  • While Facebook’s application platform lets you build unique functionality for users of your page, you’re limited to the tools it provides, and the guidelines that accompany them. With many big companies are still trapped in a Web 1.0 mindset, ownership of the e-mail list is priority #1. You’re never going to get that with Facebook.

    16. 16. Cons of Facebook• Facebook may change: While Facebook is the current “it” social network, traffic may flatten and its future is not guaranteed. If users abandon Facebook, they’ll be abandoning your company/brand page too.• You’re Limited to Facebook’s Feature Set: If Facebook decides to drop or add features that aren’t popular, or imposes restrictions that kill your community’s growth, you’re out of luck.• No Data Ownership: You are limited by number of invites to your page and applications.• Your Competitors Can Do the Same Thing: There are no barriers to entry for Facebook pages. They can copy the popular apps you develop. They can join your group without your knowledge. 16

    24. 24. Converting a Group to a PageFacebook DOES NOT allow you to convert a groupto a page– Groups were part of Facebook BEFORE Pages were introduced– When Pages were first introduced Facebook temporarily allowed converting– Only way to migrate group members to page fans now is to ask them to ‘Like’ it– Post new page URL on group wall and invite member to ‘Like’ the page– Send a message and/or chat to members ask them to spread the news & like the page– Consider incentives to ‘like’ the page & suggest it (eg:% off a service, coupons, being entered into a drawing for a free gifts, etc.) 24
    25. 25. Converting your Profile to a Page• Facebook lets you convert a personal Profile into a Page! https://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?migrate – Cannot be undone – So be sure it’s your best option. – Friends will be converted into fans that ‘Like’ the Page – Only Photos will be transferred. NOTE: All other data lost! – Facebook will provide you with a stripped-down version of a Personal Profile, called a Business Account, which will be the admin of the new Page. It cannot become ‘Friends’ with anyone or ‘Like’ anything, etc. 25
    26. 26. Custom landing pagesCustom landing tabs good for branding &getting people to your website– Now custom tabs use iFrames (not FBML) & are more customizable than in the past– Can have interactive buttons, tabs, and animations– You require a designer to customize your landing tab– Some free applications available (not as customizable & usually include their logo) eg: Pagemodo.com 26
