook Application. Use the Twitter for Facebook app to:* find and follow your Facebook friends who tweet* post your tweets to your Facebook profile or Facebook page* encourage your Facebook friends to follow you on Twitter http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=2231777543#!/apps/application.php?id=2231777543&v=infoOr be more selective in terms of which tweets are updateshttp://apps.facebook.com/selectivetwitter/B. Publish Facebook Status Updates on TwitterChoose which pages and which status updateshttp://www.facebook.com/twitter/
  • Facebook Insights gives you key metrics such as the number of fans added per day, number of fans lost per day, unique views, page views, total fans, number of wall posts, photo views, video plays, audio plays, number of reviews and total interactions metrics. Facebook Insights is designed to tracks the effects of your Page promotion campaigns and does an adequate job.
