QUESTIONS, Please call me, 404-405-5442.
Whether you like Facebook or not, Facebook has become a major player in the consumer search market. What should I do as a businessperson? I have heard horror stories about users becoming victims.
Should I go ahead and create a Facebook account? NO! Facebook allows you to have either a personal or business account, not both. Either account types can have groups. There are numerous decisions, which must be made before proceeding. A how-to and a what-to will be provided to my managed accounts. However, guides will be published in our Knowledgebase at www.hostingbyeds.com, the home of FREE website hosting.
Facebook began as Facemask created by a Harvard student, Mark Zuckerberg, in the fall of 2003 blogging about a girl who had broken his heart. Harvard at that time did not have a student directory with photos, and basic information and the initial site generated 450 visitors and 22,000 photo-views in its first four hours online. That the initial site mirrored people’s physical community, with their real identities, represented the key aspects of what later became Facebook in January 2004. You can read the complete Face book development history at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Facebook
Fast forwarding to the present there are more than 500 million active Facebook users, 50% of Facebook active users log on to Facebook in any given day, the average Facebook user has 130 friends and People spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook ("Total active users" is defined by Facebook as a user who has visited the website in the last 30 days.)
As a businessperson I see an unlimited target markets for products. I see the ability to test a new and developing product. I see the ability to accomplish goals unattainable through any search engine.
Facebook has obtained notoriety for numerous reasons, such as confidence in the person you are communicating with due to real testimonials and comments, written by real people you can verify.
To only join Facebook and do nothing will yield you exactly that, nothing. All the experts agree, to benefit from Facebook requires a minimum of 4-hours a week.
Facebook is not a blog, even though it began as one. Facebook’s purpose is sharing information with those you wish to share information with and much more. But before you begin, a through research is recommended.
Remember this: The number one reason anyone sends their friends or comes back to you themselves is because of value. Always remember: nobody really cares about you and your business; they only care about what your business can do for them. Share information and news others can use and you'll build a list of meaningful contacts. Put out a stream of useless drivel or "quotes of the day" and you might as well not even join!
