Facebook FanPage Manual (Pages Manual)

  1. 1. socialsmidge.com Fanpage Manual Facebook Pages Facebook Pages are a free product for organizations, public figures, businesses, and brands to communicate and build relationships with people on Facebook. Thanks to social media, businesses are able to foster relationships easily and quickly which can lead to a stronger following and increased awareness of your company, product, or services. A fanpage is unique in that you don’t have to request a friendship, rather anyone can see your page and updates by “liking” your page. Fanpages are also public facing - meaning they can be picked up in search engines! The following provides step-by-step instructions to create a basic Facebook Page. Before you get started, make sure you already have a personal profile (www.facebook.com).

  4. 4. socialsmidge.com Fanpage Manual Understanding your Page: To access your page, login to FB, then search your page name (i.e. socialsmidge) in the search box at the top. Once you find your page name click on it to be directed to your FB fanpage. You are now in the “admin” view of your fanpage. You are not in the “use facebook as page” view - we will touch on this later.1 The Like button is how users connect to your Page. When a person “likes” your page, a News Feed story is shared with his/her friends (i.e. “Kelly likes Your Page”). They will now be able to view the messages that you post on the wall.2 These are your navigation links and applications. Click “Edit” to move and delete links. This is also where you will set up events, discussions, or notes.3 This is the Photostrip. The most recent photos that you tag your Page in or post to your Wall will appear here. To hide a photo, roll over it and click the X in the top right corner.4 Use the Publisher to post an update, poll, photo, link, or video. Type the text in the box and click Share. The content will appear on the Wall and in the News Feeds of people who like your Page. 3 1 Quick Tips! You can reference an article from another website such as msn.com by copying (control C) and then pasting 4 (control V) into the status bar. When you reference an outside website, FB will try to pull a photo off that site. Add an image - find an image you like online and right click on the image, save as “photo” to your desktop. Attach it to your FB page by clicking Photo on the publisher. You can delete the photo once you posted it. Share your facebook posts with your2 friends. You can only share URL’s or photos. Tag your own company, a friend, or another company from your business page. Type @person’s name (i.e. @Kelly Lohman).
