If you use Facebook for your business/personal brand, keep your wall clean. Get rid of all that Farmville and horoscope crap.
You wouldn’t allow someone to mess up your store, then why allow it on Facebook?
Why should you take time to maintain your page?
1) Traffic – With Facebook getting so much traffic, it’s become an important extension of your business. For small businesses, it’s your best bet for valuable feedback and market research.
2) Story – When someone visits your page and the 1st thing they see a bunch of Pillow hits or Mafia Wars posts, they don’t get to the important content right away. People have a short attention span and you only have the top 2 posts to get their interest. Due to Facebooks currently poor archiving, your best content can get burried fast. You may find yourself posting the same content multiple times.
3) Response – you should respond to every wall inquiry. With your wall cluttered, it will take you longer to respond and even harder for visitor to read them. This may cause redundant questions wasting your time.
While attending college in the Philippines, I did some part-time modeling. It was probably my most eye-opening experience to date. Being a freelance model also meant that I was my own CEO, CFO, CMO, and CIO.
1) Perception rules
Modeling: As a model, it was all about how people perceived you. Casting directors didn’t care how nice of a person you were (for the most part). If you looked good, you got the job.
Business: In business, it’s how people perceive you is what matters. If you site is ugly but has great products, they may not stick around long enough to find out.
Lesson: Make a great 1st impression. Don’t release a product that’s not extraordinary.
I just installed Google Friendconnect on PinoyTattoos.com. It was pretty easy. 1) Upload 2 html files to your server 2) Configure your gadget and 3) Paste it. I only installed the Members gadget. I don’t know if I should add the Wall or Review gadgets yet. Will it take away from the post comments?
I think it has a lot of potential once connected to Myspace and Facebook. Somebody make a WordPress plugin please.
Just installed a new open source software – Sweetcron on ChristianCabuay.com. My initial impressions are that it’s good. However, I’m a spoiled WordPress user. While I realize that Sweetcron is still on beta 1.06, I’m anxious to get all the bugs axed and basic functionality in place.
