Facebook -- facebook.com -- is a popular channel on the social web used by professionals, college students and retirees.

There are plenty of ways to be engaged and engaging. It's not just what you put up online, it's how you like, favorite, share news from others.

On Facebook one can like and remove a like (aka 'unlike'). But one can also share (aka endorse) and comment (raise questions or give compliments).

Be generous! There's more than just liking something or someone. Comments and shares have greater value than just 'liking.' If you want to amplify someone's post, share!

To share live video, tap on Update Status and then select the Live Video icon. You can write a quick description and choose the audience that you want to share with before going live. During your broadcast, you’ll see the number of live viewers, the names of friends who are tuning in and a real-time stream of comments. When you end your broadcast, it will be saved on your Timeline like any other video, which you can then delete or keep for your friends to watch later.
You can discover live videos from your friends and public figures you follow right in News Feed. While watching a live video, you can tap the Subscribe button to get notified the next time the broadcaster goes live. Learn more about Live in our Help Center.

Facebook on a laptop or computer operates differently than a mobile device.
Mobile Facebook does not allow one to share posts to groups or pages.
Likewise one cannot 'check in' using Facebook on a laptop.

How to use Facebook

Facebook members can join networks organized by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with others. Planeta.com has our own online group and we're using the service to announce events.

Ignore Facebook at your peril. This channel is a great tool to establish web presence and it can actually be a fun and engaging experience. It can be difficult when strangers ask to be your 'friend' but all that is required is some understanding of how it works.

Cost: Free
Requirements: Account on Facebook
Mobile app: Yes
Advantages: You learn the birthdays of your friends and reconnect with erstwhile companions
Shortcomings: Facebook forces users to re-familiarize themselves every few months with a new, website layout, which is less tidy, less user-friendly than the previous one.
Cómo usar Facebook

Miembros de Facebook pueden formar parte de redes organizadas por la ciudad, lugar de trabajo, la escuela, y la región conectarse y relacionarse con otros. Planeta.com tiene nuestro grupo propio en línea y estamos usando el servicio para anunciar eventos.

No haga caso de Facebook a su cuenta y riesgo. Este canal es una gran herramienta para establecer presencia en Internet y en realidad puede ser una experiencia divertida y atractiva. Puede ser difícil cuando los extranjeros solicitan ser su "amigo" pero todo lo que se requiere una cierta comprensión de cómo funciona.

Costo: Gratuito
Requisitos: cuenta en Facebook
Mobile app: Yes
Ventajas: Se aprende los cumpleaños de tus amigos y reconecta con amigos y compañeros donde quiera que se encuentren.
Deficiencias: Facebook obliga a los usuarios volver a familiarizarse cada pocos meses con un nuevo diseño, obligatoria sitio web, que es menos ordenado, menos fácil de usar que la anterior.

Essay

A good friend asks how best to use Facebook:

I wanted to have only a company account but you have to have it associated with a personal account, which is a problem. I'd like to have somebody to take care of the posts on the company facebook, but I can't because it is using my own account

if I am in a page which offers a share on facebook button. If I give it to that button, the link will go directly to my personal wall and not the company wall, where I would like it to appear. same happens with flickr and other automatic application that publishes automatically your pictures to facebook, well these will go directly to my personal account wall and not the company, it is really annoying and I don't know the way around it.

Instituto Chac-Mool wrote

I have a personal and a business Facebook account, and I didn't need to associate the business one with any other account. I use two different email addresses for the two accounts and I use Firefox browser for personal and Internet Explorer for business, otherwise they do seem to get mixed up. If I'm working on adding friends to the business account I always do it through Internet Explorer.

Ads

When you created your last ad, sponsored stories were also set up to help you achieve your goal. You'll see these stories in the Ads Manager next to your basic ads.
Congratulations on creating your first Facebook Ad!


Success Tip: You can improve your ads by targeting them to the right audience. **Learn more**.

**Influence**
Promote the actions on your page to influence friends of the people who like your Page.

Once you're on Facebook, you can get examples of current Facebook Pages by selecting the "Pages" tab while in the "search" mode and entering the names of products you sell and/or the names of your competitors. The majority of the large online retailers also have Facebook Pages.

Learn about unpublished pages

Setting up a Facebook Fan Box involves integrating four lines of JavaScript, which is available when you're on your Page. Just click "Add Fan Box" underneath your Page's profile picture. Each Facebook Fan Box includes the "Become a Fan" button.

Using Facebook Effectively


Tips from Guurrbi Tours

We ask for our customers e-mail address on our feedback forms, and then write inviting them to stay in touch through facebook. There's a good steady take-up rate. We also have a lot of people from Willie's community who are facebook friends, and who enjoy hearing about what Guurrbi is up to.

We have a personal page set up as Guurrbi Tours Cooktown - not a business page. I prefer this - it seems much more personal and interactive - but I know there are others who would argue otherwise, so check it out before deciding.

Like Twitter, the golden rule is don't just shove information out there - you have to interact with your Friends and Followers. Re-tweet or Share interesting posts. Take time to see what others are up to and leave a comment or simply click the 'Like' button. People will quickly ignore you if communication is a one-way street. It all helps to keep your product in your customers' minds, so they're more likely to talk about it/recommend it to others.

