Hi Fellow Friends and Bloggers,
LIKE MY PAGE AS YOUR PAGE! Note: this is NOT a shameless plug at self-promotion on Facebook.
I wanted to share a tip that I’ve given out to those I’ve connected with not only here, but that have Facebook accounts and also pages, that may not know of this option. I have been on Facebook for 5 years as an individual and also have a page for my blog.. and we can help each other so much not only by “Liking” each other’s pages, but by “Liking” them AS OUR PAGE. Yes, you can do that. It’s also IMPERATIVE that you list your page under all your other social media buttons, not just a “Like” button for the article (Confused? Don’t worry, I included some very simple pictures). The side widget won’t do it.
There was a time, not too long ago, I thought Facebook was going to go the way of so many others, like MySpace, etc. as a fad. But I’m glad I was wrong as it continues to thrive on. Mark Zuckerberg (the creator) is not going to go quietly in the night, in fact, he’s abreast and on top of the trends and changes and continues to try to keep Facebook current, thriving and stable.
~~Note to those wondering, why on this earth do I ever want to be on Facebook? Well, I joined Facebook as an individual to stay in contact with my friends. When I started my blog, it was a no brainer to have a page too. It’s another outlet for getting your blog out, and it’s a HUGE one. Also, its a simpler means of getting out a jpg, or just a sentence or two that you might be thinking but don’t want to write a huge blog about. I invite you to view my page and “like it.” I also invite you to “Friend” me on my own personal FB page (Both pictures above are linked to the pages, respectively) and “Like” my page as your page too! (You also have the option of “Following Me” but you will only receive public posts and I don’t do much of that beyond what I already put on my FB Beginning Page). If you choose to friend me, feel free to message me for any and all advice, help, comments or questions once you get there, it comes really easy to me.~~
SO, here’s the pictures, and please comment below if you have any questions confusion. Click on the next two picture segments and view them “Gallery slide” style and the instructions are below.
That’s all there is to it. To view your “page likes” on your own page.. do this:
Also, and this is key too, add a button below on your blog to direct them to your Facebook page. You already have a “Share” button, and maybe a Facebook Widget on the side, but as I’m liking pages as my page, I need to physically go to that site, so the Widget doesn’t help. So for all of you I say create another share button for that purpose and here is a picture of what I mean:
Hope to see you on Facebook and Like your pages back!
Hey, for those of you not on Facebook but would like to be, if I get enough response I’ll be doing more Facebook 101’s in the future, so let me know!
