I can’t do without Facebook:
Who doesn’t love facebook? It’s a wonderful place to get to know one another in a fun safe environment. When I finally moved out and got my own place, I missed my family so much. If it weren’t for things like phones and Facebook, I would find it more difficult to keep in touch. There ease of sharing things like pictures or videos of my holiday is a great way to show how I am doing.
There is a down side though. Yes there are some ads that usually show up on the right hand side of Facebook or above and below a game, but they are not so bad as some websites that plaster ads all over the place. Most of the ads on facebook tend to be more relevant to you because of what you search for. Facebook however doesn’t necessarily know if you have already bought something and are not looking for it any more. A good thing is the fact that you can tell Facebook, no I don’t like it, it’s against my views or uninteresting, even hide what you don’t want to see. This helps Facebook understand us and identify things more specific to better fulfill our needs. Facebook is always updating things and trying to make things run more smoothly for us. I hope they carry on. If we can choose the ads we want to see, every facebook will be even more unique to that user. All we have to do is log in and if we don’t want to see ads we wouldn’t have to. That would be a much better experience.
This is a particularly useful tool, especially for business users. It allows you to make a post then advertise it to get even more views. You can choose to only get views or clicks to a website, even for people to convert by buying something though your ad. Facebook has many options that you can customise to get more target visitors. You can even get tracking for the campaign you create, though many people use google tracking for this when they advertise elsewhere. I like that I can create an ad in a specific language or country. I can even specify a category, such as all people that like blogging or marketing or a company (if there advertising on facebook and have a page).
My favorite thing is a little secret I am going to tell you. If you use this to advertise your facebook page to get likes, you could get likes on auto pilot after accumulating so many. Here’s an example, I made an ad and got 110 likes in just 4 days, now about 2 weeks later my page as over 270 views and likes. This is also how I increased my website views as my link is shared and integrated with my Facebook page. (e.g www.facebook.com/mousiesblog).
Do you now see if your new page isn’t very popular and not being advertised anywhere, people may not favor it so much compared with other pages. By adding lots of content appropriate pictures, people will start sticking around longer, so long as you update it. Ever heard the term, one picture is worth a thousand words? Pictures can be great ads, everyone interprets them differently but the outcome is usually the same or similar. Once you have obtained a certain amount of views to your Facebook page, it will help reassure people your page is worth looking at and coming back to. It only took me 5 minutes to make an ad with FB and it was active within half an hour. I even got some views to my website within a couple of days, because I linked it to my page and ad. I would definitely recommend anyone to look into it further, it’s great fun to see my ad update when I log in. It’s reasonably priced and you can set your own limit.