Other tips - make your page inviting with pictures, links to articles etc. Clear your page regularly of unwanted 'postings'. There are all sorts of apps on offer - do not get tempted into sending sea creatures to your friends or farm animals or answering questions about your horoscopes or playing weird games! Just hit 'Ignore' or Delete them if they land on your page. Remember potential customers are going to look at it, so make sure your page looks inviting, not covered in rubbish or pics of drunken friends!!

One other note - we are very selective about the pages we support and have a golden rule not to get involved in politics (although sometimes it's very tempting!!!) Much better to rise above it and not risk alienating customers!

Questions and Answers (Q&A)

How do I create a page for a local business?
https://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?

When a Facebook page has multiple administrators, how can you track which admin posted or hid posts?
There is not currently a way to determine which administrator took actions on a Facebook page.

How do I stop videos from playing automatically in my News Feed?
To stop videos from playing automatically:
  • Go to Settings and click Videos
  • Click the dropdown menu next to Auto-play Videos
  • Select Off


What's a pinned post?
Pinned posts are Page posts that admins have chosen to display prominently at the top of their Page. A pinned post always appears in the top left of a Page's timeline and has a external image 239180129497043_1459184373.png flag in its top-right corner. A post a Page admin pins to the top of their Page will remain there for 7 days. After that, it’ll return to the date it was posted on the Page’s timeline.

Posts from people who like a Page are not eligible to be pinned posts. Page admins can only pin posts created by the Page. More info

What is the Facebook like button?
The Like button enables users to make connections to your pages and share content back to their friends on Facebook with one click. Since the content is hosted by Facebook, the button can display personalized content whether or not the user has logged into your site. For logged-in Facebook users, the button is personalized to highlight friends who have also liked the page.

How do I add the Facebook like button to my website?
Go here

How can I schedule a post on Facebook?
From the admin panel page - where your own cover photos/header is located. Once you click the status box to type in a message two small icons pop up at the bottom of the box. One is a pin for location and the other is a clock for scheduling. Click on the clock and it will allow you to add year, month, day, time. The other way is to go to the "edit page" option and then click "use activity log." That will let you see all of the scheduled status updates you've made. This does not work on personal pages

How rude is it to unfriend people on Facebook who you don't remember until you get a birthday reminder?
It's rude but it does happen!

What is a Top Commenter?
Facebook automatically assigns Top Commenter status to users whose comments are most often liked by others.

Pages

Several things for you to remember:
  • You can only change the username of your page once after you set it the first time.
  • You can't transfer the ownership of a username to another party.
  • You can't violate anyone else's trademark rights.
  • If you are acquiring a username to sell it in the future (squatting), you will lose it.
  • Usernames may be reclaimed for other unauthorized usages.

Profiles and Pages

Facebook has released a new tool that lets users convert their personal profile into a Facebook Page. Though the terminology is often muddled, a key difference between the two features is that users can simply “like” a Page while they must “friend” (establish a mutual relationship with) a profile, which makes Pages a much better solution for businesses and public figures.

2010: Facebook Passes 500 Million Users!
Question of the Week - How do I tag someone on Facebook?
You can now tag your friends in your status or post. Type @ and then type the friend's name. For example: "Had lunch with @John Smith."
Another ugly reminder to check your Facebook settings — NOW!

How do I close a page on Facebook?
"New Facebook" has a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people who you've recently interacted with or interacted the most with (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile). So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa - you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!!

HERE'S THE FIX: On the homepage click the "Most Recent" title on the right of the Newsfeed, then click on the drop down arrow beside it and select "Edit Options", click on "Show Posts From" and change the setting to "All Of Your Friends and Pages" (you can also access the "Edit Options" link at the very bottom of the facebook homepage on the right)
Note: Business pages do not have a newsfeed however page owners should adjust the settings on their personal accounts.

We had a business page but it linked to my personal account and I didn't want my posts on the page so we created a fictitious person and made a facebook page for the business. Before I launch into inviting people, is that the right way to do it?
Response: What you're trying to do could backfire. I'd caution against it until you talk to someone who knows better.

Facebook: "We recently announced some proposed updates to our Data Use Policy, which explains how we collect and use data when people use Facebook, and our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR), which explains the terms governing use of our services.
We encourage you to review these proposed changes and give us feedback before we finalize them.

Quotes

Facebook is successful because they built an entire constellation of products by allowing other people to do the work. So Facebook is different for everyone. Some people spend all their time on Mafia Wars. Some spend all their time on Farmville. There are hundreds or maybe thousands of different high-quality time sinks available, so there’s something there for everyone.

We're going to be removing an old Facebook setting called "Who can look up your Timeline by name." We'd like to give you more info about this change.
What's changing: We're removing an old search setting called "Who can look up your Timeline by name"—but this won't change who can see what you've shared on Facebook.
What did this setting do?"Who can look up your Timeline by name" controlled who could find your Timeline by typing your name in search.What will happen when the setting is removed?Anyone will be able to look up your Timeline by your name — but if they go to your Timeline, they'll only see what they already have permission to see. Removing this setting doesn't change who can see your photos, status updates or other things you've shared.Why is Facebook removing this setting?When we created this setting, the only way to find you on Facebook was to search for your specific name. Now, people can come across your Timeline in other ways: for example if a friend tags you in a photo, which links to your Timeline, or if people search for phrases like "People who like The Beatles," or "People who live in Seattle," in Graph Search.Today, the best way to manage who sees your stuff is to use your Privacy Shortcuts (just click the

at the top of every page of the Facebook website), and to choose who to share with when you post new photos and updates.
