Show the basics so they are confident in creating pages for their organizations aswell as their personal use.
The number is continuing to grow, even though there are people who are eliminating their accounts.
Many people are on everyday. That is one reason to keep your page fresh and new to encourage return visits.
Vocabulary can be confusing and keeps changing. Remember fans and fan pages, now they are friends who “like” a Page. Some call a personal account a profile. They are different. Can only have one or the other. A Business account can be changed into a personal account, but a personal account can’t be changed into a business account. Today. Who knows in the future.
Look at a personal account/profile
This view shows the wall, the top bar where you can edit settings. You can see what it looks like to a friend. The public (anyone with a Facebook Account) can always see your name and your profile photo. You can limit who sees your other information.
This view shows the kind of information that is listed. I have it set that there is some information like phone number and birth date that are only visible to me. Notice the search bar. I can search for other people or businesses. Can have mutiple administrators, but they have to use the same email & account to administer the page.
Ets see how a business account looks.
This is the wall, what other people on facebook can see.
Yes you see a search bar, but it is not part of this business account it is from my account. We are looking at this business account from my personal account, see my name at the top bar? A business acount can not conduct a search. Youhave to determine what the account will be used for then decidde which is best for you; a personal account or a business acount. Are you using it to socialize or advertize?
A Page is made in an account. A page can be viewed by someone who does not have a Facebook account. They can’t “like” it or post to it, but they can see the wall. A group can be made in a personal account, but not in a business account.
Wall and posts
Information section . See disclaimer
There is only one view. No information section.
You can have a number of groups.
Decide what your goals are. I wanted a way to communicate with the volunteers and to also attract new volunteers. That is why I chose to make a page. I want to socialize with the volunteers, staff and other professionals and that is why I a chose a personal account over a business account.
This has changed recently. Used to be a spot on the personal wall to click on. Now have to go into account setting and under the help center to find create a page. After you get to this page you need to know which category you wan to use. I used organization.
A form opens and you just type the information in. Be careful as you can not change the category later.
This is how you switchbetween the account and the page. You can’t make any account changes while in the page view. You have to switch back to the account view.
After you have had 25 “LIKES” you can get a username. It makes it easier for people to find you on the internet.but again this can’t be changed. Be careful to make sure you are in the page when you want to create the username for the page.
Insights is one of the apps you can get for your page. It is easy to add these to the page. The help Center is great.
Thinks to think about when downloading photos. Photos tell a story and make your page more interesting.
Youcan’t keep people from viewing your profile phot. That is why I don’t use a photo of myself, but my favorite fish instead. When you set up your account or page the setting are open for everyone. You need to go in a customize them to what you want.
S many different settings.
My experience with the volunteer page.
