Facebook “friending” etiquette

Facebook “friending” etiquette

  I can’t believe it’s been 7 days since I returned home from my Road Warrior Princess tour of Arizona! So…what have I been doing since my return you ask? Social Media networking, networking and networking some more! Talk about an ever changing “platform”! I spend hours each day following threads of information from one source to another – learning more and more about the integration of social media into our businesses and lives! It’s such a blast to put up a new Facebook Fan Page for a client and watch it grow with just a few easy steps. At first it may seem a little overwhelming or time consuming but it will pay off in the long run. Like growing a garden – your social media “gardens” require planting seeds, nurturing, watering, TLC and weeding before the harvest months later. Here are some simple suggestions to increase conversations and develop relationships: When you are sent an “invite”, take the time to click on their profile and find out a bit about them – where they live, their interests, what they do, etc. When you “accept” the invite…write a personalized message to each new “friend” Add them to one of your “friend” lists. Make “friends” lists – i.e. family, business over the counter friends, peeps, college, high school and on and on. On the “invite”, you’ll see a box that says “add to list”. Click on the box and you’ll see that you can create new lists. Be sure to reply in an uplifting and interesting way when people take the time to post to your wall. Post interesting, informative, educational and fun material on your wall which will keep people coming back to see the latest. Follow the 80/20 rule! 80% should be conversational or informative…and only 20% should be about your product or service!!!! Very Important! Otherwise, people will get tired of always being “sold” and will un-friend you! This is all simple social media etiquette…just like the kind your Mother taught you growing up. Above all else….be polite and respectful. I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather as we enter into Fall! In-Joy!
